“How do you keep mindfulness a priority all through out the day, aside from your morning routine?
I have a membership at The Refuge Meditation near Fair Park. This studio space saved me after a difficult 2018 and continues to be a huge influence in my life.

”Born from the calling of native Dallas siblings Rachel and Alex Fox after years of venturing through the LA wellness scene, The Refuge is truly that…a refuge.

“If you can make it to The Refuge, an airy and cozy (and crystal-filled) corner tucked away in Fair Park, you absolutely should. Classes include a mix of yin and therapeutic yoga, sound baths, reiki, aromatherapy, and mediation, and run late into the evenings on week nights.
Towards the end of last year, I went on an Outdoor Voices-organized nature hike with an assemblage of cool fitness people, and heard one woman say The Refuge was the best thing in their life. That’s an endorsement….” continue reading
“Today we’d like to introduce you to Rachel Fox.
Rachel, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an entrepreneur.
In the present, you will usually find me at The Refuge Meditation in Exposition Park, a wellness studio I own and operate in partnership with my younger brother Alex. I compose these words from the loft of the private gallery + studio residence we share a few blocks down the street….” continue reading
A new meditation center, yoga studio and fine-art gallery has opened its doors in the neighborhood. Located at 4140 Commerce St., Suite 206, in Fair Park, the new addition is called The Refuge Meditation.
Among its classes, you'll find yoga programs (including vinyasa, restorative and therapeutic), meditation sessions, hypnotherapy and what it calls "modern magic," which fuses astrology and crystal healing to expand your range of emotion. (Check the schedule here to find daily class times.)
With just one review on Yelp thus far, The Refuge Meditation currently has a five-star rating…” continue reading
