A tech. worker who has focused on the art of slowing down will open a meditation studio in Downtown Boise soon.

Susan Cole is teaming up with Marisa Weppner who owns Sage Yoga for the new Source Meditation Space above Diablo & Sons on 8th Street downtown.

“I have a background in tech, working for companies like HP for more than 20 years,” Cole said. “I became truly interested in yoga and it bled into an interest in meditation.”

Now, she opened the 925-sqaure foot meditation studio in a former office space. A spare look with a high-end sound system will create what Cole calls an “energy oasis” above the hustle and bustle of Boise’s busy restaurant row.

“There’s something really unique about (Boise),” Cole said. “We have a lot of different kinds of people in this town, and there’s an ethos of kindness and attentiveness.”

Customers of Source can participate in instructor-led meditation classes, or use a key card to come up and use the space any time they want a few minutes of peace and quiet.

“I love the concept of this being a place where people can ground themselves and leave the static that builds up during the day.”

The studio opened earlier this month – and offers the first class free, plus a variety of packages.
