I opened Nao Meditation studio to give busy Baltimore residents like you a place to slow down, unwind and quiet your racing mind.

Located in the heart of Roland Park in Baltimore, we offer a range of meditation and mindfulness classes designed to fit your busy schedule. Whether you’ve never meditated a day in your life or you’ve been practicing for years, whether you can hold a tree pose for hours or you’re not sure what a tree pose is, Nao Meditation studio welcomes beginners, experts, and everyone in-between. We even offer classes for kids and teens. All you need is the willingness to learn and some comfy clothes (dress code: yoga pants!).


Seven days a week, people come here to escape the hustle of their day-to-day stress by practicing stillness and strength. Our historic studio may be close to home, but we’ve designed every inch to make you feel like you’re a million miles away.

Our team of practitioners specializes in a variety of practices, including various forms of meditation, yoga and Thai bodywork, Qi Gong, Holy Fire Reiki, Yoga Nidra and more. They’ve studied, refined and taught their practices all over the world.


And me?

I'm Kate.

An acupuncturist, business owner and crazy-busy mom of four (yes, four) dedicated to helping you slow down and shut off that never-ending to-do list running through your mind, even for just a little while.

As owner of our sister company Helia Integrated Health and resident chauffeur/chef/jungle gym for my four kids, I’m no stranger to the constant running around, the ever-growing mental checklist, and the feeling that you’re never truly relaxed and present. Just a few minutes of meditation a day has made me a more patient and present mom, a less stressed business owner, and a happier person all around. I can say without exaggeration that learning to embrace mindfulness has changed my life. I believe it can change yours too.

In fact, I know it can.


Researchers and scientists have discovered something that those who meditate have known for thousands of years: being free from the incessant stream of thoughts can actually make us happier.


Mindfulness is scientifically proven (just ask Google) to help you:

  • Reduce anxiety

  • Boost your immunity

  • Improve concentration

If you crave calm, more time for self-care, and your own quiet corner of the world, then I invite you to browse our schedule, put on your comfiest, stretchiest pants, and pencil in some quality time with the one person who doesn’t get enough of it: you.
