Welcome to The Cushion Crawl (2017 Edition)

August 08, 2017

DATES CHANGED DUE TO IRMA --> NOW OCT 20 - NOV 9TH. 

Welcome to The Cushion Crawl (2017 Edition)

The Cushion Crawl is like a Pub Crawl, but for Mindfulness. It’s a 21-day challenge that will inspire you to build a practice of connecting to the present moment. (REGISTER HERE)

 

The Crawl is about more than just meditation. It’s a lifestyle. Because Mindfulness isn’t only sitting cross-legged in silence, listening to a soothing voice on an App. Mindfulness is practiced when you are in the moment and in your body (embodied). Meditation, yoga, exercise, and running are all a part of it. In fact, anything you do that gets you out of your head and into the NOW qualifies.

At the core of the Crawl are 21 meditations at 21 special, exclusive, and unique venues in Miami. And for those of you who want to explore Mindfulness beyond meditation… we allow you to substitute Move sessions (yoga, exercise, run) for a portion of the Meditation sessions - at premier facilities.

And because this is a challenge, we're incentivizing with slightly outrageous prizes, thanks to the contributions of our epic partners. When you make 5 stops along the crawl, your prize will be worth $500+. When you reach 20 stops, you'll win prizes worth $2,500+. For those dedicated Mindfulness Warriors who achieve 21 stops, there are grand prizes from our supporting sponsors

Thank you for joining us on this journey inward. You are literally on the cutting edge of the Mindfulness revolution in Miami and beyond. To learn more about the Crawl, read on!


HOW DOES THE CHALLENGE WORK AND WHAT ARE THE FEES?

Every day for 21 days, starting on Friday, September 15th you’ll  join Miami’s mindful community in exploring 21 different venues while exploring yourself.

Your registration covers 21 Meditate Sessions, and makes you eligible for prizes. The fees are:

  • $49 Registration for the 1st 50 Crawlers
  • $59 Registration for the 2nd 100 Crawlers
  • $69 Registration for the 3rd 100 Crawlers
  • $159 Cushion Crawl + Festival Ticket Bundles (a $17-$37 discount, depending when you buy)

REGISTER HERE

To attend a Move Session (yoga, exercise, run), you pay a reduced drop-in rate* directly to the studios. If you already have a package, membership, or ClassPass, you can use that to access the class. Drop-in rates are:

  • $15 drop-in (or less) for yoga
  • $20 drop-in (or less) for fitness
  • Run club is (always) free

We’re sorry but once you register, there are no refunds!

DO I NEED TO RSVP AND CHECK IN FOR EVERY CLASS INDIVIDUALLY?

Yes! Your registration confirms participation, but you must sign in AND check in every session. Like this:

  1. You RSVP for each day you’re attending 
  • RSVP for all events will open on September 10th
  • You are guaranteed a space in each Meditation Class
  • You must RSVP at the link above for Move classes, and then separately contact partners to reserve a space in one of their classes. This is totally your responsibility.
    • You check in physically at the session
    • At Meditate and Run events, check in directly with a Modern ŌM staff
    • At Yoga and Exercise events, check in directly with front desk as you sign in for your class

      Only by RSVPing AND Checking In will we count your attendance towards your Points. Unfortunately we can’t make exceptions - you’re in charge of confirming your attendance. If you have questions, email us at cushioncrawl@modernom.co.

      HOW DO I WIN PRIZES AND WHAT ARE THEY?

      You earn Points to unlock your prizes. We want you to win, to be encouraged, and to have a ton of fun… A perfect score is 21 points (which you get if you attend every Meditate Session). And the prizes, courtesy of our partners, are intended to motivate you to practice with us. There are 5 levels of prizes:

      • 5 points (5 stops) - $500+ of prizes from our partners and sponsors
      • 10 points (10 stops) - $1,000+ of prizes from our partners and sponsors
      • 15 points (15 stops) - $1,500+ of prizes from our partners and sponsors
      • 20 points (20 stops) - $2,500+ of prizes from our partners and sponsors
      • 21 points (21 stops) - Perfect attendance makes you eligible for grand prize drawings

      REGISTER HERE

      Prizes are contributed from our partners

      We recognize that making 21 days of meditation is almost impossible, so we’ve designed this Challenge to be do-able, even if with a hectic schedule. Here’s how you earn points.

      CRAWL POINTS:

      1. All Meditate sessions = 1 point
      2. All Move sessions = 1 point, but with limitations* (please read)
      • To access the 5 stop prize level, 2 points can be Move (3 must be Meditate)
      • To access the 10 stop prize level, 3 points can be Move (7 must be Meditate)
      • To access the 15 stop prize level, 5 points can be Move (10 must be Meditate)
      • To access the 20 stop prize level, 7 points can be Move (13 must be Meditate)
      • To be eligible for grand prize drawing 21 stops, 7 points can be Move (14 must be Meditate)

        * you can’t just take Move classes and win prizes. We are allowing approximately  1/3 of the Crawl to be swapped for Move classes, which we think is fair and fun.
