What is Levitate with Ryan Nell?

Whether they’ve overcome great personal hardship, launched a social enterprise, or changed the way we think about a subject, all of them are united by passion, purpose, and the desire to make the world a better place. None of them have done it alone. So as we chat to these amazing people, we’ll explore how community and connection have made a difference to their journey.

At Levitate, we’ve been helping people to connect mind, body and soul since spring 2018. We teach meditation and mindfulness for the real world to people with busy minds. We do this in drop-in group classes at studios and companies. We get all our inspiration from connecting with the community, and we’re so happy to have you here.

Although the journey towards fulfilment can be a lonely one, it is made immeasurably better when you have a supportive community around you. This is the power of connection. Let's lift each other up!
