Austin Startup Week Special - All Attendees Receive Complimentary Tickets

2 Hour Power Session, Yoga Fusion & Meaningful Products + Services


Our bodies are the closest form of perfected design we have at our disposal for inspiration and growth. When we practice wellness we are cultivating the intuition necessary to take care of ourselves. Our goal is to be our most efficient selves so we can have energy and time for work and play.

We mix traditional yoga poses with Pilates, resistance training and motivating music. This blending of techniques focuses on combining mind and body exercises with the benefits of strength, aerobics, balance and flexibility.


As we enter into the next wave of technology we need to start thinking beyond stickiness and click-throughs. Our next chapter involves far more profound implications. The Internet of things (IoT) will require privacy and security. Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning need to be designed with transparency protections for people. Virtual reality (VR) could potentially take the notion of hallucinogenic experience beyond any door of perception Aldous Huxley could have possibly imagined.

We are entering the experience age. It will be immersive and exciting. The lines between reality and virtual will blur into an entire refocus of culture.


This intensive 2-hour session is about exploring through meaningful contemplation the qualities of authentic design; as well as, the deeply unique nature of your own personal design practice. You will be guided through an excercise that will provide you with the building blocks to create experience maps, service blueprints and conceptualize how products and services must align to the needs of the people who use them.

OCTOBER 12, 3:30PM - 5:30PM

Join us for an energizing two-hour session. We'll begin with an hour of yoga fusion that incorporates our signature Mind + Body and The Art of Listening programs.Follow by asking tough questions concerning how we might develop, interact and experience Meaningful Products + Services.
