The Aligned Center in Irvington
The Aligned Center, offering 2,500 square feet of shared office and community space on the Hudson River, is now open in Irvington, steps from the Metro North station. The center features a waterfront deck and has several single offices available for potential members.
Founder Matt Ludmer calls the center a “mindful” shared work space designed to create a rich, diverse culture within which people can be productive and supported by community. “It offers offices for professionals who desire greater connection, balance and growth in their workday, inspiring growth in four dimensions: heartfelt community, lifelong learning, mindful awareness and financial abundance,” he says. “I created it after several successful decades on Wall Street, as I felt compelled to widen the scope of wealth through a holistic approach. You cannot be truly wealthy if you are not showing up or growing in these other aspects of life.”
The center already hosts a philosophy series on Mondays, the Westchester Buddhist Center on Tuesdays, somatic meditations and tai chi on alternate Wednesdays, and a free meditation session every morning and twice a week in the afternoon. Ludmer also teaches a monthly seminar, Invest and Relax, a less stressful approach to investment.
That diversity of use is intentional, he says. “The center is one of a kind, a place to inspire learning, contemplation and growth while serving as a productive work environment. Those who attend our classes or rent our offices have something in common: they are openminded and open-hearted.”
