Office Location

Mindful Bodies office lease ends on July 31, 2020 so we will move to a new location. We will update our office location on this webpage when we have signed the lease on our new location.

Until then, we are located on the lower level (basement) of Northgate Mall in Durham NC, in office area 3/ office 303C. It can be confusing about how to find our office the first time so you may have to utilize a mall map/ mall directory or ask a mall security guard or customer service desk staff where office area 3 is located. Please note, there are 3 different office areas on the lower level (office areas 2, 3 & 6). Here are 2 options for finding office area 3: Option A is if you drive behind the mall and Option B is if you come inside the mall.

A) Enter the mall’s campus through the Gregson Street side of the mall. Drive past the Northgate Movie Theater & past the Parking Deck. You will be driving on the backside of the mall, where there are plain brown doors with numbers and names of businesses. Slow down by the Office Area 2 glass door because the office area 3 door, which is approx. 50 yards away, is difficult to see & is easy to drive past because cars park in front of it. Consider parking at office area 2 & walking to the office area 3 door ( which is beside blue trash/ recycling bins & a huge white wall). Go inside the office area 3 door & down the hall to office 303C.

Other tips for finding the backdoor to office area 3 is to look for large moving DC Movers trucks, which may prevent you from seeing the office 3 area door, You can also look for my gold Toyota Camry which is usually parked in front of or near the office area 3 door. There is also a white wall on the right side of the office area 3 door & on the other side of the wall is mall entrance 10 (where the Shoe Department and Bath and Bodies Works stores are both located) so you could also park at mall entrance 10 and walk down past the wall to office area 3.


B) Enter the mall’s campus through the Gregson Street side of the mall & turn into the movie theater parking deck. Park & enter the mall through either 3 of the exterior glass doors marked mall entrance. Locate a mall map/ mall directory and locate office area 3 on the map or locate the Ashley Stewart & The Shoe Department stores on the map. The glass door to office area 3 is located beside the Ashley Stewart store, which is beside the Shoe Department. Go through the office area 3 glass door then go downstairs, past the bathroom on the left & water fountains to office 303C. If you are lost, utilize a mall map/ mall directory, ask a Mall Security Guard or ask the customer service desk staff where office area 3 is located.
