Office Location

Mindful Bodies is 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 here brief directions but please text Shawnta Wright at 919-812-3172 (c) or call 919-286-1108 (o) if you need more detailed directions. There are 2 options: 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 between 2 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 Durham County Sheriff marked and unmarked cars that are sometimes parked outside of office area 3 (the Sheriff’s department has an office in office area 3). You can also look for a gold Toyota Camry (my car) which is usually parked near the office area 3 door. There is also a white wall right beside office area 3 and on the other side of the wall is mall entrance 10 (where the shoe department and bath and both works are located)so you could 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 though mall entrance door either 3 of the exterior glass doors. Locate a mall map 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 right beside the Ashley Stewart store (Ashley Stewart is right beside the Shoe Department). Go through the office area 3 door then go downstairs, past the bathroom on the left & water fountains to office 303C. You can also ask a Mall Security guard or ask at the customer service desk where office area 3 is located.
