Walking into a MUJI store is a soothing experience: Diffusers make the air smell like herbal tea, while minimalist clothes and blank notebooks seem to promise a tidy, beautiful life. Now that MUJI’s physical shops are closed, the company is trying to offer a soothing online experience, in the form of meditation and calligraphy classes.

On May 1, MUJI hosted the first class in the series with New York yoga studio Sky Ting. In the IGTV session, Sky Ting instructors led a meditation and taught viewers simple phrases and techniques they could bring to their at-home meditation practices. You can still watch the short video here.

Next, two teachers will lead IGTV calligraphy workshops. Sam Teich will teach three classes on Fridays, May 8, 15, and 22. The first one focuses on Mother’s Day cards, so you can give your mom something beautifully handmade. If you fall in love with Teich’s short tutorials on MUJI, she also teaches her own online workshops and sells calligraphy guides and coloring books.

On Tuesday, May 19, Shinah Chang of Crooked Calligraphy will teach a live class at 5:30 p.m. EST. In the 30-minute, all-levels session, she’ll show how you can use your MUJI pens and stationery (or whatever lettering tools you have on hand) to make your own beautiful designs. Chang also offers her own calligraphy workshops and free resources.

Here’s to channeling the calm of a MUJI store!
