Coworking spaces resemble an inbuilt artificial ecosystem of cohesiveness, collaboration and a medium for personal and professional development. Werklab coworking focuses on providing a holistic environment to its members and provides top-notch services and state of the art infrastructure aiming to develop their inherent attitude and ability to become successful freelancers, entrepreneurs, and innovators.
Coworking spaces are about building a community of like-minded people who are venturing together into the sea of budding startups or trying to make a name for themselves as a freelancer. But Werklab has transcended this definition of coworking spaces and wishes to emerge out as something more than a replacement for your regular office. The founder Christina Disler wants to inculcate the values of spirituality, mindfulness, and meditation into everyone because she thinks that unless you are connected to your inner soul you cannot work efficiently.
At Werklab Vancouver you will find an enabling environment which bridges the gap between entrepreneurs and innovators, where startups get a chance to upgrade their skills and approach. The community at Werklab is their best feature added with the aesthetic value that helps calm the soul and increase your thinking ability plus helps you focus. At this coworking space, work is not everything but the members of Werklab are known to be happier, convinced and they are about to reach the stag of satiety with their work. This is the reason why I had to take one-day membership of this magnificent coworking space in Vancouver.

Werklab Founder & Ideology
The inception of a coworking space is easier said than done. There are a lot of complex decisions and convincing people about the benefits and achievement of coworking places. Werklab founder, Christina Disler’s experience as a human resources manager taught her how to forge relationships and how to address a large group of people.
Around the lab, Christina is known to bring out the best in people, she is there for the members to help and steer them in the right direction. Although she may not have any experience or knowledge, what she lacks in experience she compensated for that in understanding your needs and the question that is constantly gnawing your brain.
She found peace after practising meditation and by inculcating a sense of spirituality in her lifestyle. The mindfulness of other and of her work helped her focus on what correct and what has to be done to make it right. This is the reason she has bagged 2018 30 under 30 entrepreneur award from BC business. She has earned various plaudits for her work towards building a community culture at Werklab Vancouver and has enjoyed her time as the ambassador for Cadillac Canada and Lululemon.
All in all Werklab Vancouver is not only about prospering in your business or meeting new clients every day. This coworking space will help you steer you in the right direction and enable you to achieve the last stage of Maslow’s hierarchy theory that is self-actualization. Coworking as a trend is on the rise and among the most revered coworking spaces, we hope that Werklab coworking comes at the top to show that work is not everything in life. A healthy mind, body, and soul is the perfect mix that makes us humans from mere mammals.
