Founder's Muse
Kimberly WilsonHappy April and happy spring. A glorious, transformative time of the year. As I reflect on the transitions taking place, it's as if DC is coming alive after months of stagnation. Cherry blossoms are blooming, birds are singing, and from time to time we're able to don open-toed shoes to yoga class. Read more

Yogi of the Month

I am so honored to be Yogi of the Month! A friend brought me to Tranquil Space a year ago and I completely fell in love. My practice here has done so much for me physically and mentally. I'm a dancer from way back, but was no longer dancing when I first started at TS because of injuries and, frankly, a weak core. Read more.

Teacher Feature
Over the past month or so, the crazy weather in DC has really caught me off guard. Being from the south, I'm not used to drastic ups and downs like this, and it's been doing a number on my balance--both mentally and physically. Similarly, with the change in time (yes, I'm still adjusting from "springing forward"), I've felt a bit off-kilter for the past couple of weeks. Read More.

The boutique at Tranquil Space carries a delightful selection of treats to enhance your practice on and off the yoga mat - mala beads, books, aromatherapy spray, soy candles, eco-friendly mats, and handmade mat bags. Read more.
