Tranquil Space Foundation evolved from Tranquil Space, a dynamic DC yoga community that was voted one of the top 25 yoga studios in the world by Travel + Leisure in 2007. Tranquil Space was created by DC entrepreneur Kimberly Wilson, who grew the organization from a small, home-based business to a thriving, socially responsible enterprise. Tranquil Space helps yogis in DC and beyond explore the practice and principles of yoga through regional and international retreats and workshops. In addition, the studio’s Karma Yoga program offers special classes and events designed to raise money for charitable organizations.
Over time, Wilson became interested in doing even more to bring the benefits of yoga to a wider community. In 2006, she collaborated with local leaders to hatch the concept of Tranquil Space Foundation, building on her passion not only for yoga but also for helping women discover their full potential.
