Tranquil Space Foundation grew from Tranquil Space, a dynamic DC yoga community founded by Kimberly Wilson. In 2006, she collaborated with leaders within the community to launch a nonprofit with goals parallel to the guiding principles of Tranquil Space.
Tranquil Space Foundation’s first decade focused on empowering women and girls through generosity microgrants to like-minded organizations, sponsoring women filmmakers through the Lunafest film festival screenings held in Washington, DC and through TranquilTeens, a signature program blending mindfulness, creative activities, and leadership development designed to help girls 9th – 12th grade build healthy bodies and strong self-esteem. This program has been taught to over 600 girls in the Washington, D.C. area since 2007 by a team of volunteers and is currently being converted to an online program where we hope to serve many more women and girls. The final stage of this program is the 2017 public release of an eight-week facilitator’s toolkit complete with full curriculum.
