WelcOMe to October

Scenes from Sunday’s annual team retreat

Happy 12 Years Tranquil Space! (+ 7 years to Tranquility du Jour blog + 6 years to Tranquility du Jour podcast – whew, LOTS o’ anniversaries in October!)

As you may know, we began with humble roots in my 4th floor walk-up at 16th and U Street 12 years ago and have been tinkering with tranquility ever since. Below is a timeline that showcases our evolution over the years – from the launch of teacher trainings, our non-profit, international retreats, charity events, additional locations, TranquiliT, and Tranquil Space TV. It takes a village and none of this could have happened without our amazing team and cOMmunity! So thank you from the bottom of my heart for supporting the tranquility movement.

As we head into another year at Tranquil Space, I am filled with gratitude for the ongoing evolution of a tiny seedling that grew out of a deep desire to connect with like-minded individuals around a fire while sipping homemade chai post-practice. I’m constantly amazed at what can grow from an idea when sprinkled with love, reflection, patience, and heaps of hard work. Oh, and an unbelievable team full of passion for the yoga lifestyle doesn’t hurt!

I’ve been devouring Start Something that Matters by TOMS shoe founder and am more and more committed to make Tranquil Space a socially conscious organization every single day. We do this through small acts of recycling to our 1% for the Planet membership to donating resources to organizations making a difference in the lives of *all* beings (especially pigs – my latest obsession). I truly believe that Tranquil Space exists to serve – clients, our beloved cOMmunity, 4-legged friends, and society at large. Otherwise, why bother? Yes, yoga is powerful. But yoga is even more powerful when reaching beyond the 6’x2′ yoga mat!

After hosting Sunday’s Urban Retreat, I received an email from a participant who stated that until reading Hip Tranquil Chick, she didn’t understand how yoga translated into her everyday. Now she gets it and enjoys the exploration of it in her daily life. THIS is our raison d’être (of course I had to throw in some French)! How are you taking your yoga into the office, affiliations, home, weekend brunch, and free time? Let’s all seek ways each and every day to sprinkle tranquility through our thoughts, words, and actions.

May fall bring you mOMents of rejuvenation topped with kale chips and jasmine green tea coupled with an ongoing opportunity to live your yoga. Thank you for 12 amazing years!

Living yoga with you,

    Go Team!!!I

    I’m so happy that I could be there for the 10th Annual Retreat with Tranquil Space, in my 6th year with TS!! Thanks for all that you do! Also just wanted to mention that I love teaching Yoga at Work — bringing yoga out of the studio to people in other environments.

    Living yoga with you (too!),
