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 was converted to an online program where we hope to serve many more women and girls. The final stage of this program is this eight-week facilitator’s toolkit complete with full curriculum.
After 10 years focused on Tranquil Teens, we’ve shifted direction to animal welfare issues and created the Pigs & Pugs Project. The Pigs & Pugs Project (PPP) raises awareness, educates the public, and helps to fund pig sanctuaries and pug rescues throughout the United States.
