Today, Take Five Meditation celebrates our 1 year anniversary. We have so much to be grateful for. So many incredible things have happened in our space, we have met amazing people, have watched our guides open new doors for our students in ways that nobody imagined.
Here's a quote from one of our students after taking our sometimes offered Art From The Heart class. In so many ways it sums up why we ventured into this journey.
Nothing makes us happier than observing that joy and connection our students make with themselves when they are in the studio.
Washington, D.C. proves itself to be a driven community, made up of beautiful, hard-working and compassionate people who want to make the world a better place. It will always be our mission to provide an oasis and a place to grow for this wonderful community.
Our heartfelt thanks goes out to our students, all of our partners, our families, and especially the brilliant and gifted people who teach at Take Five as our guides.
We look forward to many more years together ahead.

We love using essential oils aromatically around here. For emotions, energy, focus, sleep, system support, cleansing the air and so much more! BUT, have you ever wondered why they work?? 🤓🤓
When you breathe in essential oils, their odorant compounds (what makes up their aroma) reach your alveoli, along with the oxygen in the air. You have about 700 million alveoli in your lungs; they are thin filters that transfer oxygen from your respiratory system into your bloodstream. Since alveoli are so thin, essential oil molecules get absorbed very easily from your respiratory system into your blood and then travel quickly to all parts of the body! .
Essential oils can also affect your limbic system. This system is related to your mood, memory, behavior, and emotions. How does this happen? There are many smell receptors in the lining of your nose, and when you smell something good or bad, these receptors send a response to your brain (like when you instantly gag changing a dirty diaper or smile when you smell fresh baked cookies!). When a scent arrives to the limbic system, your body responds by releasing unique chemicals into your brain, causing a reaction. The sense of smell can have a profound impact on your emotional state and inner desires because it is directly connected to your limbic system! -Young Living Training and Education .
Aren’t essential oils awesome?! I am always amazed at how complex, yet simple, essential oils are! .
