About Breathing Space

Mission Statement

The mission of Breathing Space is to provide wellness services and education for children and families, offering classes for all ages from newborn to adult in Washington, DC.

Breathing Space Family Yoga provides a place for all family members to experience the benefits of yoga.  Our yoga and Pilates classes include age-appropriate postures and movement, breathing exercises, meditation or mindfulness activities, and — in kids and family classes — games, songs and even art.

Founder’s Story

Like so many, Jen first came to the yoga mat because of an injury, seeking nothing more than to feel better and balance her body for running. She comes back to the mat because yoga invites her to embrace her body and mind with all its imperfections and then to look beyond them to the greater Self.

Itsy Bitsy Yoga for Tots with Jen MuellerWhen Jen became a mother, her yoga practice became even more important: for building strength and flexibility, as relief for the symptoms of pregnancy and then the stresses of parenthood, as a reminder of the miracle of the human body and of her own resources and capabilities, and a regular connection to her breath and true Self during a time of significant identity changes. Her weekly Itsy Bitsy Yoga encouraged her to embrace her daughter in the same loving, non-judgmental way that her own practice did for herself.

Plank on Bridge, Family Yoga Washington DC

After thoroughly enjoying baby yoga classes during maternity leave and being unable to find one in the neighborhood that fit her work schedule, Jen stumbled on a listing for Itsy Bitsy Yoga facilitators training . . . and signed up. That turned out to be the first step on the path that lead to Breathing Space Family Yoga.
