Sep 27, 2016 09:40PM
Type A White House staffers and lobbyists now have a new place to drop-in for a power nap or to meditate just steps away from the White House, called recharj. The DC studio will offer a variety of meditation traditions in class format for all levels, as well as 20-minute power nap sessions. In addition to classes, recharj will offer private one-on-one instruction, self-guided digital content, workshops and corporate programs, to provide clients with intensive practice opportunities. The studio is located at 1445 New York Avenue, NW, Suite 130.

The Virginia-based wellness company recharj "softly" opened doors to its first studio in our nation’s capital in September with the official Grand Opening slated for mid-October. This will be the first studio opening for recharj. “Washingtonians are feeling more stressed and fatigued than ever before. Our new studio offers a sanctuary to meditate, sip tea, power nap and ‘recharj’,” states Christine Marcella, recharj’s D.C. studio manager. “In other words, it’s a space for people to reboot and sharpen their minds in preparation of their important work.

“For businesses, we offer an invaluable path to boosting productivity and engagement,” founder Daniel Turissini comments. “It is no coincidence that our first studio is in the nation’s capital.”

The space also features a range of amenities including private cubbies and a kitchenette stocked with premium teas and other beverages. A full retail boutique will showcase men’s and women’s casual wear, as well as a variety of accessories to meet everyone’s mindfulness and lifestyle needs.
