recharj® is the premier meditation studio in Washington, DC. Just steps from the White House, we deliver peace of mind in a noisy city. We feature “best in class” meditation teachers offering accessible and enriching classes from a variety of traditions. Come experience an inspiring meditation session or power nap during your workday. When classes are not in session, our meditation room is open to the public for self-guided practice.
1) First, register by creating an account online with your name, phone number, and email.
2) Next, purchase a class or bundle. You must have paid classes in your account in order to reserve a cushion or cocoon.
3) To reserve a class, simply select a class from the schedule, choose an available spot from the studio map and click confirm. You can check your schedule and spot reservation at anytime in your account. Our schedule is released bi-monthly, so you can reserve a class up to two weeks in advance.
If the class you want is full, add yourself to the waitlist. As reservations are canceled, the list moves up automatically and emails the next person. If you’re emailed and can’t make it, just cancel online. If you sign up for the waitlist, it’s the same as signing up for a class – if you make it in and don’t cancel in advance, we expect to see you! If you move from the waitlist more than 30 minutes prior to class and do not attend, you will receive a late cancel charge. If you move from the waitlist less than 30 minutes prior to class, you will be early canceled if you cannot make it.
In order to cancel a spot reserved in a class and return the class to your account without penalty, you must cancel the class. If you have purchased an individual class and you haven’t cancelled a spot reserved within 12 hours of your class, the class will not be returned to your account, you will be charged for the class, and you will not be issued a refund. To cancel, log into your account and, next to the class you wish to cancel, press “unreserve.” Any issues, please Call us to cancel the class for you.

ATTIRE + SHOES: There is no preferred attire. Come as you are or however you are most comfortable. Our sessions are not physically intensive, so most any attire is appropriate. Since we are a barefoot studio, we ask that you remove your shoes before entering the space and stick them in a cubby.
BRING WITH YOU: Please remember your ID to show the front desk upon arrival.
STORAGE + CHARGING STATION: We have cubbies for storing your belongings as well as an area to charge your cell phone.
CHECK IN: Please arrive 15 minutes early and check in at the iPad stand or with the front desk crew. Digitally initial next to your name and preselected spot number. You’ll sign a waiver and get prepped on our style of class. If you are not signed in 3 minutes prior to class, your spot may be given away.
WATER + TEA: Water and premium Rishi tea are available to you at no charge. Take a moment before class to enjoy a beverage and socialize.
ETIQUETTE: Bring good vibes into this space and treat others how you’d like to be treated. To preserve the experience and respect the ritual, we ask that you turn off your cell phones in the studio. The studio is equipped with cubbies and a charging station.
MEDITATION SETUP: As a new meditator, feel free to ask your instructor questions. After you have found the correct posture, our instructors will take you on your mindfulness journey.
POWER NAP SETUP: Our staff will assist you in locating your napping cocoon (complete with pillows and a blanket) and opening/closing the draperies. Lay back and relax as lights are dimmed and soothing sounds are played as you drift off to sleep.
SAFETY: Although there are few safety concerns while napping or meditating, it’s important to listen to your body and remember that you are in complete control. Our studio is the perfect environment for each meditator and napper to take every session at a pace that works for them.
Our Workshops and Events involve greater breadth and depth of everything. More background and teachings on the topic at hand. More meditation. More time to get into how this whole thing applies to your daily life.
Featuring recharj®’s expert faculty or special guest stars, events are an opportunity to really go deep with meditation and community bonding.
Listening to music through your ears provides one level of experience. Feeling the music you simultaneously hear, harmoniously resonate through your entire body and brain, takes the experience to an entirely new dimension of deep body/mind relaxation, sensory integration, and rejuvenation.
We offer private instruction with all of our teachers. In your hour-long session you meet with the teacher
of your choice on how best to establish a regular practice and what classes you should be taking.
We get that integrating a daily practice into a busy city life can be a challenge, so this is an
opportunity to explore how meditation fits into your work, family, social or romantic life.*
*note: yes, meditation helps to enrich all of these things.
