Tranquil Lake Yoga and Wellness came into being in July 2020, as much by a turn of fate as by strategic planning. Tranquil Lake owner Megan Lake-Smith, a Registered Nurse since 2004, had been edging away from traditional medicine and leaning towards holistic health for many years. During one of the most difficult times in her life, yoga became a safe haven, a place where she could be honest with herself. Without fear of judgement, some days she cried through her yoga session, other days she laughed her way through challenging poses.
Megan had always been drawn to an active lifestyle, healthy eating habits, and wellness in general. Years of nursing had shown her the huge effect diet and exercise had on quality of life. But traditional nursing, and medicine in general, had only touched on the surface of stress management, relaxation, and true peace. Yoga tied in the final element of wellness perfectly.
In August 2020, after taking introductory courses at Lorain County Community College(LCCC) for certificates in Health Coaching and Group Fitness Instruction, Megan made the decision to resign from her position as a nurse educator at LCCC, and pursue yoga, fitness, and wellness full time.
Shortly thereafter, a beautiful couple contacted Megan and her husband Kevin about leasing a space in their hometown of Vermilion, Ohio.
The joyous decision to open Tranquil Lake was not difficult, but rather a spontaneous realization that it was just the right thing to do. Megan will be eternally grateful for the opportunity to follow her dream, and is eager to share her love of Yoga and all things wellness with each of you !
