Silhouette Studio is located on a beautiful, secluded 17-acre estate in Gambrills, MD. Surrounded in all directions by undisturbed natural woods, the studio also features a private zen garden with seating around a bonfire table and an outdoor practice space overlooking a nature preserve. Set among the trees, the sounds of nearby waterfalls and gentle breezes provide a uniquely serene experience.
The studio itself is 750 square feet of open space, to include a full wall of mirrors, an indoor garden and beautiful bamboo flooring. The space is humidity and temperature controlled to ensure a comfortable class for all. Decorated in whites, grays, golds and silvers, this pristine space is a tribute to the importance of self-care and gratitude. The accent wall is adorned with a poem written by Katie’s late best friend, Melissa Temsook, about the beauty of movement. The dragonfly details are showcased to honor all those we have lost but not forgotten.
This exquisite space has been specifically curated to ensure our members feel pampered in a place that is as comfortable as home. Stepping into Silhouette Studio is like being welcomed with open arms into a beautiful and relaxing space that supports growth and ease.
