LoveYourBrain Studio Partnership Classes
We are beyond excited to be kicking off our partnership with LoveYourBrain!
LoveYourBrain (LYB) is a non-profit organization that aims to improve the quality of life of people affected by traumatic brain injury—from concussion to severe injury—through programs that build community. The LYB Yoga program supports people who have experienced a TBI and their caregivers to participate in community-based gentle yoga and meditation classes tailored to their needs. We believe that everyone should have an opportunity to improve and restore their physical and emotional wellbeing through these practices. LoveYourBrain is the message that embodies our positive approach to brain injury prevention and recovery. Everything LYB does is about connecting, educating and empowering people to promote a brain healthy lifestyle. Learn more here.
We have chosen to partner with LoveYourBrain because we believe we can offer a supportive and healing environment for these individuals and have several TBI survivors in our community already.
The LoveYourBrain Yoga program is a 6-week yoga and meditation series, that is FREE for people who have experienced a TBI and their caregivers. The first series will begin on January 15th and registration is required by both people with TBI and their caregivers on the LYB website: http://www.loveyourbrain.com/yoga/practice
