Doing What We Can To Help
Causes We Support
Wounded Warrior Project
Each Memorial Day we hold a special class to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project. It began as a way to honor a family friend's memory as he donated money to this cause when he was alive. However, after experiencing PTSD and a brain injury resulting from a car accident, my desire to support our military friends and family who might have these issues from serving our country grew exponentially. I also have family who have experienced life-changing PTSD after serving in the military. Each Memorial Day our yoga participants show up to honor those they love. All that to say, we are big supporters of this cause and feel it from the bottom of our hearts!
Love Your Brain Yoga
Love Your Brain is a non-profit organization which believes that yoga, mindfulness, and community are essential to transforming the wellbeing of people impacted by traumatic brain injury. They have pioneered programs and trainings to empower the traumatic brain injury community with new tools, resources, and connections. Being in recovery for brain injury and having certification by Love Your Brain, I can attest to the power of yoga and the mind-body connection. Each Christmas we sell items to raise money to donate to the Love Your Brain organization.
Hickory Brain Injury Support Group
As a traumatic brain injury survivor, I am always looking for resources to help me cope with the complications of persistent concussive symptoms. This group has a fun, knowledgeable, and supportive group of people who are people with a wide range of brain trauma injuries, and their caretakers. It's great to come to a place with others who have shared experiences from which to learn and gain strength. My personal opinion is that Travis Glass, the facilitator of the group and also a traumatic brain injury survivor, specialist and counselor is the most knowledgeable brain injury specialist in the area.
