The Body Mind Being Institute relaunched its yoga training program in an online format.
The sessions will focus on using yoga as a means of treating stress, anxiety, depression, PTSD and more. The first offering will be a 10-week program titled Being Grace. Sessions will be held on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8 p.m. and taught by BMBI founder Raechel Morrow. Participants will need to sign up on the Being Grace webpage.
“Being Grace was born out of a deep understanding about the trauma that exists in the world we are living in today,” Morrow said. “Your chronic stress, fear, sadness, anxiety, addiction and trauma response are your body’s emotional systems communicating that your fundamental needs are not being met.”
The BMBI is a Grand Rapids-based organization that provides trauma research, education and healing through therapeutic trauma-sensitive yoga. It also runs a nonprofit, the Body Mind Being Project, which offers free wellness, resilience and stress management programs for community members, families and mental health workers who have experienced trauma.
