Yoga is a great way to relieve stress, build strength and increase flexibility for participants of all shapes, sizes and strengths. VBIS holds yoga classes for brain injury survivors and their families on Thursday evenings from 6-7pm. Classes are led by Helena Mitchell. Helena is a 200 hour registered yoga teacher and has been practicing yoga for over ten years. Her approach is open, playful and lighthearted.
A Peer Supporter is available Monday through Thursday in our community room. This volunteer, who has experienced an acquired brain injury themselves, is trained to support new members, facilitate group conversations, answer questions about brain injury and refer survivors to useful community resources. They pass on useful coping techniques and share their experiences with other survivors and their families. Please drop in!
