LOVEYOURBRAIN DOES MARCH YOGA MADNESS
LOVEYOURBRAIN YOGA | 4.6.2015
March is Brain Injury Awareness Month, and LoveYourBrain partnered with yoga studios for the month to promote March Yoga Madness, a campaign to spread awareness, raise funds, and bring more love to brains everywhere. For LoveYourBrain, yoga and meditation are key components on the road to recovery for brain injury survivors, so raising awareness through a yoga campaign was something to get excited about.
The LoveYourBrain Yoga Program supports individuals with traumatic brain injury to participate in affordable yoga and meditation classes tailored to their specific needs. We believe that every survivor should have an opportunity to improve and restore their physical and emotional well being through these practices.
We had an absolutely incredible amount of support and collaboration for March Yoga Madness, and studios around the country, (and abroad!) joined us by offering donation-based classes to raise money for LoveYourBrain. We set our goals high, hoping to partner with 50 studios representing each state to offer classes to support our cause. Thanks to all of you, old friends and new, we surpassed that goal, reaching over 800 new people through 61 studios in the United States and three abroad! All in all, with a total of 83 studios in three countries (thank you Canada and England!) we were able to make Brain Injury Awareness Month a huge success for LoveYourBrain.
What Do All Of These Numbers Mean?
We were able to bring the topic of brain injury and the healing power of yoga and meditation to over 60 new settings. This has fostered a new community of engaged individuals who are now familiar with LoveYourBrain’s work and better understand the potential for yoga and meditation to transform the wellbeing of brain injury survivors. We have expanded and deepened the roots of our LYB family and demonstrated that brain healthy practices like yoga and meditation are powerful ways to connect us all. The money we have raised will help us roll-out yoga teacher training workshops for our program across the country.
We are beyond inspired and grateful and want to thank everyone who participated and supported us to help make this effort into such an incredible success!
