Love your brain

To our beloved LoveYourBrain Community,

Human connection has always been the driving force behind our work.



COVID-19 is impacting our world in unprecedented ways. People are universally experiencing isolation at this time of social distancing. Individual and social resilience is being put to the test, as people grapple with new, immediate, and long-term challenges.

But at LoveYourBrain, we feel equipped to support you during this time of uncertainty. That’s because our work is designed to help improve the quality of life of those facing the very real adversity that accompanies traumatic brain injury (TBI). Supporting people through intense isolation and helping people cultivate community and resilience is what we already do.

In this moment of global adversity, we are expanding our work, reaching more people who need us, and innovating some of the ways in which we build community. Though our partner studios may be temporarily closed, and our place-based retreats postponed, we’ll continue to support people through online offerings. Remote accessibility has always been a part of our programs, because for many impacted by TBI, leaving the home while healing is just not an option. For the past year, we’ve been laying the groundwork for a digital expansion and enhancement of our offerings, and building a team capable of increasing our online programs. Now, we start that work today.

Over the next days, weeks, and months, we’ll be sharing tools and resources with you digitally and virtually. And we’ll be innovating what we believe to be essential to your wellbeing: the practice of yoga, mindfulness, and community. Here’s how: 

 


Yoga

  • For the health and safety of you and our teachers, we've made the difficult yet important decision to cancel all in-person LoveYourBrain Yoga programs at all of our partner studios across North America from now until June 30th. We’ve also postponed our Vancouver and Toronto Yoga Teacher Trainings.

  • We have solutions: We’re creating a virtual, six-week LoveYourBrain Yoga program so that participants can access yoga and meditation in their own homes, on their own time.  We’re also continuing to offer our online 7-hour training for yoga teachers and clinicians.


Mindfulness

  • We’re innovating: We are rapidly creating free offerings (e.g., live-stream classes) based on our pillars of mindfulness, movement, nutrition, and community. You can access our existing online resources which include Meditations, Yoga videos, and other tips.

  • Join the 650+ people across the globe to meditate daily for the rest of March through our Meditation Challenge. You’ll receive an email every morning from now through the end of March. Afterwards, you’ll be able to access all 31 practices from March until the end of the year.


Community

  • We’re committed to supporting our 60+ partner studios and 336 LYB-certified Yoga Teachers who bring our programs to you in-person. We recognize the intense and specific challenge this pandemic is bringing those in the yoga and studio industries. 

  • We’re committed to supporting our LoveYourBrain Yogis during a time when their local community studio may be closed. You can access free LoveYourBrain Yoga videos now, and expect new digital content beginning in May!

  • All Community Retreats scheduled now through June 30th are postponed. We’re committed to supporting all retreat attendees, and keeping them updated as things evolve.

  • Our fundraising efforts are still ongoing during MindfulMarch. In fact, with the added costs of technology and innovation to support our community, it is imperative that we remain on track to-goal.
