Why Love Your Brain Yoga?

Beyond Able is committed to eliminate barriers that contribute to disability. That’s why we want to bring you the opportunity to participate in a community based activity that takes into consideration the changes that have occurred in your brain and body after a brain injury.
Attend our free 6-week program, which incorporates:

• Gentle yoga to improve strength and balance
• Meditation practices to reduce stress
• Class themes to foster resilience and compassion
• Facilitated group conversation to build community
Our classes are small (10 participants: 2 teachers).

*** Due to the risks associated with the COVID 19 Pandemic classes we are only offering virtual classes at this time***
We incorporate strategies to focus attention, adapt poses to prevent dizziness and headaches, and use soft lighting and soothing music to limit sensory input and make the class environment more welcoming. Moreover, we build community and support each other.

The program is FREE! You have already spent enough money in doctor’s visits, assessments, rehabilitation, equipment, medicines….

our teaching team

Lauren Pauletti

I am a teacher at heart: I teach both in the classroom and in the yoga studio. My own yoga practice began in 2014 when I came to the mat for stability, strength, and self-acceptance. I completed my yoga certification through a foundation named Parahita, a Sanskrit word that means “yoga for all people.” This word describes my understanding of yoga as accessible to everyone, and I am honored to teach with BeyondAble and the LoveYourBrain Foundation who share this belief.
