in the holistic and dynamic nature of yoga to meet the individual needs of those
with traumatic brain injuries (TBI), from wanting to rebuild strength and balance to managing
stress and finding comfort in a community of people with shared experiences.
TBI patients also have reported a greater sense of
belonging and ability to move forward with their lives after participating in a
structured yoga program. Patients often find yoga helpful in reframing their
TBI experience, which allows them to focus on what is possible for them moving
forward instead of constantly reflecting on what they have lost.
Those with questions about the LoveYourBrain program or who would like to sign up for a class can contact Matthew Wright at (765) 983-3092. Participants also can be referred by their neurologist.
The LoveYourBrain Foundation is a non-profit organization that improves the quality of life of people affected by traumatic brain injury and raises awareness about the importance of brain health.
Isolation, unemployment, failed relationships, and suicidal ideation are stark realities, compounded by gaps in community-based services and resources. On top of that, TBI is often invisible, leaving people misunderstood and without compassionate care.
