How your donations help:
Currently Bee Happy Wellness is offering trauma sensitive, recovery based yoga and mindfulness group sessions to people in recovery. We are currently offering these sessions free to small groups. We focus our services for people in recovery who have already completed acute treatment and are trying to reintegrate into a life with healthier coping mechanisms. We are building a strong community and tackling addiction 1 person at a time.
We have begun a fundraising campaign to build our own wellness center so that we can bring more tools and time into our offering for people in recovery. We would like to grow our space so we can increase our impact on the recovery community. Our focus is relapse prevention by using as many tools as possible.
Yoga and mindfulness is not meant as a replacement for traditional medicine however is most effective when used together.
Mission Statement: Provide a safe nurturing environment for long term recovery using the techniques of yoga, bodywork therapies and community for holistic approach to wellness.
At Bee Happy Wellness we aim to provide a safe nurturing environment free from judgement where people can come to find their path to optimal physical, spiritual, mental and emotional health. We do this through the physical practice of yoga; bodywork therapies; breath work and breathing exercises; meditation techniques; and community programs. Most importantly we wish to make these services affordable to people who are actively in recovery by subsidizing or fully sponsoring those who are learning to adjust to a life with healthy coping mechanisms. There are many treatment resources for people in acute phases of addiction; but often people face challenges reintegrating after the conclusion of traditional addiction treatment. Incorporating yoga and meditation as a routine practice has been proven to be very beneficial as an ongoing tool for long term recovery and emotional well-being.
At Bee Happy Wellness we believe that optimal wellness is a recipe that is unique to every individual. We help each person find their own recipe for wellness from the many ingredients available. We also strive to provide a community where those who are financially able can contribute to assist those less fortunate.
We base our methods on looking at the Koshic view of the human being. Treating health issues in all 5 layers of a person for a more holistic approach to optimal emotional well-being. People are often intimidated by yoga phrases and terminology, but it is quite simple. The five Kosha’s according to Vendentic philosophy are just one way of breaking down the layers of a person to help understand and find areas where one might be struggling. Breaking the layers down in this way can be an effective tool in locating problems that need to be addressed to find optimal physical, spiritual, mental and emotional well-being. Bee Happy Wellness seeks to help a person journey through the layers of the self in a safe and supportive environment so that people can follow their path to bringing these layers into balance.
At Bee Happy Wellness we provide many different forms of yoga and physical movement to help us explore our bodies. We also provide bodywork therapies such as massage and myofascial release treatment to help relax tension in the physical body and address areas of pain/physical trauma. At Bee Happy Wellness we provide meditation and breath work classes and workshops designed to help people find the tools to quiet the mind and assess imbalances.
At Bee Happy Wellness we provide classes and workshops to help people replace thought agitating habits with thought quieting habits. We teach the tools to help one become a witness of one’s thoughts in order to be less overwhelmed by them. At Bee Happy Wellness we provide a nurturing and safe environment and sense of community. Our goal is that through community and support you may better find connection to your truest self. “When meditation is mastered, the mind is unwavering like the flame of a candle in a windless place.” — Bhagavad Gita More information on the Kosha/layers of the self Bee Happy Wellness is not a religious organization but accepting of all spiritual and religious observances. We believe this is a deeply personal choice and strive to be respectful of such choices. Bee Happy Wellness is not a replacement for traditional medicine or therapies. We strive to complement such treatments in order to give an individual a more holistic approach to health. “Yoga and yoga theories/therapy do not need to replace western medicine, but we can find ways to have the different styles complement each other.”
