Yoga for Brain Injury is a WIN-WIN !

Not only is yoga good for you, it can help others! Would you like a tax-deductible, in-office or in-home yoga class for your staff, family or friends?
Doreen Grasso, Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT 200), and brain injury survivor, can offer one-hour virtual zoom yoga classes to individuals or groups. For a $100 donation to BIARI, the Brain Injury Association of Rhode Island, your group, large or small can enjoy the benefits of yoga. Whether you prefer a private practice at home or want to gather a group of co-workers or friends for a fun, interactive class, this is a way to do so while also supporting a worthy cause.

Yoga not only improves strength, stability and flexibility to the physical body, it also reduces stress while improving mood and productivity. What a gift that would be for your employees, co-workers, friends or family to enjoy together! Classes can be tailored to various levels of practice to fit your needs. Contact Doreen at BIARI, doreen@biari.org or 401-228-3319, to inquire about a class (or two, or more) for your group. Act now, as space/times will be limited. Promotional offers are available to corporate participants.

Let’s share the joy of escaping into mindfulness & moving meditation.

Join us for a FREE virtual yoga session on Friday November 27 at 10:00AM.

This gentle & basic yoga class is just what you need as the holiday season begins! Feel the connection of community with others at a time when we can feel more separated than ever. All you need is a quiet spot in a warm room, some loose, comfy clothes, bare feet, and a way to connect to Zoom.

HOW DO I SIGN UP? Send your email RSVP at ciaodoreen1@hotmail.com. You will receive a reply with the zoom invite. Please try to join the zoom class between 9:50-10 AM, so we can start on time. You do not need to put your camera on, if you would prefer not to be seen. NOTE: Due to the nature of teaching virtual yoga classes, it’s challenging to see everyone’s postures in detail, making individual correction cues almost impossible. By joining this class, you agree to be responsible for your own body awareness and to remain within your individual limits.


Our offices remain closed to the public however staff will be available by email or phone each day (401-228-3319)
to ensure the needs of those we serve are being met while protecting the safety of our staff members.
In the event of an emergency during non-office hours Richard can be reached at 401-368-8917.
We have created an online Facebook support group and you can join here. Remember to follow the rules and be kind!
We recognize that it is critical to our emotional well-being to have access to others with similar concerns.
Please stay safe and we look forward to getting through this crisis and rescheduling our conference and customary support groups!
