I love that one roof houses so many modalities: reiki, massage, counseling, nutrition, yoga, and even artistic work.
After signing up for the summer promotion for teachers, I have been attending yoga classes – paced perfectly. I didn’t experience “monkey brain” as I have in the past because they were stimulating, varied, and in tune with my needs.
The philosophy at Body Positive Works is clear – non-judgmental, supportive, and collaborative.
I am always searching for this type of place in my travels, but was happily surprised to find it right here in my own backyard! I love that two local women have created a community space with such potential and positive energy.”
