Body Mind Circle Offers Free Yoga, Massage and Meditation for Crisis
People experiencing crises can be treated to a free massage or yoga session at Body Mind Circle Holistic Healing Center, in Circle Pines, thanks to a fund established solely for this purpose. In addition, people battling cancer can receive three free massages or meditation training.
Co-owner Hiyala Indiga says the Karma Fund was started 10 years ago when Body Mind Circle first opened. She explains that people are often drawn to yoga and massage at times of crisis in their lives. Yet many can’t afford such luxuries during a crisis, which is unfortunate, as these modalities can help the healing process. “When the nervous system is calm, people heal faster,” says Indiga.
Through the generosity of many people, Body Mind Circle is able to offer the Karma Fund. A cow-shaped bank in the entryway invites customers to toss in any amount of money, including loose change, which is added to the fund. There is a short application form for each recipient to complete.
In addition, Indiga also offers three free massages or meditation training to people who are battling cancer. These sessions are offered through the Neighbor to Neighbor program at the Virginia Piper Cancer Institute of Unity Hospital, in Fridley.
