Be.’s yoga studio is aptly named BeYou, as the lead instructor Carey Sorenson believes that yoga provides a context and space for individuals to truly discover themselves, in many ways for the first time. When we meet and acknowledge ourselves on the mat transformation can happen. Yoga can be used to help the body unwind and unlock stagnant energy, rebalance and restore mind, body, and spirit incongruences, and help you experience deep relaxation and connection. Movement is an important aspect of wellbeing as it is our body’s way of processing experience. Be.’s yoga classes are designed to provide restorative and healing asanas, instructors that guide your personal journey by allowing the pose to be the teacher, and a strong focus on breathwork and mindfulness. Be. encourages each individual to move at their own pace and find their own rhythm. Mind, body, spirit are fully integrated in this thoughtful approach to yoga allowing for your authentic BEing to emerge.

From the moment I walked into BE. I felt immediate peace. My family and I had just suffered a devastating loss and were in need of something to help us through it. Carey and Erika guided us through a healing yoga session that soothed our minds and bodies. BE. provided a safe place for us to grieve and also to come together as a family. Carey and her team were beyond helpful, compassionate, and truly healing. The Fox Valley is lucky to have a place so incredibly special.
After the traumatic event our family went through, the yoga/healing experience at Be. was so special. The movements coinciding with Carey and Erika’s teachings/guidance taught me that getting through difficulties/discomfort in yoga-will translate into skills in the real world-like dealing with the grief and loss I was going through. The physical environment of BE. was a non-threatening and safe place-the physical structure gave off very warm energy. The natural light shining on me during the practice was amazing-and gave me warmth and peace (even in cold January!!). Also, the use of essential oils triggered various emotions, allowing me time to accept what I was feeling at the moment, and sit with it in a safe space with Carey, Erika, and my family present for support.
