help us empower and rejuvenate our local community

At Be Your Own Guru Wellness Center, we’re committed to providing free wellness classes to hardworking locals in Summit County, Colorado.

Our mission is to help relieve stress, improve mental health, and enhance overall well-being for our community members.

And we’re asking for your support¬†to help us expand this program.

how it works

We believe that individual wellness and collective wellness are closely interrelated. 

We know that members of our mountain community are stressed. Many are working multiple jobs in order to make ends meet. We want to provide a place where folks can take a deep breath.

In order to support that deep breath we offer a variety of wellness experiences, including:

  • Yoga: Improve flexibility, strength, and balance while reducing stress and anxiety.
  • Reiki: Experience the power of energy healing for relaxation and emotional well-being.
  • Acudetox ear acupuncture: Discover the benefits of acupuncture for stress relief, detoxification, and overall wellness.
  • Breathwork: Learn powerful breathing techniques to increase energy, clarity, and emotional balance.
  • Meditation: Cultivate mindfulness, inner peace, and self-awareness through guided meditation practices.

And we also understand that our services can sometimes be cost prohibitive, particularly for our local community who are already struggling to keep up with rising housing costs and other living expenses.

To date, if someone has said that cost was a prohibitive factor, we’ve simply invited them to come join us for free.

Now, we would like to expand this program and are asking for your help.

mountain town residents face unique challenges

Residents of tourism-based mountain towns, like Breckenridge, face a unique set of challenges that can significantly impact their well-being and quality of life. While the picturesque landscapes and thriving tourism industry can be appealing, many individuals leave their hometowns and support systems behind to pursue job opportunities in these towns, often resulting in feelings of isolation and lack of a close-knit community. The rising cost of living, which is particularly high in these areas, further exacerbates the strain on locals as they struggle to find affordable housing and manage the ever-increasing expenses. Moreover, seasonal fluctuations in employment and income can lead to financial instability and stress. Additionally, the influx of tourists can put pressure on local infrastructure and resources, leading to congestion, overcrowded public spaces, and increased environmental concerns.

Navigating these challenges requires resilience, adaptability, and a strong sense of community engagement to help maintain a balanced and fulfilling life for the residents of these beautiful, yet demanding mountain towns.

We are committed to helping out locals navigating these challenges, and you can help!
