Special Projects & Initiatives

Let's make waves


Overcome! Anxiety

Online Program Offered in Affiliation with The Overcome Anxiety Project

Designed for those who experience anxiety, whether situational or long-term/chronic, the Overcome! program threads together neuroscience, body-based (somatic) approaches to mental health, mindfulness practices, and simple lifestyle changes to provide you with an evidence-based protocol that will help you take back control of your lived experience.

FBW Scholarship Fund & Accessibility Initiative

Our Commitment to Making Wellness Inclusive

Nancy provides need-based scholarships for the Overcome Anxiety Clinic, as well as her online yoga therapy programs. We recognize that holistic healing is often exclusionary and are committed to not only keeping this work financially accessible, but also educating other wellness professionals about ways they can sustainably do the same.

Wellness Professionals Workbook

Sustainable Marketing Strategies for Wellness Professionals

It can be difficult to make ends meet when you insist on living in alignment with your value systems. Finding sustainable solutions for doing what you love without having to become someone you don't is what the Wellness Professionals Workbook is all about!

Thrifting for Wellness

Educational Resources for Yoga Teachers
