Blue Ridge Institute: BRI

Last Year,  Danielle Rottenberg was invited to lead yoga and wellness classes for the Blue Ridge Institute Members. There are over 200 CEO’s, Directors and Executive Directors who attend this annual conference located in the Blue Ridge Mountains. She was asked to come back again this year to do much of the same and offer great techniques to help de-stress and rejuvenate. How exciting!

The Blue Ridge Institute (BRI) has been meeting every summer since 1927! They have a long-standing history of supporting, renewing, and fostering leadership within the community. With such leaders representing United Way, Evergreen Life Services, Allegany Franciscan Ministries, this is a wonderful opportunity for Danielle to give back to these fabulous nonprofit organizations.

By design, BRI is unlike most professional development conferences. Held in a beautiful and bucolic mountain setting – away from the hustle and bustle of the working world – they find time to focus on new perspectives and renew our inner reserves.

Thought-provoking professional development sessions each day lead into afternoons and evenings that offer a variety of optional activities from canoeing, hiking, and cookouts to softball and dancing. Many participants choose to spend their time more quietly: relaxing, reading, or discussing the day’s presentation with new colleagues and long-time friends.

Danielle does this pro-bono as part of The Yoga Service Movement’s mission!!
