Willow Haven Inspirational Spa

Willow Haven Inspirational Spa’s mission is to inspire cancer patients to fight and venture outside the box for support, inspiration, and to provide various activities geared to their needs. Our goal is to create a relaxing environment to get away from the routine treatments and medical surroundings and make a very difficult journey easier; by educating, pampering, and finding outlets for stress, anger, and emotional pain without any financial obligations. We also strive to assist people in remission adjusting back to normal life and endeavor to create a positive environment, to help people keep a positive attitude, and to obtain positive results.

Karma yoga (Sanskrit: कर्म योग), (also known as Buddhi Yoga) or the “discipline of action” is based on the teachings of the Bhagavad Gita, a sacred Sanskrit scripture of Hinduism. Of the four paths to realization, Karma Yoga is the science of achieving perfection in action. Selfless action and service to others are emphasized in this type of yoga. Karma Yoga is selfless service unto humanity. If you have a favorite charity, that you would like to see Be Yoga feature, please email Michelle Seymour, michelle@beyogaclt.com.

Willow Haven Inspirational Spa

Willow Haven Inspirational Spa’s mission is to inspire cancer patients to fight and venture outside the box for support, inspiration, and to provide various activities geared to their needs. Our goal is to create a relaxing environment to get away from the routine treatments and medical surroundings and make a very difficult journey easier; by educating, pampering, and finding outlets for stress, anger, and emotional pain without any financial obligations. We also strive to assist people in remission adjusting back to normal life and endeavor to create a positive environment, to help people keep a positive attitude, and to obtain positive results.

Our karma yoga program is a great way to spread love in our community and make a meaningful difference to those who need it most. Now that spring is here to stay and we’ve had a lot of rain, you may find yourself setting aside time for yard work, or planting flowers on an apartment balcony or patio. You might be making plans to enjoy the summer heat and vacation time. But what if you found yourself unexpectedly dealing with a major health crisis? Suddenly things would change in an instant. That’s exactly why we’re focused on helping a special karma partner for May and June – Willow Haven Inspirational Spa. This 501(c)3 organization founded in 2012 is a beautiful oasis based here in Charlotte and provides a positive environment for those struggling with serious medical concerns related to cancer.

The person with the vision for this amazing place is Brandy Billingsley. Her mother was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer. Brandy and her father were her mother’s caretakers. During this time Brandy thought it would be great to take her mother somewhere she could relax and have a massage. Brandy called around to different places and no place would take her mother because she had cancer. The seed was planted, and through the years Brandy developed the idea for a safe haven known today as Willow Haven Inspirational Spa. This spa is a relaxing environment for cancer patients and caretakers to get away from the routine treatments and medical surroundings. The organization helps to make a very difficult journey easier by educating, pampering, and finding outlets for stress, anger, and emotional pain without any financial obligations. There is also support available to assist people in remission adjusting back to normal life. The spa offers many services, such as oncology massage, reiki, yoga, art therapy, writing therapy, music therapy and cooking classes. There is a wig specialist on staff, relaxation and meditation rooms, and even a “man cave”!

Willow Haven Inspirational Spa has a powerful mission statement: “Our mission is to inspire cancer patients to fight and venture outside the box for support, inspiration, and to provide various activities geared to their needs.”  Be Yoga is honored to partner with this organization to help support this mission.
