Owner and entrepreneur, Bill Reece, celebrated the grand opening of Sender Wellness, located in the heart of downtown Marion in October 2018. The business centers on improving the health and wellness of our community through a variety of avenues. Currently, it provides yoga classes and yoga teacher training programs by offering 18 yoga classes throughout the week, with plans to increase the number to 20 to 25 classes by early summer. Jessy Pearson-Cheney, Sender Wellness’ in-house yogi is certified in administering Yoga for the 12 Step Recovery Program. She will begin working with recovering addicts by helping them learn mindfulness and centering techniques. Did you know that after 12 months of participation in a mindfulness program, those in addiction recovery have a decreased relapse rate of 10 percent? What a benefit to those in our community who have been affected by addiction!
Additionally, holistic services such as acupuncture and massage therapy will assist patrons with pain management, cancer treatment recovery, and other ailments. In April, Café Rincon and the co-working space will open. The café is a coffee shop specializing in Brazilian coffee and will offer light vegan and vegetarian food options, with the produce being provided by Reece’s local hydroponic farm. The co-working space will provide 75 to 100 seats, including monthly free yoga classes and coffee. Access to the Sender Wellness Speaker Series, which will focus on for-profit business interests, will also be included in the co-working space membership.
Reece chose Downtown Marion to house his businesses because it made sense both from a financial aspect and for the great need for the services within our community. The presence of Sender Wellness will improve the quality of life of its patrons, and it is an asset to Marion.
