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.
