East Bluff Community Center Hosts Vision Board Party to Help Mindfulness



PEORIA (25 NEWS) – The East Bluff Community Center is helping the community feel refreshed and have a vision for the New Year.

They hosted a Vision Board Party on Sunday, where about ten guests enjoyed yoga, mini massage sessions, a nutritious lunch and, of course, creating vision panels.

Yoga instructor Janie Backs said it was a day to help clients relieve stress and negative energy from 2021 and enter 2022 feeling empowered.

Backs said she also wants to make wellness and personal care accessible to the community.

“Yoga does a myriad of things, but it also helps you really integrate whatever you’re working out into your body,” Backs said.

“We can think of all things, we can see all things, but if we don’t integrate it into our physical body, then we don’t actually do it in the world,” she added.

Facilitator April Foster said the vision boards are about digging deep and reflecting on what the last year has brought and manifesting what they want for the future.

Foster said that after reflecting on her own, she hopes to leave the fear behind in 2021.

“So much has happened with the pandemic and then with crime and so much in our community right now that I don’t want to live in fear,” Foster said.

“The fear is startling, the fear keeps you from going forward and doing the things you want to do in life,” Foster added.

Backs is a yoga teacher at Soulside Healing Arts in Peoria.

She said anyone who missed the vision group yoga session can go to Soulside’s website to register.
