How We Can Help

Creative Arts & Movement

Learn more about alternative methods of rehabilitation by joining one of our creative arts or movement programs. Offerings include visual art, yoga, music, mindfulness, & a walking group!

Our Program Offerings

Music Therapy

Music, being common to all cultures, enables people to feel a sense of belonging, develop their personal identity, and express themselves creatively. Our music therapist, Carmen Eisenhauer, uses both musical and clinical interventions to help brain injury survivors improve, maintain, and restore an optimal state of well-being.

This program is hosted in-person on Mondays and Thursdays. See our Program Calendar for details!

Art Program

This therapeutic program offers clients the chance to explore the world of visual arts, learn to expand their creativity, and unleash their imagination. With an open-studio structure, participants are able to work on their own projects or receive guidance from our facilitator. No prior experience is neccessary and all supplies are provided.

Art is a drop-in program that runs bi-weekly on Tuesday evenings from 3:00 until 5:00 pm.

The Art Therapy program at VBIS is a wonderful opportunity to explore your creativity while making social connections in a relaxed environment. We work on a take-home project every session using a variety of mediums to promote cognitive rehabilitation, while sharing stories and having fun.

Gentle Yoga & Stretch

Relieve stress, build strength, and increase your flexibility. Our yoga program is intended to be enjoyed by people of all shapes, sizes, & abilities.

Outdoors Group

Enjoy some fresh air while exercising in a supportive environment alongside other brain injury survivors.


Learn and practice meditation with a group of brain injury survivors exploring the benefits of mindfulness.

Inspired by the immense potential for healing and transformation, I envisioned the creation of Gentle Yoga sessions within VBIS to cater specifically to individuals with unique needs in an inclusive environment.


By offering a gentle and accessible practice, Gentle Yoga empowers individuals with disability to embark on a compassionate journey of self-discovery, where soothing movements and mindful breath fosters inner peace, strength, wellness and resilience. Providing a safe and empowering space in nurturing their overall well-being.

Past Gentle Yoga & Stretch Instructor

In Mindfulness class you will practice different exercises that promote mindfulness such as journaling, meditation, goal-setting, and the benefits of nature. However, you will also learn why these exercises are beneficial and how to develop skills that will help you to continue to implement mindfulness into your everyday life. Mindfulness can be empowering to individuals as you claim back power over yourself and how you interpret your surroundings, something that, as expressed by participants, can feel difficult to do after a TBI.
