the MindBody Centering Yoga (MBCY) Method

Even though nina be's work with movement, wisdom, wellness & community now lives under the umbrella of centering.life, all yoga offerings remain true to the MindBody Centering Yoga (MBCY) Method beloved from its roots in Durham, North Carolina to all around the world where its impacts continue positively reverberating through trauma-informed yoga practice & lifestyle.

MBCY is the cutting-edge yoga technique that awakens the innate intelligence of the body/mind into its full potential.

It was developed in 1979 as experienced guidance in Self-Mastery, using researched techniques in creative movement, ballet, hatha/raja yoga, neuroscience, alexander technique, music, chakra study, somatics, trauma resolution, psychology, ritual and applied mindfulness as taught by Thich Nhat Hanh.
