Thank you from Nimbleback and The Beam Team!
After a long day, many front-line workers are looking for ways to relax or release their tension.
Nimbleback is here to help. They are giving away their Beam exercise tool.
A Beam is a foam yoga-style tool designed to release, relax and restore the core.
Nimbleback was founded by Becky Goulet and Christa Geddes nearly six years ago. Both had been involved in automobile accidents and had suffered from back pain ever since.
There wasn’t anything they could find that was helping them out.
Goulet said Geddes, who resides in Calgary, found success using a foam tool during yoga.
After trying it out for herself, Goulet said, she loved it but couldn’t find anything similar for sale.
That led to the creation of the product which has been featured on The Shopping Channel.
Goulet, co-founder and chief marketing director for Nimbleback, said the company had a bunch of product from the factory without logos and they decided to give them away free to front-line workers.
Included with the Beam is an instructional video prepared by Tania Mercuri of Paddle Life and Yoga.
The video will have tips for relaxing with the Beam and using it for core work as well. Mercuri has taught yoga for more than nine years. She uses the Beam while teaching yoga.
“It’s great for finding a restorative, relaxing posture,” she said.
Mercuri said she was glad she could work with Goulet to help front-line workers. She said she hopes this helps some of them to relax.
Goulet said she was looking for a way to give back to the community and saw her chance to help.
“I feel better when I’m helping,” she said. “Being stuck at home where I can’t help is killing me.”
With many physiotherapists or chiropractors closed and people unable to get massages, there are many people who could use some help.
