Simply Blossoming 2.0 has been created to support young women ages 19-29 who are interested in exploring their own personal wellness, mind, body and spirit.
Led by two passionate and incredible women, Alannah and Corina, they bring the essence of the Simply Blossoming community to a new age group. Their vision is to create a space that is supportive and full of like-minded young women who can connect about things that are important to them while ensuring they stay true to their own visions.
Alannah’s goal for Simply Blossoming 2.0 is to create a positive and safe environment for everyone to feel welcome in, and to spread her knowledge of mindfulness. She would also love to teach how to use meditation to help combat mental illnesses. She also is striving to create an environment where young adults can try new things without judgment or criticism.
Corina has a passion for mindful living and self care. She hopes to bring awareness about the benefits of mindfulness to many different populations. Simply Blossoming 2.0 is one of these populations. Being in the age bracket of the target population has allowed her to adequately determine the needs and wants for the Simply Blossoming 2.0 community. In addition to this, her social work training and experience with mental health issues will allow her to create an open and inviting environment. Her goal is to help provide a safe space for the members to address any mental health issues as well as providing a fun supportive outlet for the individuals involved.
