Donna Mezzina is the face behind Brightface Wellness Foundation. Donna has been practicing yoga since 2001 and teaching since 2007. It was in 2008 that she became inspired by Seane Corn's "Off the Mat Into the World" initiative. The idea of combining yoga and selfless service, two things Donna is passionate about, was something she knew she wanted to be involved with.
Busy raising her family, it was several years later that Donna was able to take the first step towards bringing her intention into reality. Donna taught yoga at a fitness center within a local hospital and developed a yoga program for people affected with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). For two years, she taught Yoga for MS and saw first hand the healing powers yoga had on the members, and how it improved the quality of life for many.
In 2013, Donna founded Yoga Solace Club, bringing her long time vision of offering studio quality yoga at an affordable cost to the greater community. Using the Yoga Solace Club facility for fundraisers and help to conduct no cost wellness classes for those affected with health setbacks.
In early 2015, Brightface Wellness Foundation was incorporated as a nonprofit entity. Based in Monmouth County, NJ. Brightface raises funds by offering regularly scheduled donation based yoga classes, as well as hosting special events to raise the awareness of a cause. The funds are used to provide no cost therapeutic sessions and group wellness classes.
