Metuchen YMCA Begins Reset, Regroup, Renew Program

The Metuchen YMCA has begun a new program called Reset, Regroup, Renew, a 12-week program designed to provide a healthy outlet for adults in recovery from drug and alcohol abuse.  The program is open to members and non-members and is free for participants. In addition to meeting once a week for the guided program, all participants will receive a free membership to the Metuchen YMCA for the duration of the 12 weeks.  The program combines aspects of mindfulness like breath work and meditation with gentle yoga and other forms of physical movement.  A nutrition specialist, social worker and boxing instructor also provide services, creating a well-rounded healthy living program.

Robin Guensch, Adult Program Coordinator of the Metuchen YMCA, facilitates each week’s guided session.  Robin is a yoga and meditation instructor and is trained in Yoga of 12-Step Recovery.  “The goal of the Reset, Regroup, Renew program is to bring balance back to people’s lives through a healthy outlet”, said Robin. “The Y saw a community need for a program that delivers a mind-body-spirit connection for people in recovery and we are providing that for them.” 

The program is entering its second program cycle and has already garnered the praise of its participants.  Peter W. commended the program, saying “This is an excellent program (a gift!) and I feel blessed to have been invited to participate in it and I hope the program continues.” Kelly P. added, “I definitely consider this group as one of the tools in my recovery.”
