Find your ‘om’ @home – yoga session in your lounge room
Findings from a recent YouGov survey in Australia show that COVID-19 has caused a large amount of stress. The survey found that one in four Australian relationships are under strain, one in two people are feeling isolated and 57% are feeling stressed. Furthermore, 54% said restrictions due to COVID-19 were causing tension in their household. As a society, we’ve never experienced anything like COVID-19.
The Harvard Medical School said in its latest health guidelines that yoga, meditation and controlled breathing are “some tried and true ways to relax”, reduce stress and tension.
Danielle Begg has a background in Psychology and Yoga. As founder and CEO of ‘The Yoga Impact Charity’ she understands first-hand the effect that yoga has on people of all ages who have suffered from trauma.
Step into your most comfortable clothes (PJs are welcome) and join Danielle for a 15 min trauma and yoga chat followed by your very own 30 min Yoga class in your lounge room. You’ll enjoy a breath-centred evidence based yoga class that will improve both your physical and psychological health.
