Join Micki as she discusses Kindness, one of the 5 Yamas of Yoga followed by a gentle flow.
Micki will be leading a discussion on mental health, how kindness plays a role and how yogis have believed this to be a leading principle for thousands of years. As a yoga practitioners or yoga curious, you might have heard of the Yamas, our ethical principles. We will look into how the Yamas help us to lead a kinder, more gentle life towards ourselves and towards others.
“Kindness strengthens relationships, develops community and deepens solidarity. It is a cornerstone of our individual and collective mental health.” – Mark Roland, Mental Health Foundation’s Chief Executive
In addition to the talk there will be a 45 minute yoga flow afterwards. Be prepared to take notes, ask questions and flow together.
We believe in moving your body in a way that makes you FEEL great. We set out to disrupt the fitness industry by focusing on movement for mental health over aesthetics and bringing the FUN into fitness. The theme for this Mental Health Awareness week is Kindness. We’ve scheduled workshops across the week aimed to help you be kind to your mind, body and others around you. £4 from every booking is going to the charity Mind who are ensuring no one has to face a mental health problem alone.
