Small Acts of Kindness: Free Yoga Classes to those in need.
While COVID-19 affects all segments of society it is particularly detrimental to those in the most vulnerable situations; those who have mental health concerns, the elderly and isolated, anyone suffering from the effects of domestic abuse, frontline staff, marginalised groups, such as ethnic minority groups and those facing job and financial insecurity.
To coincide with Mental Health Awareness Week, which for 2020 is based around the theme of kindness, we would like to offer our help. Yoga can be beneficial to both physical and mental well-being, reduce anxiety, help you stay connected and offer a breathing space from a stressful situation.
Many of our wonderful BWY Teachers have offered to give a free weekly yoga class to anyone affected at this time. The classes will be livestreamed via Zoom and no previous experience in yoga is necessary. All you need is a screen (laptop or iPad are preferable) to partake in the class, loose comfortable clothing, some floor space and a mat if you have one.
Our Teachers would love to welcome you to one of their classes. We have over 50 different classes available weekly and a range of different styles to suit everybody.
Please have a look at the timetable linked below and if you are interested in any classes please email or call the teacher directly who will be able to give you the necessary information and get you booked on. Prior to the class you will need to complete a short health questionnaire which will be sent to you by the teacher. This is completely confidential and simply provides the teacher with information on any health concerns that they need to be aware of.
We have not put an end date to this initiative as we envisage that the need will be just as great in the aftermath of COVID-19 and that if a teacher is unable to continue we hope another will come along and step into that slot.
If you are having any issues contacting a teacher please email:firstname.lastname@example.org who will be able to help you.
We do hope you find these beneficial at this very difficult time
