Santosha Yoga Projects
Chair Yoga – Mind Australia
A half hour chair yoga session was introduced at the offices of Mind Australia. Workers gathered on a Wednesday morning before work to practice chair yoga, mindful breathing and relaxation. The donations received from this class funded a self-care lottery which meant that all money raised was used to purchase a prise for one of the attendees of the 6-week course.
The project cost nothing for the organization to implement and staff reported a greater sense of wellbeing at work due to the availability of the classes, which were avaialble to all ages and abilities.
