Keeping Your Mind and Body Healthy
This week in Canada is Mental Illness Awareness Week 2020, it runs from Sunday the 3rd to Saturday the 10th of May. A great way to keep both your mind and body healthy is Yoga. Barrie has several Yoga Studios who have online lessons, tips and exercises you can do at home. Some of the benefits of Yoga include Improve flexibility, strength, and posture, Increase your energy, Reduce stress and much more. These days when we are isolating and the pressure or just boredom is impacting you this is a great way of helping.
We have listed a few Barrie Yoga Studios who are there to help you, they also need your help to continue to operate. We have listed schedules where we could find them, if not contact the individual studios directly. Contact details are provided, so take a look and see where you can start or carry on practicing yoga. Also, for the terms and conditions each studio has its own so check it out on the site.
Anahata has an “Our Pay It Forward Class” that is a community class offered for all. This is because Anahata Yoga comes from the Heart and grew from a place of wanting Yoga to be accessible to EVERYONE. No matter gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity or income. Everyone can use yoga in their life. Pay what you can. If you can afford a cup of coffee then you can afford a yoga class. And hey, if you can’t afford a class this week then it’s on us!
