Yoga

“Yoga cultivates health and well-being (physical, emotional, mental & social) through the regular practice of a range of many different techniques, including postures and movement, breath awareness and breathing exercises, relaxation and concentration, self-inquiry and meditation. Yoga is an approach to life that values appropriate effort, based on balance and harmony, within each person & with each other”.
(Yoga Australia)

Since then Olivia has been working with Salvos Yoga to produced 5 online yoga sessions called ‘Restore’. In todays changing environment Restore may be just the tonic for people who are feeling isolated and disconnected. It offers each of us a chance to just stop, breathe, & refocus, as we face the challenges of each day.
