Free Yoga for Mental Health

Take a mental health break and join Yoga for mental health live in one of the 4 participating cities across Canada. The event supports mental health for all people in Canada.

Take a mental health break and join Yoga for mental health, live and in-person in one of 4 participating cities across Canada – London, Toronto, Regina and Winnipeg – over the lunch hour on Thursday, June 16. This event supports mental health for all people in Canada.

 

WHAT’S IT ABOUT

A recent survey revealed 35% of all people working in Canada reported experiencing burnout – with some professions, like nursing, reporting up to 66%.  

Workplace Strategies for Mental Health has always focused on helping employers and employees to reduce workplace stress and improve mental health. One way to do this is to take our breaks every day, and spend that time calming our minds and relaxing our bodies. Yoga has the potential to do this.

Master yoga instructors certified with YogaFit Canada will guide participants through a series of poses geared to relaxation. No prior knowledge or experience is required. As part of this event, Canada Life will donate $25 per participant, up to $15,000, to the Canadian Mental Health Association in support of mental health for all.

 

IMPORTANT DETAILS

  • The sessions will run from 12:15 to 12:45 p.m. local time, to give you time to get to and from work on your lunch hour. Plan to arrive close to noon to find a spot and get comfortable.
