Two community workers who strongly believe that a healthy body and mind equates a healthy society have come together to create awareness about Mental Health Awareness Week that runs from September 23-29.
Neelu Taore, from the Art of Living Foundation who has been helping the community by conduction breathing and meditation techniques for more than a decade along with Peter Young Howick Local Board member who has been organising a host of well being classes throughout the week in Flat Bush—will be hosting a free yoga and meditation session at Ormiston Primary School on September 28 from 8-9am.
“As NZ has a very high rate of depression it helps to be aware of your emotions and learn how to handle them through your breath. You can use simple techniques at home to be more aware of yourself and feel happier at the same time with positive mindset,” she says.
“The foundation has helped millions of people all over the world to de-stress their lives and live happily and is one of the biggest volunteer-based organisation in more than 152 countries worldwide.”
On Saturday, September 28 from 8-9am at Ormiston Primary School, Flat Bush.
