In recognition of Mental Health Month, many took part in a special virtual donation yoga class hosted by Barbara Dunn.
The 60-minute Vinyasa Flow class had an emphasis on the close connection between breath, movement and meditation. Barbara is a RYT-200 yoga instructor and is working on the RYT-500 certification at Kripalu.
Proceeds from this donation class went towards MHA.
Your yoga practice helped to provide a pathway to recovery and resilience.

By now, many of us may be familiar with the usual advice for weathering the stress and challenges of anxiety-provoking situations. Maintaining your usual routines, taking care of your health, eating well and exercising, staying informed yet not drowning in news and social media feeds, connecting with friends, family and activities that nourish you emotionally... These activities are all more important than ever, yet they may be unavailable to us in ways we are used to.
