Our Gift to you – Yoga for Mental Health

Blog Article

This week is National Mental Health Awareness Week and Mother’s Day is quickly approaching. We miss you all and want to offer you (and mom) something that could help support you moving with purpose and positively impact your mental wellness. As a community of recovery, we are experiencing stress and uncertainties that we never expected. Fresh Start is committed to supporting you as part of our community in the best ways we can. Lisa Simone – our National Communications Director at Fresh Start – owns a yoga studio in Chippawa and we are bringing to YOU, and the rest of our Fresh Start community, free yoga classes!

Yoga is an excellent way to reduce stress especially in difficult times. We also thought this would be a special way to give a gift and say “Happy Mothers Day” for our alumni, friends, family, supporters, community partners and staff. This is one chance for Fresh Start to give back to you and on Sunday give a meaningful gift that might help Mom during isolation.

Research indicates that yoga can be an effective “prescription” for what ails us:

Yoga has many physical benefits AND is proven to:

– Reduce Anxiety
– Improve Sleep
– Improve Mood
– Decrease Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) symptoms
