Dr. Hansaji Jayadeva Yogendra: Yoga for Mental & Emotional Wellbeing (rescheduled session)

Zoom session. Sunday 26th July, 3pm (UK time)


Pujya Maa will speak on the subject of Yoga for Mental and Emotional Wellbeing. Keeping in mind the current situation around the world, Maa strongly feels that we must address the psychological effects of the pandemic and the consequent isolation. 


People have been trapped indoors for a very long time, either alone or with family or roommates. This creates feelings of loneliness and discord respectively. There is an overall air of fear and panic, so people are anxious. Coupled with the financial burdens that most of us find ourselves having to deal with, the situation has become the ideal breeding ground for mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety and panic attacks. Yoga has the solution for all these problems and by following few simple guidelines, we can experience optimum health - physical and mental.
