Yoga for Mental Health - Parent & Child Richmond Fellowship HK

17 April 2021

Completed
The Richmond Fellowship of Hong Kong (RFHK) was established in 1984 as a non-profit making registered charity. It is affiliated to the Richmond Fellowship International, a world-wide network of self-governing non-profit organization which shares the common aim of promoting good community care practice in the field of mental health.
利民會於一九八四年在香港成立,為一間非牟利社會服務機構。利民會為國際利民會連繫會員機構。國際利民會總部設於英國,乃一世界性之連繫網絡。由分佈世界各地、抱有推動精神健康、社區照顧等共同目標之非牟利機構組成。
Yoga helps children and youth develop healthy responses to the chaotic world around them. It also helps them deal with their own emotional responses to the world. The idea is to encourage children & youth to use these techniques whenever they need to find calm, refocus their energy, and concentrate on specific tasks.
Andiappan Yoga Community (AYC) is pleased to partner with the Richmond Fellowship of Hong Kong in providing free yoga classes to the children and youth between 6-17 years old, and their parents.
This course will be focusing on group and partner yoga poses and sharing activities, parents & children learn how to support one another, both physically and emotionally. As a result, trust is built and bonds between parents and children are deepened.  Along with proper breathing, these poses also calm the mind and reduce stress, anxiety, depression, learning body awareness and memory supporting children & youth’s physical wellbeing.
瑜伽能協助兒童和青少年學習如何面對和應付當下世界及身邊發生的事情。 從練習中亦鼓勵他們應用瑜伽上的技巧,學懂隨時隨地保持情緒平靜,調整能量狀態和專注力集中。
AYC 很高興能與香港利民會合作,為6至17歲的兒童和青少年及其父母提供免費瑜伽課程。
此課程將通過小組和合作的瑜伽姿勢和分享活動,父母和孩子可以學習如何在身體和情感上互相支持。 從而建立了信任,加深了父母與孩子之間的感情交流。同時配合適當的呼吸法,讓頭腦平靜,減輕壓力,焦慮和沮喪,並且能學會留意身體意​​識以及增強記憶力,全面支援兒童和青少年身心健康。

I have completed 200-hours yoga teaching training in Anahata Yoga and experienced remarkable transformation in my life during the yoga practice. I love to help others thrive in live by nurturing body, mind and soul with yoga, and I  hope is that you step off the mat feeling refreshed, nourished and balanced.
