What you’ll do

During this time of quarantine, domestic violence cases are rising, crisis hotlines are seeing an increase in volume, and centers are at capacity. Movement restrictions aimed to stop the spread of the coronavirus are making violence in homes more frequent, more severe, and more dangerous. Prior to the pandemic, the nonprofit had been holding in-person programs and yoga sessions to its participants. To remedy this, they have needed to bring their trauma-informed classes online.

You can support their critical work while enhancing the wellbeing of your organization by offering a 45-minute online chair yoga session to your team. 

The session, given in the organization's methodology, will help attendees to connect with their body and breath. Through this slow-paced practice, they will tap into inner calm and resilience that will serve them throughout the rest of their week.
