Our online yoga classes are a gentle way to improve your posture and balance, as well as a great way to provide physical exercise and help to focus and relax a buys mind. Yoga practises breath control, relaxation, diet control, positive thinking and meditation aimed at developing harmony in the body, mind, and environment. It is a great tool and routine for veterans to help overcome or prevent mental illness.

Photos are a great way of sharing meaningful experiences with others. It’s also a great tool for mindfulness and teaches us to be present, observe and take in our surroundings and improve our awareness and presence in any given moment. We take you through photography basics with some of the best photographers of both film and digital and teach you how to capture those moments and improve your mental wellbeing through the art of photography.
