Peace of Minds Yoga is a fun day full of yoga classes, mental health presentations and group meditation.
Fundraising proceeds from Peace of Minds Yoga support the innovative programs and services
of the Schizophrenia Society of Ontario (SSO).
This year the Oakville and Hamilton communities welcomed over 100 people to participate in Peace of Minds Yoga in February and March. Participants stretched and moved under the direction of volunteer yoga teachers who are all from local studios.
A healthy lunch of wraps and salads were provided courtesy of Farm Boy and in the afternoon, speakers with lived experience shared moving stories of their recovery journey. Peace of Minds Yoga not only raises awareness about mental illness, it also raises funds to support people and families impacted by mental illness: we are so grateful for this year’s generous support, totaling more than $16,000. This is truly a community event and we thank all who supported and took part.
We look forward to Peace of Minds 2020!
