We at Maitri Studio are very excited to be joining Ulster University (UU) to support a fundraising event for their Mind Your Mood campaign, providing mental wellbeing help and advice for students and staff across UU.
On Friday 3rd May, we ask if you can rise to the challenge of 108 sun salutations! And if that seems a bit too much, then make it teamwork and join a relay version of 6 people x 18 sun salutations each, or 3 people doing 36 rounds each, just do as many as you feel like...or sponsor us!!
Perhaps you've never tried yoga, or don't fancy the sun salutations? Then instead you can attend one of the free taster classes which will be held at each venue and held at 10.30-11.15am, 12.30-1.30pm and 4-5pm. Donations towards the Mind Your Mood cause gratefully accepted.
Both the challenge and the classes will be offered at all four campuses: Belfast, Jordanstown, Magee and Coleraine.
You need to register for both the 108 sun salutation challenge and the taster classes via the UU website https://www.ulster.ac.uk/mindyourmood/events/yoga

62% of students actively worry about their mental health, but less than 40% know where they can seek help and support or how they could help themselves or others. Mind your Mood is a student led initiative which addresses the ever growing need for mental health support for students. It helps support students at a ground level, through a range of sessions and interventions to try and help students at an early stage and raise awareness of mental illness. Every penny donated will be used towards helping students in this way, thank you.
