Explore the mind-body connection through yogic breathing techniques. Dr Marlene Teo will lead a slow yoga flow which will help release muscular tension that commonly builds up in dentists’ bodies. This session is supported by WIN (Women Implatology Network), so you can do yoga while doing your part for charity!
Many of us dentists are used to going to work; and may find this period where we have to stay at home very uncomfortable. Our minds may race from the (dis)quiet, anxieties may arise, and we may notice tension in our bodies that we have never noticed before. Join Dr Marlene Teo as she discusses the mind body connection and how we can calm our minds with some yogic breathing techniques. She will also lead a slow yoga flow which will help release muscular tension that commonly builds up in dentists' bodies. This is an introduction to basic yoga technique and modifications will be given for people who have never tried yoga before.
All you need is a:
1) Yoga or exercise mat
2) Yoga strap (or hand towel)
3) Yoga block (or 5 story books)
5) Curious attitude and an open mind.
We hope you will use this period to slow down and reconnect with yourself so we can emerge from this refreshed and rejuvenated from this lockdown period.
All proceeds will be donated to Project Nanhi Kali.
Anand Mahindra began Project Nanhi Kali at the K.C. Mahindra Education Trust in 1996 with the objective of providing quality education to underprivileged girls in India. Jointly managed by K.C. Mahindra Education Trust and Naandi Foundation since 2005, the project has transformed the lives of over 470,000 girls (called Nanhi Kalis) from economically and socially disadvantaged backgrounds, across 14 states.
With the aim of helping girls complete schooling, Project Nanhi Kali provides girls with 360-degree support including daily afterschool academic support and an annual school supplies kit (comprising of a school bag, stationery, pullover/raincoat and feminine hygiene material for secondary school girls) to enable them to attend school with dignity. The project has partnered with leading EdTech organization, Educational Initiatives, to provide every girl with access to a personalized, adaptive learning software called Mindspark. This AI powered software enables girls to learn English, Maths and their Local Language from Grade 1-10, and additionally Science from Grade 6-10. The software is pre-loaded onto digital tablets which are provided to the girls enrolled in the project, thereby allowing them access to quality education even in remote regions with poor connectivity. A professionally designed sports curriculum is also integrated into the programme to promote holistic development. Further, through regular engagements with parents and community stakeholders, the project creates conducive, girl-friendly ecosystems in underserved communities across India.
Aligned with UN Sustainable Development Goals 4&5 of Quality Education & Gender Equality, Project Nanhi Kali affirms that every girl is given the opportunity to learn and achieve her full potential. With daily academic support and care, the project strives to educate girls, enabling them to grow into empowered women.
