Mindfulness with YNPN RVA and Project Yoga

Project Yoga Richmond’s goal is to make yoga accessible and affordable to practitioners of all abilities. On Monday night, they led YNPN RVA in a facilitated mindfulness discussion followed by an interactive yoga session. PYR also gave a moment for individuals to do a self-care check-in which asked the following questions based on the past 24 hours of your life:

  1. Have you stretched and moved your body?
  2. Have you paused for a moment and taken 5 deep breaths?
  3. Did you sleep at least 7-8 hours last night?
  4. Have you spent time in nature?

Mindfulness is more than a “buzz-word”, it is a way of life that requires a lot of practice and welcomed intention. YNPN RVA’s challenge was to take a moment and set an intention around 1 of the 4 questions above. What will you take a few moments to do more of this week?

But what are some of these nonprofit professionals doing to create more of a work-life balance?
