Mindfulness For Mental Health
Did you know that every year, one in five Canadians suffers from a mental health or addiction issue? We’re here to help. We offer no-cost six-month yoga passes to qualifying participants for participating local studios in order to spread the benefits of yoga to those who need them the most.
Blu Matter Project’s programming is based on the latest mental health research and includes no-cost six-month passes so participants can attend yoga classes at a local studio.
Research shows that a regular yoga practice for people living with mood disorders may significantly reduce anxiety, stabilize mental activity, enhance brain functioning, and improve sleep quality and resiliency to stress.
A Place to Belong
Attending a yoga studio consistently can provide a sense of structure, and as you get familiar with the teachers and the space, it can become a safe place to experience change.
The Support You Need
Studios and teachers are trained by Blu Matter Project to create a welcoming space; we offer online resources and local referrals to ensure you can source the help you need to manage your mental health in conjunction with your existing treatment plan.
