Life skills & Yoga

Chez Sara - Lifeskills & Yoga

The ‘Skills for life’ project of the World Health Organization (WHO, 1994) proposes to improve well-being and psycho-social health through the learning of skills (lifeskills) useful for managing emotions and social relationships.

Through Yoga we prepare our mind to know ourselves and our body better as to be ready to work on the life skills and become more aware and able to change habits, not only linked to the way of acting, but also to the way of thinking and approaching.

Each session will begin with a yoga practice with Gaia, at the end of which there will be a short 10-minute break, followed by a discussion of the lifeskill approached led by Dr. Barada - Pharmacologist specializing in addictions.

If you are ready to put yourself out there or simply want to gain more knowledge, we are waiting for you in a family atmosphere surrounded by the greenery of Florence, just a stone's throw away from the city center.

We meet every Wednesday from 6.30pm to 8pm starting from February 7 in via Susini, 22 Florence, 50125 (Viale Michelangelo area).

There is the possibility of participating to a single session or purchasing a monthly package.

Cost of a single session equal to €35
