Even if we are stuck inside, we will still be able to practice some yoga at home while watching exercise on live streaming.
Yoga is a great practice for both the body and mind, it will help calm your nerves and boost your immunity. It offers peace and mindfulness to its lovers and helps them get through daily stress. Thus, the Be a Man Club in Kosovo together with its members and other young people practiced yoga together, not forgetting to keep themselves active in different ways – physically and virtually with each other.
Arbëresha started her session by greeting the young people and all those who were part of the live session on Facebook. She started by telling the importance of yoga exercises, how much it helps our mental and physical health, and how it frees us from daily stress. For almost an hour, Arbëresha together with the members of the Be a Man Club in Kosovo but also with young people from different countries practiced yoga together for beginners, emphasizing our mental health and using the time of isolation as something positive and which can contribute to our mental health if we take care of it.
This session was held by Arbëresha Maloku in Albanian and English so that anyone who wanted to join the session did not feel limited due to the language. Arbëresha Maloku has been practicing and studying yoga since 2013, becoming an inseparable part of her life ever since. She works as a yoga teacher at “Transformohu” and at “Me Jehonën” studio.
We all put on our most comfortable clothes and attended an online session and invited our friends!
Stay home & stay healthy,
