About this talk
Even before COVID-19, mental health issues were an international problem. However, the current pandemic has amplified this, leading to an unprecedented crisis. Specifically, the influence of social distancing and isolation have led to unique mental health complications that are likely to have long-reaching effects. During this international presentation, Heather Mason will discuss the current mental health crisis, why yoga is efficacious in mental health management, and discuss particular ways that yoga can support personal and public mental health recovery resulting from the pandemic.
