When yoga and mindfulness comes together with exploring careers and employability with the wonderful young people of the DMU Gospel Choir - we have an evening of exploring goals, wellbeing and of course MUSIC :-)
We celebrated InterFaith Week in Leicester in our own unique way by partnering with the DMU Gospel Choir and DMU Mentor Baguisri Mandane.
Highlights the good work done by local faith, inter faith and faith-based groups and organisations
Draws new people into inter faith learning and cooperation
Enables greater interaction between people of different background
When exploring employability we focused on the importance of self awareness, picking yourself up in the face of failure through perseverance and determination and being ready to change and adapt.
We also spoke about the challenges we face and what can cause us stress whether we are at school, college, university or work. To help combat stress we discussed what it means to have a healthy mind as well as a healthy body. We then tried some breathing exercises and a sequence of yoga postures.
We received some wonderful feedback from Sister Ellah and the young people we worked with.
"Thank you so much for inspiring our young people. They were truly encouraged."
"One young person said she was so down after being told today she wouldn’t get good grades but the session inspired her and gave her hope. Once again thank you Baguiasri and Durgha"
"I express my gratitude to Ellah Kandi for organising tonight’s remarkable celebration of #InterFaithWeek. I was truly revitalised by the Apostolic symphony. Specials thanks also to Baguiasri and Durgha for your encouragement to persevere!"
Of course the night wasn’t complete without listening to the wonderful young people we worked with this evening sing away!
Thank you to Sister Ella for inviting us to join you - we are humbled by your feedback and absolutely had such a great time!
