Off Mats; On Chairs

Maya Chebaro

Acknowledging the interdependence between physical and mental well-being, the Ras Beirut Middle School Counselor Ms. Diala Itani invited yoga instructor Ms. Imane Khozam to conduct some yoga sequences with teachers to help with stress management. Ms. Khozam introduced the teachers to chair yoga and provided them with a range of poses for them to easily practice at home or in an office setting. The session aimed at helping participants synchronize their breathing with certain movements that help them relieve stress.
