The Filipino Planning Engineers Association (FPEA), through the Committee on Social and Sports Development (CoSSD), organised a kick-off session recently with free yoga classes for distressed workers temporarily staying at the Philippine embassy shelter.
The yoga session, which was led by certified yoga instructor Victoria Angelica, was attended by 20 women from the shelter, as well as FPEA president Susana O Nacario, second vice-president Aurora M Asda, CoSSD chairwoman Vanessa P Gallego, and its members.
The programme was approved and appreciated by the Philippine embassy, particularly Labour Attache Adam Musa. He was delighted with FPEA’s initiative to promote physical and mental wellbeing through the techniques of meditation, movement, and breathing that is said to have a long-lasting health benefit.
With the series of sporting events by FPEA, it is the advocacy of the organisation to inspire its members to be physically active and to maintain good mental health which promotes greater productivity at work. The first session was well received by the ladies and provided great feedback on the benefits of yoga to their body and to look forward to the second session.
