If life is in danger
Beyond Blue 24/7 crisis support
Fortem Australia during business hours
First responder families, join us for a weekly Stretch and Breathe session to learn attentional control and connection to body, with focus on breath and easy movements. Each session involves a 60 minute class of guided breathing and stretching exercises. It’s a great chance to learn useful mindfulness techniques to support your wellbeing and build your mental fitness, as well as improving your physical agility. You can also spend time with your family or inner circle, developing close bonds as you learn. It’s also great to connect and socialise with other local first responder families. Developing close relationships and socialising with friends, family and others, is important to build your mental fitness and boost your wellbeing.
This free wellbeing activity is for first responder families (check out Who We Serve here). This class is designed for people of all ages and fitness levels. You will need to bring your own yoga mat. An eye pillow will be provided. Please notify the activities coordinator if you are prone to skin allergies.
All Fortem Wellbeing Activities are underpinned by the 5 Ways to Wellbeing: a set of practical lifestyle habits which contribute to our overall mental fitness. This model by our partners at The Royal Melbourne Hospital is based on widely researched, effective strategies for improving mental health and wellbeing, and forms the foundation of all Fortem Australia events, programs, and activities.
