Connecting Isolated Students through Online Yoga Classes



04 / 02 / 21

The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has thrown up many risks to our health and wellbeing. The Fitness, Faith & Feeling Good festival, a project by the Faith & Belief Forum and Maccabi GB, is exploring a range of approaches to looking after ourselves at home during these challenging times, showcased by diverse partners from across London


One organisation taking part in the festival is the National Hindu Students’ Forum UK (NHSF UK). Founded in 1991, the National Hindu Student’s Forum works in over 50 universities across the country, reaching over 10,000 students, providing education on Hindu and dhramic values and ideas.

They run workshops and classes on various subjects, and a London Zone & South Zone Sports Competition. During the pandemic NHSF UK has moved many of their activities online. This includes running fitness classes and Hindu teaching workshops online, such as their “Yogasanga of the Week” and “Sanskrit Word of the Month” video series.

As part of Fitness, Faith & Feeling Good, NHSF UK will run a yoga and meditation session. The aim is for those taking part to leave the session feeling physically and mentally stronger, and with a deeper understanding of the history of yoga and meditation.
