MENS HEALTH FOR NOVEMBER AT THE VINE
Join Donna and Kate from The Yoga Vine along with very special guests Rob Gordon from Board Accord and Jo Milos from Complete Physiotherapy to celebrate and support MOVEMBER and Mens Physical and Mental Health.
The state of men’s health is in crisis. Men experience worse longer-term health than women and die on average six years earlier. Prostate cancer rates will double in the next 15 years. Three quarters of suicides are men. Poor mental health leads to half a million men taking their own life every year. That’s one every minute. And we want to help do something about it!
This Movember is a chance to get together with friends, mates and work colleagues and hear from two leaders in their fields of Mens Health. So join us at The Yoga Vine and bring your finest MO!
Our guest speaker Rob has more than 3 decades of experience in consulting, coaching and mentoring in the C Suite and the Boardroom. He regularly delivers talks on Workplace Stress and Resilience and presents topics on Boardroom Performance and Dynamics at conferences, universities and organisations in the not-for-profit realm. But Rob's real expertise lies in Mindfulness and Meditation, Coaching Psychology, Emotional Intelligence and Communication. Rob will deliver a half hour talk about the role of mindfulness and emotional intelligence in mens mental health, both personally and professionally.
Our second speaker Jo is an expert in Mens health, in particular Prostate Cancer Health. With more than 25 years of experience as a physiotherapist, Jo created PROST! a not for profit charity to raise funds and awareness for pelvic health for men. She presents at various medical conferences as an expert in this field and is currently delivering yoga classes at her clinic and The Yoga Vine that are specifically aimed at Mens Wellness. Not only does she run clinics in Carine, Palmyra and West Leederville, she is also currently completing her PhD on the quality of life in men following treatment for Prostate Cancer. Jo will share her knowledge and tips on pelvic health for early detection.
Donna and Kate have a collective 30 years experience in yoga and mindfulness and Kate will lead a short chair based stretch and mindfulness session to complete the morning.
