Chill out Yoga

To help you stretch, relax and de-stress, LTSU has teamed up with local legends Good Vibes Yoga to run this free 45 minute Keep It Mellow flow weekly class.

The class will be live-streamed on Youtube at 5:45 p.m. on Wednesdays (Don’t worry, if that time doesn’t suit, you can catch up afterwards).

Mindful Minutes & Mindfullness Meditation

La Trobe University are hosting this FREE six week program. You’ll need a quiet, comfortable space were you won’t be interrupted, and access to Zoom. Learn the basics of mindfulness and how to use mindful meditation to calm the body and mind with La Trobe’s own Janine Stewart, an experienced senior counsellor in Bendigo. Stay up-to-date and find links to each session in the Facebook event.

Trivia (AND THEATRE) Thursday

Challenge your friends, win prizes and feel #togetherathome.

Join our favourite trivia host Disco Dave, as he streams his fun vibes, dog banter and tantalising questions straight from his home to yours. Get involved in the chat, keep your eyes on the prize… and no cheating thanks. This is a friendly game.

LTSU will be live streaming via the Facebook event at 7 p.m.

The winner (who gets the most correct answers in the quickest time) will receive a $50 voucher for their choosing (options include Coles, Woolworths, DoorDash, UberEats and Deliveroo).
