During the 1980s, the United Nations began to focus their attention on family issues.
In 1993, the UN General Assembly decided in a resolution that May 15 of each year should be celebrated as International Family Day. This day provides an opportunity to promote awareness of family issues and to increase the knowledge of socioeconomic policies affecting families.
The 2020 COVID-19 pandemic highlights the importance of investing in social policies that protect the most vulnerable individuals and families. It is the families who bear the burden of the crisis, protecting their members from harm, caring for children outside school and, at the same time, continuing their work responsibilities.
Never like this year we celebrate World Family Day in an unusual way because we are spending more time at home due to the coronavirus pandemic. Many parents work from home, their children don’t go to school and don’t do any extracurricular activities. Managing space in this forced cohabitation may not always be as easy as organizing children’s leisure time. But at the same time it can also be a good opportunity to share a few hours and do activities together.
Gotta Joga can help us in this situation as with its multitude of courses, many of which are suitable for beginners, it allows the whole family to practice yoga together.
This is the reason why we, at Gotta Joga, would like to launch a photo contest involving our followers asking them to share by the end of May on Instagram (tagging @gottajoga) a creative and original image taken while practicing yoga in the family using the Gotta Joga app. Among all the images we’ll receive, we’ll select the 2 most beautiful and creative ones and offer a free subscription for 6 months that will make it even more attractive for the whole family to practice yoga together trying new courses.
Ready to participate?
