Stress has the ability to rob us of our happiness.

In this session, Eric will also share how mindfulness has helped him as a young caregiver for his father who suffers from vascular dementia.

Thereafter, join Priscilla Tan, a caregiver to her father with dementia, as she shares her personal experience and the impact yoga has brought about in her journey.
