About the Event

Have you ever felt guilty over exercise? Or lack thereof? Ever wanted to let your inner child loose but felt guilty for playing and not working?

Adult society today can have a tendency to glorify work and can leave little room for play. But who says playtime is just for kids and playing can't also be working?

There is a growing body of evidence that suggests that humans respond to exercise presented as playful activities better, and the benefits of movement (both physical and mental) are well documented. So forget the guilt, let your inner child out and come experience the Power of Play!

Come join us on 28th February for a relaxing Tuesday evening for a mental health story sharing from Derek, Mind HK Ambassador and personal trainer, followed by a relaxing evening Power of Play movement class led by himself. Derek will share his lived experience with depression and his play based approach to maintaining his mental health in Hong Kong.

Tickets will be $100HKD with all proceeds going back to Mind HK's anti-stigma campaign. As spacing is limited, we will be contacting registered individuals to confirm attendance.

All levels are welcomed to join. Class will be conducted mostly in English with Cantonese when required. Registration is required.
