Many of us are again working and studying from home and spend a lot of time behind our computer screens to attend lessons or meetings. Sitting down for long periods on end, not enough activity, sore muscles and tired eyes are often-heard consequences. Short active breaks, however, give you energy, interrupt the passive sitting down periods, loosen your muscles and prevent stress.

Olympos offers one or two active breaks each working day.

What is an Active Break?
An Active Break is a 15-minute ‘energizer’ for anyone who is interested. It involves an online session of light stretching and fitness exercises, provided by one of our Olympos instructors.  The Active Break helps you to recharge your batteries, both mentally and physically. It can serve as an enjoyable break during a long day of working or studying or as a brisk start or end of your day in a relaxed setting! You can participate wearing your regular clothes thanks to the ‘no sweat’ exercises!

How to participate?
The lessons are broadcast live and for free on our Olympos YouTube channel at the timeslots announced below. The instructor cannot see you and the participants cannot see each other. You just have to go to the YouTube channel to join in. You can ask questions by using the chat tool. If you wish to stay informed about new lessons, please click on subscribe!
