On March 10 2024, to commemorate International Women’s Day, the 5P Global Movement held a Yoga event with the theme “Unbroken Women: Embracing Strength, Resilience, and Inner Peace”. This event acknowledges the unique stressors women face and offers a holistic approach to empower them to navigate these challenges and thrive.

Attracting 100 participants, the yoga event, led by experienced instructor Ginita Dewi, proved to be a hit. With the theme “Inverted Backbend,” the yoga class generated excitement amongst participants. This session embodies how yoga serves as a powerful tool for stress management and women’s well-being. The combination of physical postures, mindful breathing, and meditation helps manage stress by: 

  • Calming the nervous system: Through focused breathing and relaxation techniques, yoga promotes a sense of calmness and reduces stress hormones. 
  • Enhancing mindfulness: Yoga nurtures awareness of thoughts and emotions, empowering women to gain control and manage overwhelming feelings. 
  • Building resilience: The physical practice strengthens the body and develops a sense of self-efficacy, increasing confidence and ability to navigate challenges. 
  • Creating community: Group yoga classes provide a supportive space for connection and shared experiences, fostering a sense of belonging and empowerment. 

Therefore, “Unbroken Women” integrates a stress management talk led by a female entrepreneur and a female psychologist, following a yoga session. This combined approach combines a stress management talk with a yoga session, equipping women with valuable tools and techniques to address stress, while emphasizing the positive impact of yoga on their physical and mental well-being.

For this activity, 5P successfully partnered with women’s communities in Jakarta, namely Sunday Flow, one of the largest Yoga communities in the city, and Her.Exercise, one of the 6 leading women-dominated sports clubs. Apart from that, the activity was also supported by several F&B and skincare brands, such as Low Calorie Ion Water Pocari, Lemonilo, YAVA, and ERHA Skin Care.

We thrive together for a brighter future! 5P Unbroken Women!
