On March 8, over 250 members of the Defence Team and thousands of Internet users took part in Exercise YOGA 2017 at various locations in Quebec to highlight International Women’s Day and women’s exceptional contribution to the Defence Team.

Initiated by the D+ Diversity Committee, this teleconference event, live-streamed on the Canadian Army’s Facebook page, consisted of a yoga session for all Defence Team members— women and men, civilian and military personnel, regardless of age or physical condition, in order to be as inclusive as possible. So that more people could take part in this activity during the school break, children accompanied by adults were also welcome.

According to the initial figures, Exercise YOGA was live-streamed by over 9000 Internet users, reached over 70 000 people via social media and was “liked” as far away as the United States, Mexico, the West Indies, and India. Tune in on March 8, 2018 to make a difference by participating in Exercise Yoga 2018!
