Yoga & Wellbeing @ Work

Corporate Yoga programs

Are you seeking a creative and long term solution to reduce workplace stress, back pain and absenteeism? Have you considered a Yoga and Well-being program? The Health and Safety Executive say that millions of working days are lost every year due to back pain or stress-related illness.

I’m taking bookings for TASTER SESSIONS during Mental Health Awareness Week (Monday 13 – Friday 17 May 2019). Contact me to schedule your forty-five to 50 minute Yoga & Relaxation taster session at lunchtime, or pre/post working day in the Brighton and Hove area and I’ll demonstrate that Yoga can be for “everybody” (#yogaforall) and offers an enjoyable, natural and holistic support in your workplace.

Prevention is better than cure

After studies at Bangor University an eight week Dru Yoga programme involving gentle movements, stretching, breathing and relaxation was piloted within the NHS in north Wales, and First Group (Virgin) trains. Employees on the yoga program reported feeling significantly less anxious, confused, depressed and tired, compared to those not on the program.

The great thing about Dru Yoga is that it’s so accessible and enjoyable for all ages, all bodies, abilities and levels of experience. Not to mention, extremely safe, with input from osteopaths, and physiotherapists.

Here are some of the benefits of my Yoga Well-being Programs:

– boosted immunity and vitality;
– improved focus, concentration and sleep (essential for a productive day’s work);
– a mobilised spine to alleviate back pain and improve posture, motivation and creativity;
– a support for mental health and stress eg reduced anxiety, SAD and depression;
– increased resilience to manage challenges via the practice of “Savasana” (good breathing/rest/relaxation).

Corporate Yoga Packages:

  • The Rebalancing Yoga/Wellness package: A progressive program (between six to eight weeks), giving participants direct access to very accessible, take-away (and enjoyable) Yoga and Relaxation techniques as a toolkit for life. Sessions provide a good stretch to the physical body, along with Yoga poses and breathing techniques to help with specific conditions, eg, to relieve anxiety/depression or boost motivation and vitality and finish with guided meditative/relaxation (mini Yoga Nidra) to reset/recharge the nervous system.
    Duration: Up to one hour, ideally 45-50 minutes at lunchtime or one hour pre/post working day.
    Group numbers: Up to 15 max.
    Yoga mats: I can arrange to have a set of mats delivered to your premises for your ongoing use, and to promote the integration of Yoga and Mindfulness practices into the working day.
  • Corporate Wellness sessions: A stand-alone, or booster sessions spread over the year, of up to one hour and 15 minute duration. Ideal as an offering during a Corporate Wellness or Mental Health Awareness Week. The sessions incorporate elements of the above program and are a good starting point to test the water/gauge interest.
    Duration: 60 or 75 minute sessions at a suitable time during the day.
    Group numbers: Up to 15 max.
    Yoga mats: I can arrange to have a set of mats delivered to your premises for your ongoing use, and to promote the integration of Yoga and Mindfulness practices into the working day. Alternatively, I can arrange the hire of Yoga Mats for the single session.
