Yoga & Wellbeing @ Work

Have you thought about Yoga for Wellness at work? I deliver Corporate Wellness sessions at away-days and team-building events as well as regular programs of four, six or eight-week duration, carefully crafted to va-va-vroom workplace vitality and productivity.

Contact me here for yoga at your team-building/special event or to book a 45 minute taster session.

According to the Health and Safety Executive millions of working days are lost every year due to back pain or stress-related illness and it’s been proven that one of the best solutions for stress and associated body tension is gentle movement, guided relaxation and efficient breathing.

Allow me to demonstrate an extremely accessible style of Yoga, which is enjoyable, varied, highly beneficial for mental and emotional health and suitable for all levels, from complete newbie to more experienced.

I’ve hosted group Yoga and Wellness sessions for a wide range of businesses, from Technology Procurement Consultants and IT firms to SEO/Marketing Agencies and Charities to High Street Retailers, including:

  • Properllernet SEO Marketing Agency;
  • PwC;
  • Aids Alliance;
  • Barnados;
  • Specsavers Opticians;
  • Long Tall Sally;
  • Boots HQ, Nottingham.
  • “As part of our corporate away-day we wanted to offer our teams different events to support the day. We asked Sarah to host a fun, all-abilities morning Yoga class and Sarah really delivered against our brief – not least being creative with a hotel meeting room to turn it into a relaxing environment. We all came away from the session feeling relaxed, energised and ready to start the day!” Kathryn, PwC.

    The proof is in the pudding!

    In September 2019 I hosted Yoga & Relaxation taster sessions at a Health and Wellness event for Boots UK in their Nottingham headquarters. I asked 15 participants how they felt before the 40 minute session, and how they felt afterwards. They transitioned from feeling stressed/a little bit stressed/ok to “feeling GREAT” after just 35 mins of gentle warm-up stretches, uplifting Dru Yoga sequences and Yoga poses, along with some mindful breathing and a mini guided relaxation.

    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 with good breathing, rest and relaxation.

    Corporate Yoga Packages:

The sessions incorporate elements of the program (below), and are a good starting point to gauge interest and to reward staff.

  • The Re-balancing Yoga/Wellness package: A progressive program (suggested time, between four 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.
