Yoga classes or workshops in a business setting are becoming increasingly popular. I create packages for businesses to suit their needs and those of their employees. Here are some options, though I aim to create bespoke packages for the majority of clients:
1-1.5 HOUR WEEKLY CLASSES
3 HOUR WORKSHOP
FULL DAY WORKSHOPS OR TEACHING ON RETREAT/WELLBEING WEEKENDS
How can yoga benefit your business?
The World Health Organisation has described 'Stress' as the epidemic of the 21st Century. So how can teams remain productive, yet also have a toolkit of ways to look after their own wellbeing on a personal level?
Yoga and meditation have been around for thousands of years, yet have become extremely popular recently, perhaps due to the increasingly fast paced lives that many of us lead and technological advances that mean we have little complete downtime.
Regular practice of yoga can provide a range of benefits both physically and mentally. Often what we do in our day to day lives and the positions we spend the majority of the day in (e.g. sitting at a desk) can be causing long term damage to our bodies. Gentle movement through yoga can be key to keeping the body open and can help us avoid some common physical issues such as backache, as well as lowering blood pressure and keeping bones strong.
Yoga empowers us to be able to positively alter our own body chemistry by helping us to calm our central nervous system and positively affect the primitive limbic system and vagal systems, which help control our stress response. Many studies show yoga relieves the symptoms of stress, anxiety or depression.
We’ll also look at how yoga helps influence the hormones of the body – elevating levels of the ‘happy’ hormones serotonin and oxytocin, and lowering stress hormones.
My courses weave in scientifically proven theory so groups understand WHY yoga can benefit them both psychologically and physically. This is alongside the very practical elements of offering a variety of techniques which help focus and calm the mind.
