Yoga in the workplace
Many organisations and their employees are now experiencing the benefits of incorporating regular mind-body practices into the workplace.
A high-pressure environment, long hours spent sitting at a desk and challenging workloads can lead to problems such as back pain, stress and fatigue. Yoga and mindfulness based approaches can help to counteract these difficulties leading to higher levels of general well being.
Studies have indicated that yoga and mindfulness can bring about the following benefits in the workplace…
- Increased levels of calm and focus
- Improved resilience to stress
- Reduced back pain (associated with sitting for long hours)
- Better sleep quality
- Increased energy levels
- Greater self-confidence
- Improved psychological and emotional well being
- An increase in positive and cooperative behaviour
Curiously Calm provides workplace yoga classes for companies in the Berkshire and Buckinghamshire area. Classes can be held on site at convenient times such as lunchtime, so that they can be easily fitted into the working day. Please get in touch for further details.
Here's what my clients say about my corporate classes:
“I love going and look forward to Tuesday lunchtimes. Corinne is very patient and manages a class with mixed ability and experience effortlessly. I always feel better after the class, more relaxed and focused. I can see some really tangible benefits - I am a lot more flexible, and strong. I also find that the relaxation I get in the class helps my week. It is a very small part of my week where Corinne helps me to focus, but I think it makes a big difference to how I feel all week long.” Rachel, Procter & Gamble
"Corinne’s classes are a welcome relief from sitting at a desk all day. The classes are at lunchtime and always start on time so that people can fit them into their lunchtime break. I have experienced a definite increase in flexibility and core strength and my back feels much stronger and more flexible. I also like what the classes do for the mind and find them a great stress reliever. Corinne’s style is very calming." Liz Henderson, KPMG
