Tight shoulders, stiff neck, feeling frazzled and realising you’ve not moved from your desk for hours? We’ve all been there!
After a decade working in the corporate world as an event producer in London, pulling long shifts in various hot desks I really do understand first hand the importance of staying healthy, keeping connected to the body and a taking a mental break. I’m here to share what I know.
Bring Yoga to your workforce!
With modern day living can come exhaustion, stress and anxiety . With the work environment being the place we spend most of our waking hours, making sure our physical and mental needs are met in this space is key to a healthy and happy life.
Yoga is not just about the poses. You don't need to be flexible or be able to balance on your head, just curious! Yoga is a union of mind and body using poses but also breath work, meditation, a gateway to more conscious and ethical ways of living and being. in the workplace can really help your team to

Types of class
Online and On-site
My desk yoga sessions are designed to counteract the effects of sitting - resetting posture and relieving tension in the shoulders, neck, back and hips. The class will also include some mindful focussed breathing and meditation to calm, refocus and recharge your team for the day or week ahead.
Your office/home office chair, no other equipment necessary!
Sometimes the best thing if you can allocate the time is to down tools and step away from the desk. Within a mat based class we work the full body head to toe in a more dynamic way building strength and flexibility. We focus here on the muscles that support the spine and head, areas that hold tension such as the wrists and wake up the areas that get sleepy from sitting!
A yoga mat (or sports mat, carpet or non slippy surface will do!)
A block or hardback book
Pre-recorded yoga videos
It's sometimes hard to find a time in everyone's diary or your virtual event schedule for a live class. I provide pre-recorded videos anything from a 5 minute meditation to a full 60 minute class. These work great as add ons to a wellness area on an event hosting platform.

A workshop can be a great way to engage your team or guests and delve deeper into a specific area of yoga. Examples of sessions are: yoga for stress, posture, for confidence, for sleep, self care practices or meditation. If there's something you think your team would enjoy and find interesting I can work together with you on building ideas.
A workshop can be provided as a virtual session or in-person session. Ideally the duration for a workshop should be from 1 - 2 hours. Props are dependent on the session content.
