Yoga trains employees to become more aware of their own physical and mental state and this increased awareness can help them to change the way they respond to stress and anxiety. They learn to focus their minds more effectively so they can concentrate on the task at hand – a vitally useful skill to have in a fast-paced workplace where multitasking is a way of life.
Our experienced Thrive at Work instructors can bring yoga to your office, offering a multitude of mental and physical benefits to your employees.
Why Office Yoga?
Office Yoga is the perfect antidote to workday stress and postural / muscular problems that can arise due to long hours spent at a desk.
It is a great choice for anyone wishing to feel energised and refreshed during his or her work day, both physically and mentally.
Unlike standard yoga lessons, our classes are designed to address the specific physical and mental challenges that desk workers tend to encounter.
What to expect
Our one hour-long classes begin by slowly warming up the muscles, then gradually build up to a series of postures that work to release energy throughout the body and bring focus to the mind.
Classes are open to all levels, including complete beginners, as the intensity of the class will be adapted to the level of the participants and the needs of the group. So whether it’s a gentle relaxation class or an high-energy challenge that you require, we can create a class that suits you.
Our instructors are all highly skilled, fully qualified and are experienced / comfortable within a corporate environment.
