yoga at work


Supporting the health and wellbeing of the people you work with or employ is key to the wellbeing of your business.  Mindful movement, breath, mindfulness and meditation support physical and positive mental health, as well as counter-acting stress and anxiety.  A more mindful approach to life promotes better self-awareness, a more grounded approach to life, with increased focus, mental concentration and increased emotional resilience.  If you’re healthier and happier, you’re more likely to be more effective at work.  There are some comments on the feedback page supporting this: have a look.
