Yoga at Work
Yoga Nest’s Corporate Wellness Programme brings yoga and meditation to your workplace. These classes are designed for every body so brand new yogi’s are more than welcome to give it a go. Bringing co-workers and peers together for a yoga class is a great opportunity to try something new, improve work-life balance and increase productivity.
The created curriculum is an eight week course including one class per week but can be tailored for your needs. To encourage more employees to attend we recommend booking your yoga classes during lunchtime or immediately before or after work.
At the end of the eight weeks, the students will have learned foundational yoga poses and a variety of meditation techniques. We offer a variety of techniques so that each individual can explore which tool is most useful for them to help combat stress, anxiety and make that shift towards a more positive mental head space. Throughout the course we will assign “Home Care” so students can start to applying these practices and healthy habits into their day-to-day routines.
