How Does it Work?

An open floor room is required where employees can attend a yoga class. No previous yoga experience is necessary, and all levels are welcome.

As a former engineer, I am a knowledgeable of working at a desk job, and that background provides me with the compassion and knowledge to tailor yoga classes that are truly effective for stressed out desk-bound employees. I work with each company to develop a class that meets the needs of any group size or ability level. Sessions may include gentle stretching and movement, flowing asana practice, relaxation and meditation, and breathing exercises. I also offer chair yoga classes.

Students can bring their own yoga mats. Corporate yoga sessions can be scheduled before work, at lunchtime, late afternoon, or after work. Classes are usually one hour and meet one to two times per week, and the duration of sessions are flexible. Whatever is most convenient for your staff members and company budget.
