Wellness in the Workplace
Movement – Yoga
Yoga proactively supports the wellbeing of employees, it not only improves health and fitness, but it increases a sense of overall wellbeing, happiness and contributes towards a positive working culture. Yoga teaches the virtues of accountability, focus, calmness and dedication; it has been shown to increases employee retention while decreasing sick leave, improving the health, engagement and happiness of the workplace.
Our classes deliver a beneficial escape from the desk, combining mindful movement, breathing and relaxation techniques. We create an ambient space with natural botanical aromas and soothing music.
Mindfulness / Meditation / Yoga Nidra
Mindfulness Meditation is a powerful tool that optimises the performance of the mind and trains the attention muscle. It provides effective strategies to calm the mind, manage stress, gain insight and clarity, increase focus, connection and energy.
The training teaches us to pause amid the constant inflow of stimuli and consciously decide how to react. We learn how to switch off autopilot so we can consciously act without reacting to our ingrained behaivour patterns.
Mindfulness is the perfect counterbalance to the digital age challenges; of information overload and constant distraction. These classes are from 30 minutes and up and can be held on the floor or in a chair.
Yoga Nidra is the practice of yogic sleep, a technique that guides you to the hypnagogic state, the transitional state of consciousness immediately before falling asleep. You are instructed to pass through stages of relaxation while keeping your mind awake and aware. You will be guided into a deep state of rest and relaxation – different from dreaming, in dreaming you have little or no awareness of your surroundings, in Yoga Nidra you are acutely aware of your awareness – and that is where the transformation happens. After just 20 minutes you can feel as though you’ve slept for hours.
A wellness coach can facilitate workshops and one-on-one coaching sessions to provide accessible pathways to create positive change – change from limiting imbedded habitual behaivours. Together we create a vision and goal setting action plan to help clients move forward by discovering their intrinsic motivation to be healthy. We provide a structure or framework and goal-setting a plan of accountability. The training teaches us to unravel the inner critic and use self-compassion as antidote to self-criticism.
If psychologically expectations are changed, then physiologically they can happen. This is a one-on-one activity, but can be fasciltated in a workshop setting.
Movement, Mindfulness and Mindset can be incorporated into a half or full day workshop at an event or conference.
We teach, and have taught at, a variety of corporate offices in Brisbane including Flight Centre Travel Group, Children’s Hospital QLD, Knight Frank commercial buildings, Westpac, Devote Digital, Matrix Transport and Unita Group.
