Mindfulness

Research indicates short but regular mindfulness practice can lead to positive outcomes. However, keeping staff engaged in regular mindfulness practice and making time to do this can be challenging.

To promote staff engagement and motivation I can embed brief practices throughout the working day. For example, short mindfulness practices in the morning, at lunch time, at the start of meetings, before appraisals, presentations and other events.

Yoga

I can provide individualised yoga classes to meet the health and wellbeing needs of your team. Sessions can be tailored to fit around the working day and can take place on chairs or mats depending on the space. I can offer regular classes to support staff to maintain the benefits of practice.
