Why Corporate Yoga?
Bringing Yoga classes to the workplace is a wonderful way to increase the well-being of employees, raise productivity and a stimulating fun way to improve morale. Corporate Yoga is onsite and convenient, fostering a continued practice. Yoga is a great way to begin the morning, to revitalize at mid-day and to de-stress at the end of the day.

About Our Classes
Hatha Yoga is a combination of techniques to create balance within the body, mind and spirit:
Physical postures (asanas) to strengthen muscles and create flexibility
Yogic breathing techniques (pranayama) to enrich the blood with oxygen, create calmness and control
Meditation to increase deep inner and outer awareness, increase concentration and energy, to relax and create a deeper sense of happiness and well-being.
Participants will become stronger, more flexible and will feel revitalized and relaxed at the end of each class. Levels can range from beginner to intermediate. The most popular class is the ALL LEVELS which accommodates a broad range of abilities.
Boardroom Yoga / Desk Yoga
Boardroom Yoga is a more gentle class designed for companies who do not have much space, as classes can be done standing or in chairs. It is also wonderful way to teach employees methods that they can take back to their desks. Participants can wear regular workplace clothing but are encouraged to wear loose fitting clothing for ease of movement.
Meditation will relax the body and calm the mind as well as increase awareness, focus and concentration. Creativity is stimulated, and the participant will leave with a more relaxed and content state of mind. Meditation has been shown to increase quality of life, lower blood pressure, reduce stress and much more. Classes are 45 minutes long, for all levels.
