Office Wellness Programs

Yoga, Meditation and other wellness programs have been around for thousands years; helping people see the world around them more clearly. In the last 50 years Western Science has been witnessing that yoga, meditation and other programs can lower injuries, decrease stress, offer better sleep, help with depression and boost company moral. Doesn’t that sound like something needed in the work place?

Some employers still view health and wellness programs as a perk or benefit, but that has been shifting over the past 10 years.  Preventative methods are now seen as a value to the workplace.  Many employers have experienced the cost benefit to their bottom line by offering programs that keep employees healthy, happy and inspire ideas.  Just think of how much your company will save as many employees think clearer, are happier and less sick.  Productivity increases, health care costs are reduced and there is less turnover. Not to mention if an employer offers a wellness program they can inform their health insurance company and receive financial incentives back – saving money.

What I do: I customize programs in unique spaces at office workplaces – creating corporate wellness programs, office yoga classes, meditation, chair yoga and ways to use the office as a space to practice your yoga or mediation daily.  Often coming in for a short series 4 weeks or a one time conference meeting for 30 min to an hour.

Besides Yoga and Meditation I also have a Co-Listening workshop I teach as a Conference and often to executives.   Many times partners and managers get together to discuss next years goals, learn and plan.  I am brought in for an afternoon break to also help them improve their listening:

Co-Listening Workshop:  This is a technique of conscious communication called co-listening which supports both speaker and listener to be clearer and more connected.  With this model, one person agrees to be the speaker and the other the listener.  The listener witnesses and remains silent; no communication happens from the listener.  When the three minutes are up we shift roles. Most often our communication problems are experiencing the feeling of being heard.  We want to jump in with our story.  Without comments or replies from each other we are freed up to be present.  

Other models may be explored if there is time.

I worked for over 25 years in corporate offices, first 15 years as a CPA and then past 10 years as a recruiter.   I have an understanding of the deadlines, pressure, environment and demands in the Western world.  I’m able to break down the processes in very easy, simple and understandable and logical language; therefore even those new to Yoga or Meditation will walk away with benefits even after one class.

Did you know that: For every $1 invested in workplace wellness,

 a company can expect $3 in cost savings or benefits?

Thinking about starting a corporate wellness program?  Lets discuss the kind of program, timeline and costs.   Most class sizes are 5 to 12 people.  Average cost is around $8 to $12 a head if you are budgeting.  We can discuss flat rate programs and build a unique program to fit your needs. Coming to me directly eliminates overhead.  Lets talk further.
