YogaWellbeing has taught in a number of different corporate environments and is able to provide a variety of teaching arrangements

At work sessions

Designed to meet the needs of the company and employees and usually offered before work, during lunch or straight after work. Classes can be fully paid for by the company, subsidised by the company or the company can choose to just provide the space free of charge and then ask employees to pay on an individual basis (subject to a minimum hourly rate being achieved).

One off or time limited sessions

A single session or a number of sessions for company conferences, ergonomic and desk exercise training, away days or team building events can be arranged. With a background in organisational Psychology, Kim specialises in designing workshops to meet all needs from those that follow the more traditional yoga class format to those which focus on relieving workplace tension, improve concentration and relaxation and that help to avoid common workplace ailments such as backache, shoulder ache and RSI.

YogaWellbeing can design and deliver sessions to meet the individual needs of your company and can range from 15 minutes – 3 hours.
