Six-Week Yoga for Stress Course

 
 

Help your employees understand and implement effective strategies for stress relief. Studies consistently show that yoga, meditation and breathing exercises are associated with increased performance and reduce absences in the workplace. Join the many employers improving workplace wellbeing with this movement-based approach to managing stress.

I offer a six-week couse designed specifically to teach participants effective and easy startegies for managing stress and achieving a sense of calm and balance.

Each week, participants will practice a yoga sequence specifically designed to relieve stress. Movement, breathing exerices simple meditation techniques will not only be taught but participants will have time to implement them on their own as part of a self-led practice. This allows for immediate results to be observed and participants quickly develop a sense of self-efficacy and confidence in their abilities to manage stress. Six weeks allow for ample practice time to ensure the basics of postures and exercises are understood, experienced and implemented safely.

What participants say about the Course

“It was good to have a chance to learn correct yoga techniques to help with day to day stress. Susanne was a brilliant yoga teacher.”

“The pace of the sessions was very good so everyone could follow regardless of their yogic abilities. And Susanne made sure everyone was working safely, always important, but in a class with such mixed abilities, even more so.”
