stress & wellbeing
Well at Work
According to the results of the Mental Health Foundation’s 2018 study on stress, 74% of people reported that in the past year they had felt so stressed they have been overwhelmed or unable to cope.
Fostering an open dialogue around stress and developing skills and tools to meet and manage it is a vital part of health and wellbeing in the modern world.
The workplace, being such a big slice of so many’s lives, and also often a hefty contributing factor in people’s experience of stress, makes it an ideal environment to open a discussion around mental health.
Investing in employee wellbeing promotes an environment of support and understanding, in doing so companies are saying ‘we believe mental health matters’.
As well as teaching regular yoga classes for several organisations I also lead interactive group sessions focused on sharing practical tips for meeting and managing stress and promoting well-being, in and out of work.
Here are some examples of workshops I have recently facilitated. This is to give an idea of content; all sessions can be tailored to meet specific needs and requirements:
