Frequently asked questions

Corporate Yoga vs. Corporate Mindfulness Session?


Yoga session promotes: Gentle Exercise, Stretching, Breathing techniques , Relaxation, Concentration, Meditation, Self awareness (body and mind), Introspection, Positive Thinking, and Heightened Sense of Common Goal. Sessions are 45 to 55 minuted long depending on your companies need. Space can be limited to 35 employees per class. If you have bigger demands we suggest adding classes daily or even 2 back to back 45 minute classes. Employees will want to change into athletic clothes. Mindfulness session promotes: Productivity through the simple practices of Mindful Movement (to help cultivate body awareness, refine or improve posture), Conscious Breathing Techniques (to start to learn to control our breath, calm nervous system down, bring mind into a calmer state) & Meditation (to help cultivate attention and focus). Harmony of mind & body leads to superior performance, more confidence, improved composure and engagement. Sessions are 30 minutes long, in your conference room, with no maximum number of participants and no need to change clothes. We teach your employees the skills they need to stay relax, receptive, creative and productive. Corporate Yoga and Mindfulness Meditation give employees the opportunity to experience calmness of mind, defeat fatigue, increase alertness and improve productivity while at the same time experiencing the advantage of optimal health. Classes are all-levels and are suitable for anyone, even absolute beginners.

What time of day and how often should session be offered?


Anytime is better than no time. Most companies decide based on availability of conference room or company schedule. Since sessions are only 30 to 50 minutes we suggest using it as an opportunity for employees to take a controlled break mid-morning, during lunch hour, or around 2pm when employees tend to lose focus. Depending on the size of your company and conference room, some companies offer sessions daily and even 2x daily while others once per week.

- For the Yoga sessions we suggest employees bring yoga or athletic clothes.

Do we have to clear the conference room of furniture? Can we hold sessions in the company kitchen / open space?


- Mindfulness sessions only require that each participant have a chair & some personal space for the mindful movement segment. You don’t need to re-arrange anything, we work with your environment, the experience is seamless.

- Yoga sessions require more room but we have offered it in the midst of cubicles and outdoors on lawn.


- Conference rooms are ideal since we can remove sound & visual distraction. Open spaces like kitchens aren’t ideal since employees are used to talking on their phone or using the microwave in this space. If you have to use an open space, try to make sure it’s as secluded and distraction free as possible.
