Yoga at Your Workplace
Break up your busy work schedule with some yoga before work, lunch-time, or unwind and stretch at the end of your working day. The best thing is...the yoga class comes to you.
Why | Doing yoga at work can not only boost your creativity and output but helps improve focus & concentration. It's also a nice way to spend some time with colleagues outside of the usual work dynamic - a perfect and convenient way to stay fit while gaining stamina & flexibility without having to leave the office.
The length and time of the session can be designed to fit in with your company - a 45min session or 60 min session. You can also choose the pace of your classes: dynamic, medium, slow & restorative, or let Trudi choose the pace for your group.
Feel free to contact Trudi with any questions you may have or you may find it helpful to read some further information below.
Where To Start | You will need to scout out a suitable space to hold your yoga class - so either a meeting or recreation room where the table and chairs can be moved aside temporarily (or Trudi can look into booking some space in a studio nearby). Then approximate how many yoga mats can fit into your space (length of a yoga mat plus a bit of space to stretch arms out to the side when lying down).
Number of People | Next you'll need to straw-poll your company and find out how many people would like to join the yoga class. Work out if you want a lunchtime or after-work session and the length of class which suits you best (e.g. 45, 60 or 75 mins).
Customise | Choose the pace of your classes: dynamic, medium, slow, restorative or let Trudi choose the right pace for your group.
Yoga Mats | Everyone will need their own yoga mat. So you can either buy one yourself, or Trudi can recommend a good brand and suggest where to buy it from, or she can arrange to buy as many mats as you need in bulk and get it delivered straight to your company.
Clothing | Wear some comfortable stretchy clothing which will allow you to move easily.
Cost | Some companies are happy to meet the full cost of classes or subsidise towards them as a gesture of good-will and a commitment to the well-being of their staff.
Otherwise booking a block-of-classes is the easiest way to manage how many people attend and fix the cost for each person per class. The more people who join in the more cost effective it will be.
Blocks of classes | Classes are usually in blocks of 4, 6 or 8 and held once-a-week (or more if you like). Sessions can be for 45mins, 60mins or 75mins.
45 min sessions | £45 per class
60 minute sessions | £60 per class
75 minute sessions | £75 per class
If a class is cancelled (because you need to use your meeting room or Trudi cannot make the class) you will get your money back for that session or another class can easily be tagged onto the end of the block.
"I take classes with Trudi in the middle of the work day. They are a fantastic way to relax and concentrate my mind - I couldn't do without them. Trudi is an amazingly patient and diligent teacher and explains the 'mechanics' of each pose, unlike other instructors who just strike the pose without explanation."
