Corporate Yoga Workshops
Updated: Oct 7, 2022
We live in a busy world where many of us work long hours, hunched over at a desk with our eyes focused on the computer screen for most of the day. Oftentimes, because of deadlines and quotas that have to be met, many in the corporate world do not stop and take a break and even skip the deserved and needed lunch break.
One of the biggest concerns is the amount of stress-induced sickness that many employees face.
People from the corporate world tell me this all the time…
I wish I have time to make it to a yoga studio.
I wish my company would offer yoga to the employees.
My work environment has become toxic because everyone is so stressed!
The Corporate World Needs Yoga!
After being in the industry for a while now, I realize that the corporate arena is where yoga practice is needed most.
The tension harbored from sitting at a desk all day can be improved with gentle breathing exercises and stretches...that you can do right from your desk! If you work a job where you spend the most time on your feet, a nice stretch and restorative class can help you feel energized and ready for the next day!

What is a Corporate Workshop for Yoga?
After teaching hour-long corporate classes once per week for about a year, I realized that incorporating the yoga practice into a monthly or quarterly workshop is really where companies see the benefit.
Workshops are more than a class, they are more detailed, highlighting different areas of the practice, such as breath, movement, and mindfulness. Also, educating employees on where these qualities can be used within their day.
Furthermore, yoga-related workshops allow employees to engage with one another in a safe space focusing on teamwork, leadership, fun, and strengthening professional relationships.
We survived a pandemic--and the Great Resignation. Corporations are looking for incentives to help retain employees and keep them happy (and healthier).
The Rolling Mat is ready to integrate its informative, beneficial, and fun-filled workshops into corporate wellness and team-building functions throughout the year!
Why Employees Need Yoga
Some of the benefits that companies can expect to see from their employees are:
A decline in stress-related sickness
Improvement in concentration and decision making
Relief in physical pain, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, head, neck, and back pain
Better teamwork and comradery among employee
All of these points mentioned inspire a healthy, happy, and productive workplace. When planning your budget, allocate some funds for workshops that will leave a lasting impact on employees and set the tone for a positive and productive year!
The Rolling Mat offers monthly and quarterly workshops. The outline can be modified to fit the needs of the employee. As a mobile yoga studio, all of the equipment is provided! A proposal can be sent and further discussed upon request.
If your business is not in my area, I can also refer you to one of the yoga teachers that developed their corporate yoga skills through my mentorship program.
