Desktop Yoga

Sitting is the new smoking.

Dr James Levine, director of the Mayo Clinic-Arizona State University Obesity Solutions Initiative says “I think the revolution is coming. It’s going to happen. The cool companies, cool executives are not driving BMWs, they’re on treadmills. My kids won’t be working the way my colleagues and myself have,” he says. “This is about hard-core productivity. You will make money if your workforce gets up and gets moving.” he says. “The science is not refuted.”

Wellbeing@Work has the solution to get you up and out of your chair, Desktop Yoga.

Desktop Yoga has been designed to be practised at your office desk.
Our objective is to teach participants how to stretch at their desk and encourage them to incorporate these movements into their normal working day – just as having a cuppa becomes part of their day, so too will Desktop Yoga.

Desktop Yoga can be conducted within a small space without the need for special equipment or clothing. All you need is a chair and your normal working attire. This simplicity makes Desktop Yoga sessions suitable where space and time is limited.

To get your staff up and moving we can start with a Desktop Yoga Workshop that runs from 30 to 90 minutes to introduce the stretches and outline the benefits. Then after this session your team can continue their Desktop Yoga practice on a daily basis through our series of video’s available below.

Our Desktop Yoga videos run from just five mins and deal with shoulders, neck and lower back tension, but best of all they get you out of your chair and energized!
