In our busy and distracting world, it's easier than ever to get stressed out and burned out. Adding Meditation to your wellness program will help your associates manage their stress, increase productivity, and find peace of mind. Jerry will guide participants through a series of exercises to help them calm their minds and focus. Even the most wandering of minds will find peace through his guidance. Longer sessions also include some seated light stretching.

 

Needs for program:

  • It is ideal that participants have a quiet and distraction free space to practice in (or noise-cancelling headphones, if a virtual session)

Office Chair Yoga

(30-60 minutes)

 

Limitations to yoga classes in the office include: 1) having space and 2) changing clothes. Jerry has adapted a style of yoga practice that allows participants to stay in their normal clothes and still get the effects of a regular yoga class, all from the comfort of an office chair. This class is easily done in a conference room or at someone's desk and can fit into anyone's lunch hour.

  • A stable chair (upright position locked into place, if using an office chair)

  • Lateral and forward open space for leaning and folding forward

(30-45 minutes)

Needs for program:

  • It is ideal that participants have a quiet and distraction free space to practice in (or noise-cancelling headphones, if a virtual session)

  • Participants will need a comfortable surface to lay down on (like a yoga mat, couch, bed, blanket, carpeted surface)

  • A small pillow for comfort

  • A blanket to cover up with

  • The more comfortable you are, the better!
