On-site Meditation Sessions (30-45 minutes)
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.
Dial-In Meditation Sessions (10-20 minutes)
Create wider access to your wellness program by allowing your associates to participate in Meditation regardless of their location. This option is especially great for organizations with remote team members. Jerry will provide a call-in number (via Zoom, which includes global access) and participants can dial in at the scheduled time.
Yoga Classes (45-90 minutes)
Adding yoga classes to your wellness program will help your team to unwind and manage stress, all while supporting their physical wellness. Jerry's careful training and modifications will make yoga postures accessible to everyone, no matter their skill level or limitations. Locations could include conference rooms, multi-purpose rooms, or other open spaces in your office.
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 and can fit into anyone's lunch hour.

Improve your Wellness Program with specialized talks on Meditation, Mindfulness, and Creativity by Jerry. These informal talks include PowerPoint slides, group interaction, and time for Q&A. Read more below.
Meditation - Staying Mindful in a Distracted World (30-60 minutes)
In our busy and distracting world, it's easier than ever to get stressed out and burned out. Thankfully, there are healthy time-tested means, like Meditation, to manage and mitigate the effects of stress on your mind, body, and nervous system. In this talk, we'll discuss the neurological effects of stress, demystify Meditation, and how easy it is to bring Meditation techniques into your daily life.
This talk features three different opportunities to practice meditation, proving to participants just how accessible this wellness practice can be.
Mindfulness in Business (45-60 minutes)
Mindfulness in Business looks into who we are "being" in our day to day interactions, ranging from communication ethics to awareness of individual sensibilities (i.e. - introversion vs. extroversion), including aligning our actions with our personal core values. The goal of this talk is to give participants a new awareness and new language when it comes to self-accountability in the workplace (and life).
Unblocking Your Creativity (75-90 minutes)
Unblocking Your Creativity explores the Creative Process from a philosophical and psychological lens, using both Eastern and Western models of psychotherapeutic understanding. In this workshop, we’ll answer the questions “What is the Creative Process?” “What is Creative Block?” “What are the obstacles to a creative mind?” and “How do we overcome these obstacles?” In addition to the didactic material, we’ll experience a meditation that will help participants to better understand the concepts introduced.
The goal of this workshop is to open participants’ minds to greater creative thinking through self-awareness and deeper self-work. They will be challenged on their assumptions and asked to see beyond the obstacles that keep them stuck in their creative block. By the end, they’ll be left with material to continue to contemplate as they work toward greater creative solutions in their work and lives.
"Jerry is awesome!!!! He is great with my company, my employees love him, and I love his class. He really walks people through a journey each time. Our wellness program is at a different level with Jerry being part of it!"
