Professional Development through Yoga, Embodiment & Mindfulness
What is it about?
Yoga is not just about postures, flexibility, and relaxation: it’s a holistic way of getting to know yourself better, it helps to reflect on your personal patterns and grow from there to master your life with ease. My professional development workshops tap into the power of yoga by using Embodied Yoga Principles postures, mindfulness, and meditation practices to connect with yourself and your current life situation. In contrast to regular yoga classes, in these workshops we talk to each other, reflect on personal patterns and give support. It’s always a lot of fun. People leave empowered and inspired to experiment with new ways of dealing with everyday life stresses.
what ARE the workshops?
Here are some examples of workshops I have delivered in the past:
Focus & Concentration
Patience & Kindness
Become aware of your needs and find ways of nurturing yourself, so that feelings of burnout stay far away from you and you remain inspired and healthy.
Learn how to use embodied mini-breaks to boost your energy during your workday.
Learn body postures to boost your confidence and deal with nerves before a conference talk or important meeting. Learn to stand up for yourself and your needs and feel empowered through your body position.
Focus + Concentration
Using mindfulness and centring practices to let go of distraction and avoid procrastination.
Patience + Kindness
Identifying when we get impatient, identifying the areas of the body that get tense when we are impatient, and using this knowledge to develop kind responses rather than impulsive reactions.
