Yoga in the Workplace
Corporate yoga packages can be custom-made for you, your workers and colleagues. Working with groups of employees and managers we can bring the convenience of yoga sessions to you on-site, in offices, workrooms, factories, shops and restaurants.
YogaWellbeing has provided corporate yoga for organisations and businesses including Gateshead Hospitals NHS Trust, Proctor & Gamble, PrismTech, Northumbria Probation Trust, Harland Accountants and many others.
Offering a regular yoga session in your workplace can quickly pay for itself by:
- Reducing work days lost through sickness
- Increasing employee motivation
- Improving job satisfaction
- Increasing productivity
- Helping attract and retain a high quality workforce
- Showing a commitment to staff welfare
A weekly yoga session could improve physical and mental health of workers and managers, teach them about relaxation, boost their immune systems and their energy levels.
Mindfulness in the Workplace
Corporate mindfulness packages offer so many benefits to a stressed out workforce, not least a time to relax and create a little space to think and reflect. Mindfulness courses for corporate and business customers can deliver our most popular 8-week course or be custom-made to suit your time commitment and workforce needs.
A standard session is 45 minutes and covers relaxation, breathing, improved concentration and focus. Mindfulness practice is a well known and respected science that helps individuals:
- Develop greater creativity and resourcefulness
- Learn better coping skills
- Become more resilient
- Establish better team working
- Improve staff/management relationships
- Build greater empathy within the workforce
“Great course and a great tutor. Very welcoming and made me feel at ease.”Louise, P&G North Tyneside

Gateshead Carers, Gateshead Bangladeshi Association, Gateshead Muslim Society, Crossroads Carers, Gateshead Council Sports’ Development are among the groups YogaWellbeing has worked with.
Yoga for schools
Yoga Wellbeing’s Yoga for Schools Programme helps children:
- Improve their ability to concentrate
- Learn techniques to relax and overcome stress
- Become more sensitive and self-aware
- Improve their self-control
- Develop self-esteem and greater confidence
YogaWellbeing will work with you to tailor the programme to suit the individual requirements of your school, staff and children to achieve the desired learning outcomes.
Teachers love children’s yoga too! Feedback from classroom teachers shows that they observe a visible difference in children after yoga sessions. The children appear calmer and more relaxed.
Children’s ability to concentrate is often transformed quite dramatically. Relationships between staff and children and between the children themselves can also benefit. A child’s social skills and their educational attainment can be significantly improved through greater awareness and self-reflective processes promoted within their yoga practice.
“The children love it and are so excited when after school yoga club comes around each Thursday. Sara introduces new postures each week in a fun and safe environment where the children are able to express themselves freely through yoga.”
V Mellor, Teacher, Kibblesworth Primary School, Gateshead
