Yoga in the workplace can be an invaluable tool to help employees reduce stress, physical stiffness and mental tension and increase energy and productivity by taking time for self care. I provide classes for offices, workplaces and teams.

I offer both regular classes, where some of the postures and practices are done sitting on the floor/lying down, and also an office adaptation, “off the mat”, in the form of a chair Yoga session. Chair Yoga can take place any time of the day, without the need of special equipment/clothing, and it can be attended by everybody (including those completely new to Yoga or those who have injuries/mobility restrictions that would prevent them from participating in a traditional class).

A growing number of businesses are finding that offering Yoga as part of their employee wellness programmes is an effective tool to support employees’ productivity and health, both physical and mental.

Below are the words of Aileen Riney, the occupational therapist who invited me to deliver a course for her colleagues in Swords Health Centre, Co Dublin.

 “HSE mental health and primary care services staff took part in Operation Transformation 2020 which prompted us to book a 6 week course of chair-based yoga with Nadia.

We chose this type of yoga to accommodate the different physical abilities of staff and the limited space we have in the health centre. We chose Nadia based on her reviews, professionalism and offer to travel to us to provide yoga.

All we had to do was set up the chairs and then Nadia did the rest. She attended on time every week and made an effort to remember all our names and various ailments. She adapted each exercise by giving alternatives for those with injuries. Chair based yoga was the ideal choice as it suited all ages and fitness levels. It is amazing how much of a stretch you can get from sitting down for an hour! Nadia’s gentle voice guiding us through the movements was so relaxing. Thank you Nadia for always reminding us to breathe as we concentrated on learning the movement patterns! Staff loved the classes and commented feeling like they were “walking on air” afterwards. We felt refreshed and more productive after taking that time for self-care.

Months later we still talk about those peaceful lunchtime yoga classes when we could take a break from the hustle and bustle of the day and focus on our breathing and posture.”

My corporate clients included: HSE and Public Appointments Service, for whom I have provided classes as part of their employee wellness programmes and Fingal County Council, who invited me to run chair Yoga classes in various libraries across North County Dublin, as part of the Bealtaine Festival.
