WE'RE ALL STRESSED
A Qualtrics study from this past spring noted that almost 40% of employees reported that not one person from their company, including managers, had asked if they were doing okay. Those employees were 38% more likely than others to admit that since the pandemic began their mental health had worsened. Taking everyone’s stress levels down is paramount with no separation between work life and home life.
Together, teams can work out the knots from sitting at makeshift home offices with a group Have A Seat Yoga class. All employees can participate in this type of activity regardless of their fitness level, and it is powerful in reinvigorating everyone for the rest of the day.

HOW YOGA CHANGED MY LIFE
AND CAN CHANGE YOURS
My journey with yoga began when I was 40 years old and recovering from thyroid cancer. I had three separate surgeries in three years and also a round of radiation that left me weak, frightened and wondering how I would gain not only my physical strength back, but more importantly, my emotional and spiritual strength.
I stumbled on a yoga class that was scheduled to be a pilates class and was hooked! Yoga provided me an opportunity to rebuild my strength at my own pace with no judgement.
As I became stronger physically, it allowed me to grow my emotional and spiritual strength too. That is the essence of yoga - creating balance and harmony and taking what you have learned and applying it into your daily life.
