Tuesday, April 30th - May 21st | 12-1 PM CST

Are you looking for health and wellness programs that meet the needs of your employees? 

Yoga is more than just physical exercise – it can be an opportunity to work more deeply on issues that arise from a dysregulated nervous system. Gut health, sleep, pain management, stress management, anxiety, and depression symptoms may be improved by using yoga practices that impact the nervous system.

Are you unsure of how to evaluate what yoga might meet the needs of your employees?

Not all yoga is alike. Learn more about the kinds of approaches that may be more conducive to your employees and what they have going on. Yoga therapy programs are developed with symptom relief in mind. Programs might address low back pain, upper back, neck and shoulder pain, stress and anxiety management, better sleep, gut health, anxiety management, and seasonal mood changes.

Interested in learning more? 

Join me for a 4-session series designed for people who work in human resources and worksite wellness and health professionals who want to learn more about Yoga Therapy. During the 4-session series, you will learn about yoga therapy approaches for specific employee health needs and experience a practice to give you a real-life example of how yoga works. The format of the session will be a quick check-in and overview, yoga practice, and time for Q&A (and your lunch).

You will have 7-day access to a recording of the session. You will receive an email to let you know when the recording is available.
