How It Works
Depending on the needs of your company, the sessions can focus on any or a combination of the following:
Many of us live in sympathetic dominance, fight or flight. Breathing techniques are the quickest, most efficient ways to shift our body into a parasympathetic dominance, rest & digest. So, what does all this mean? Consciously controlling our breath through the nose in a slow, regulated way signals to our brain to relax and calm down. Breathing well is a vitality enhancing practice which scientifically mitigates high blood glucose, inflammation, and increases resilience in coping with stress, anxiety, anger and depression.
Heather will guide participants through various, easy-to-learn breath work exercises. After the first session, you will feel the difference!
I cannot quiet my mind. I cannot stop my thoughts. These are the typical reasons why people do not stick with a meditation practice. Heather will never ask her students to erase thoughts as that is asking them to do the impossible. As long as you are alive, have a pulse, you will have thoughts.
Guided meditation is a process of relaxed concentration. It can be done either seated or laying down in a comfortable position. It is perfect for beginners and those who have a hard time noticing all the thoughts and emotions flooding in. In lieu of sitting in silence (which can be uncomfortable for many practitioners), participants focus on the guidance of the teacher. You have an instant anchor for your mind.
Sitting in front of a computer screen for long hours often puts us in an unnatural, unhealthy posture that can create neck/back strain and discomfort. Productivity output and employee wellbeing, then is at stake.
Heather will lead participants through a series of breath work and meditation techniques, yoga postures that can be done seated or standing, all done right at their desks. There is no need to have the space to roll out a yoga mat! Chair Yoga is available for the complete beginner all the way up to the experienced practitioner.
