Yoga brings about a sense of restful alertness. In the context of a conference/corporate setting, yoga is an effective way of keeping course participants refreshed, attentive and in good spirits. The benefits of incorporating yoga into management training and leadership events can be summarised as follows:
– Controlling and concentrating the mind
– Keeping course participants mentally and physically alert and attentive
– Decreasing stress during the performance of challenging work activities
– Improving communication, listening, and interpersonal skills.
Lorraine McConnon has extensive experience in leading yoga workshops at corporate events of a varied nature. She specialises in introducing mini-yoga classes into the programme of events in a conference setting.
– These classes do not require any prior experience of yoga.
– Individuals can participate at any level of physical health; effectively practicing the poses and breathing exercises while dressed in normal business attire, even sitting in chairs. Floor work on mats is also available if required.
– The programs are offered in the quiet rooms of a conference setting. Lorraine provides all equipment necessary.
– Some of the techniques taught can be practiced while the participant is engaged in normal work activities.
– It also gives participants a positive method to improve their health afterwards by increasing suppleness, strength and stamina and building resistance to illness.
A typical example of a programme for incorporating yoga in corporate events is outlined below. Lorraine McConnon has successfully used this with clients including: the Metropolitan Police, BP, Rothschild’s Bank, Clifford Chance and Goldman Sachs.
Details of a specific programme can of course be adapted to suit the needs of the organisers of the corporate event.
