Wellness in the Workplace: Mindfulness and Movement for the Whole Person

Wellness in the Workplace:  Mindfulness and Movement for the Whole Person

"It’s not just the number of hours we sit at a desk that determines the value we generate. It’s the energy we bring to the hours we work." — Tony Schwartz, author and CEO of the Energy Project.

Practices in mindfulness can yield tremendous psychological, emotional and physical health benefits.  This is why more and more companies are realizing that their employees’ health is one of the most important predictors of the company’s health. Join companies such as Google, Target, General Mills, Nike, Apple, and AOL and invest in whole employee wellness.  This one-hour workshop offers exercises in mindfulness, meditation, and movement to increase energy, allow minds to be more focused, and improve the ability to make better decisions.  Practiced as a professional community, it promotes creativity, productivity, and connectivity amongst employees. Two artists will lead participants through a variety of exercises.   Workshop can accommodate various groups and settings.  This program is most effective with groups of 5 to 20 participants.  Arrangements for on-going series are available.  

“I cannot express in words the impact of your program yesterday afternoon…this event will be difficult to surpass!”
— Ellen Rozak, RN
