Frequently Asked Questions
1) What are the benefits of onsite yoga?

Increased efficiency, productivity & creativity
Improved focus under deadlines
Improved mindset, morale and loyalty
Enhanced employee strength, posture & health, and decrease chronic pain

2) Our office doesn’t have a gym or studio, where would we practice?
Onsite Yoga classes are small group classes taught at your place of business in a quiet, comfortable space such as a boardroom, lunch room, or conference room. Chairs and tables can be easily pushed aside to transform a work space into “yoga space.” For the first session or two, we can bring props (foam blocks, straps and mats) for a limited number of people, but after that we would expect each person or the company to purchase their own. These may all be purchased through us at a very reasonable rate.
3) What other corporations offer onsite yoga?
Aetna, Amazon, IBM, AT&T, Google, Microsoft, REI, HBO, NexComm, Nike, Intel, Apple, PepsiCo, GE, Chase Manhattan Bank, Goldman Sachs, NFL, NBA, American Medical Association, Zillow, and the White House, just to name a few.

6) How often should we offer yoga to our employees/group members?
