Yoga at Work Case studies
Yogahub provided onsite yoga services in the form of a beginner’s level program to Organisation A’s 23 employees. The employees ranged in age from 25 to 52. The course was delivered on site at 4pm on Thursday afternoons for eight weeks at the towards the end of working day. The course was progressive, meaning that each class built on the previous class, allowing the pace to build up slowly with plenty of time for repetition and questions from participants. The course was delivered with the intention that at the end of the course employees would have a basic yoga practice that had memorised and would feel comfortable attending any yoga general yoga or have enough tools to start a home practice. The employees ranged in age from 25 to 52.
Yogahub provides an ongoing weekly yoga class to organisation B’s employees. The classes are offered on Wednesdays at lunchtime and are 50 minutes in duration. The yoga is focused on reducing muscular tension, and increasing relaxation with new sequencing each week. Each week participation levels vary with employees attending only in weeks that it suits them.
Department of Veteran Affairs
Yogahub provided therapeutic yoga services to Defence Force Veterans on a Department of Veteran Affairs Lifestyle Retreat held at Yanchep National Park over the course of a week. The yoga was offered as an adjunct to psychological programs on the retreat. The participants included veterans of various ages and physical abilities, many with limitations, nearly all had never practiced yoga before. An awareness that some participants may have mental health considerations was factored into designing the yoga program. The program focused on gentle simple breathing, and very safe, mindful movement. The intention was to provide participants with basic skills in modulating and making positive choices around arousal patterns. Services were provided by a senior teacher, trained in working with clinical populations.
