It is increasingly acknowledged that sitting for long periods at a desk is detrimental to health and encouraging staff to attend an in-house Yoga or Pilates Class is one answer to this.
Pilates and Yoga are systems of exercise, both of which
- increase strength
- improve flexibility
- benefit posture and breathing
making them ideal offerings to staff, particularly those in sedentary, desk type roles.
Pilates, created by a German Physical Therapist, Joseph Pilates, focuses on developing long flexible limbs from a strong central core through a system of exercises.
Yoga is an ancient discipline involving physical, mental and spiritual practise through the attainment of a series of physical postures and breathing exercises to improve health and well-being.

All that's required is a Meeting Room or similar (open areas are fine, too) and a person to administer the service within the company.
Classes can be a one-off, at Health Events, for example, or organised on an on-going basis.
