THE WORKPLACE YOGI TEAM

Our Teachers

 

Not only are our teachers experienced in yoga and mindfulness, they have all worked in the corporate world. That means they speak your language and can relate their teaching to your business environment.  All of our teachers are committed to making yoga and mindfulness practices accessible to our diverse multicultural clients.  When you work with us you won’t get any ‘woo, woo’ language, chanting or invitations to connect with your spirit. You will get teachers who understand the physical and mental benefits of the practices and are able to relate it to your work environment.
