My name is Ella and I am a dancer and a yoga teacher. I am also an entrepreneur: Business Yoga is a project close to my heart, which is about bringing wellbeing into the office.
Every now and again during my career as a performer and choreographer, I have taken an office job to support me financially, and worked in office jobs in London, Newcastle and Leeds.
Business Yoga© was a brainwave during one of those times, based on my office experience: realising how different office life can be even within wellbeing institutions.
I really experienced and saw first hand the shifts in my colleagues and in my energy, wellbeing and stress during the work day, and so I began figuring out and birthing the beautiful sequences which have now become business yoga.
As a scoliosis sufferer I really know how important a limber spine is to a healthy body, and in office work we inhibit natural movement of the spine making this a primary problem area! Seeing the effects sitting at a desk were having on my colleagues, who were not also yogis and didn’t always get a chance to go to the gym, I realised how important healthy body and mind was for the care of employees.
I decided to make it my personal mission to make sure that staff wellbeing is at the centre of the ethos of every company, and to make that as simple as possible for employers to put in place. I would LOVE to see yoga be a part of office space in our future. And so I began designing my own program of at desk workouts for the office.
I cannot begin to stress how much meditation, movement and yoga have changed my life for the better, helping me to combat those stresses, and in the places where my sessions have been implemented, how much they have helped transform office life: making the office a place that everyone can love going to.
So far, I have helped to create positive work environments in workplaces across the UK and Lisbon, and I would love to help YOU too!
In each workplace that myself and my team have had the opportunity to teach, we have seen productivity increase, overall happiness increase and less sickness at work.
I would love to help you transform your office too!
