WHY IS WELLBEING IN THE CORPORATE WORLD IMPORTANT?
Now more than ever there is an increased need for companies to prioritise employee wellbeing.
Employees suffering stress are more likely to report depression and other health complaints resulting in greater levels of fatigue and days absence.
Implementation of an effective wellness programme helps create a happier, more focussed and productive workforce, encouraging camaraderie and connection amongst teams, and building resilience to better cope with the inevitable stresses associated with a busy working life.
“12.8 million days are lost due to stress, depression and anxiety, and 6.9 million days are lost due to musculoskeletal disorders.”
Health & Safety Executive Annual Statistics Report (GB 2018/2019).
“Employers can jump start a stale wellness programme by taking a more holistic perspective and looking at overall wellbeing of mind, body and spirit.”

THE BENEFITS OF INCORPORATING MINDFUL MOVEMENT METHOD IN THE WORKPLACE:
INCREASE BRAIN FUNCTION
Mindful movement and breathing creates optimal functioning of our brain; assisting cognitive abilities of reasoning and increasing memory.
Back, shoulder, neck and wrist pain in addition to general aches and pains associated with prolonged periods of time sitting at desks can impact physical and mental health. Exploring mindful movement and learning how to effectively optimise the breath can greatly impact and ease pains associated with sedentary jobs.
Work/life balance can be optimised by feeling better during working hours. The breath optimally supports our minds and bodies to find a greater sense of balance physically and mentally.
Through specific movement practices and breathing techniques we can create the optimal environment within our nervous system for greater resilience and emotional regulation. Learning how to harness the power of the breath brings steadiness and calm to body and mind.
Play is so often lacking in busy adult lives. Play invites freedom, encourages creativity, improves team building and optimises feelings of empowerment and joy. A perfect combination for a happy working environment!
HOW DO I WORK WITH YOU?
I partner with many corporate wellbeing teams to increase the support available for employees in their home-based work environments and in the corporate workspace offering Mindful Movement Method classes, Breath Coaching and Yoga Therapy.
Using a combination of therapeutic techniques, neuroscience, evidence based mindful movement practices, condition-specific breathing techniques and positive psychology to encourage behaviour change, I can help create a happier, healthier and more productive workforce.
Mindful Movement Method practices are designed to improve employees mental and physical wellbeing, focussing on the development of tools and techniques that can be used in the workplace and beyond.
“Nadyne is an absolute star! We started offering virtual yoga classes for all of our employees through lockdown to help them unwind and keep moving. Nadyne has been amazing at tailoring to all abilities and really understanding the needs of each and every individual. Her classes are relaxed and fun, and she always throws in an element of challenge for those who are game!
She skilfully guides and holds the space for us to feel safe (which is not easy to do virtually!). Classes with Nadyne have become the highlight of my week, it’s the only time that I feel like my mind is still and my body fully relaxed. I know that I am not alone in feeling like that- she’s keeping us all sane!”
Sophie Bowen. Learning & Development Manager at COOK Trading Ltd.
“I first used Mindful Movement Method’s services in a personal capacity prior to lockdown so when the pandemic arrived, I had no hesitation in offer Nadyne’s sessions as a way to promote wellbeing for my staff during the lockdown.
Nadyne is very professional, friendly and warm, and actively engaged staff who may not have considered yoga otherwise. She’s been able to support a wide range of abilities and her sessions noticeably improved positivity of our staff which helped them to cope during a stressful time. I thoroughly recommend her services.”
