As part of Adult Learners’ Week last week, as I was asked to run some de-stress sessions in work. I created three short (15 minute) routines for the morning sessions, and two 15 minute evening sessions. I also taught a longer 30 minute lunch-time session. The morning sessions were designed to energise and stretch after a night of sleep, whilst the evening ones focus more on de-stressing, winding down and have a more restorative focus. As the sessions were held in work I focused on stretches that could be managed in office wear, and could be done by a small group of people in the very small room available. I also focused on things that are particularly good for, or needed by, desk-based office workers.
Because the idea was that people should be learning something I created handouts for the participants. These handouts are now also available on my Google Drive page. Feel free to download them and make use of them. There are other routines of mine on the site such as back care and pregnancy yoga that you might find helpful.
