Yoga moves into offices

SHAKTI Studios yoga and wellness centre, based in the heart of Liverpool’s business district, has launched a series of corporate wellness packages that will have city centre workers feeling healthy and well from the inside out. The packages, which include team building events, corporate membership rates and even office-based yoga classes are designed to combat workplace stress and relieve the muscular tension that can be caused by sitting at a desk all day. The corporate membership package provides discounted access to Shakti Studios hot room, which includes Bikram yoga classes, many of which are timed to conveniently fit around a 9-5 schedule, and Bikram express – a 60 minute version of the miracle yoga that has been described as the healer of the spine – for those who can’t fit a full 90 minute session into their day. Evolve, the yoga inspired movement and meditation sequence devised by Shakti’s very own yoga gurus, is also included in the price. Estelle Cartlidge, creator of Shakti Studios said: “There is no healthier way to start the day than with a guided stretch and meditation. By encouraging this regular practice, either in the studio with our reduced corporate rates or in the office as a shared experience for colleagues, firms could see a real difference in the wellness and productivity of their workforce. Our qualified and experienced teachers are excited about taking yoga out into the city and sharing the Shakti love with the hard working people of Liverpool.” Those interested in Shakti’s corporate packages can contact the studio for details on info@bikramyogaliverpool.com or 0151 236 1375. If appropriate, an in-office demo, or short taster session, can be arranged.
