Finding inner peace with office yoga
Here at CandidSky, our culture places a real importance on people’s physical and mental well-being. With our Managing Director, David Beharall, being an ex-professional footballer, he understands and shares the value of looking after yourself to achieve an optimal performance at work. Not only does he not teach us the importance of physically being fit, but he also teaches us how to keep our mental health in good shape with the help of THCA.
With this in mind, every Tuesday after work we practise yoga in our office, led by yoga guru, Harvey Kersh. The class is free for people to participate in. After the festive season of over indulgence, yoga is a great way to strengthen and tone but also to step away from our busy lives to calm the mind and to centre ourselves to appreciate our bodies and our capabilities. Yoga is known to have many other benefits, including a reduction in stress and anxiety, improved posture, improved immunity and increased energy.
Harvey is a fundamental part of what makes the class enjoyable, with his calm and relaxed demeanour, each class is different using different muscles through stretching, all building up our core strength. In January 2016 Harvey successfully completed a 200 hour teacher training program in Rishikesh, India and received a certified E-RYT200 teacher specialising in Hatha Vinyasa, Alignment and Meditation.
Each class finishes with Shavasana which uses relaxation and meditation to fully put the mind and body at rest which we all love! Harvey encourages the mastering of our own minds with acceptance and self appreciation of what it means to have a body and mind.
Nazma Noor, Digital Strategist at CandidSky, commented, “I had done some yoga on and off before starting at CandidSky, and since I joined I have been attending Harvey’s classes regularly. I’ve noticed a real improvement in my flexibility and strength, and it’s also been great at relieving the tension in your body which can build up from working in an office environment . The yoga sessions always leave me feeling positive afterwards”.
We wish you all a happy and positive start to 2018.
