The packages are customised to suit the specific needs of your employees, including tailored classes set outside of the public timetable. All packages must include an initial 1-1 consultation with each individual. This can be arranged in the workplace; however, to reap all the benefits, participation of their recommended yoga programme must be at the Yoga by Karma Studio. Please get in contact with us to discuss further.

Why Am I Obliged To Invest In A Well-Being Programme?

Under the Health and Safety in Employment Act 1992, employers have an obligation to try to prevent and reduce work related harm amongst their staff. This includes mental or physical ill health due to workplace stress.

As most people are aware, exercise and lifestyle changes can play a huge role in managing debilitating stress levels. Adopting an effective programme of exercise, such as yoga, can therefore result in a win/win situation for both employees and the employer.

There are so many more benefits to practising yoga, so please feel free to visit our website for a brief outline of just some of the proven benefits.

If you have any questions, would like to discuss this programme further, or would like to meet with your SMEAEP yoga instructor (Karma) then please contact Karma Rae at or 02213karma.
