Workplace sessions aim to increase wellbeing amongst employees.
With work related stress now accounting for over half of all working days lost due to ill health in the UK, Brindleyplace has been investing in a range of wellbeing activities, including lunchtime yoga and morning bootcamp sessions, for workers across the estate. Now, thanks to the success of the yoga classes, this summer, a brand new pop-up yoga and wellbeing studio will offer an urban retreat for workers across the city to relax and unwind, escape the grind, calm the mind and stretch the tension away.
The Interyoga pop-up will offer a week of free classes – open to all – from 29th July, to celebrate its Brindleyplace opening. After this, Interyoga will run daily classes suitable for all levels, free meditation and mindfulness sessions, Tai Chi classes and an original form of boxing called Stress Box. There will also be a series of talks, workshops and even ‘suit yoga’, ideal for those who don’t want to get changed or sweat, but still want to release tension and stress.
Laur Beech, Interyoga founder, comments: “We’re really passionate about total mind and body health here at Interyoga, and understand how stressful working life can be. Brindleyplace is the perfect environment for us to pop up and introduce our yoga and wellbeing offering; with both a city centre and canalside location.
“So we’re very grateful to the asset manager, Hines, for giving us the opportunity to share our knowledge on how moving the body and relaxing the mind can benefit all areas of our lives.
“We want to help people to de-stress, re-focus and stay at the very top of their game. There’s a great deal of science behind how mindfulness and wellbeing can massively lift your mood. We urge anyone and everyone, no matter what level of abilities you are, to come and try it for yourself and see just how beneficial it can be.”
Interyoga has a variety of Birmingham based teachers from different cultures and backgrounds, as well as yoga styles and lineages, offering a range of experiences and class styles and has been sharing the benefits of yoga, meditation and mindfulness with businesses across Birmingham since January 2018. Passionate about all the benefits of mental health breaks during the working day offers, they have seen an amazing response from businesses and employees who have experienced first-hand the impact of taking time out to do something for themselves.
Stacey Muir, Marketing and Events Executive at Brindleyplace, adds: “Brindleyplace is well known as a safe, clean and lively place to work and play in Birmingham, and by delivering additional wellbeing initiatives, pop up operators and a diverse events programme, we can ensure Brindleyplace provides moments of calm, hours of fun, increased productivity and plenty of opportunities to connect with other city professionals.”
“Interyoga is the perfect addition to the estate and will undoubtedly help the businesses at Brindleyplace and around the city respond to the changing needs of today’s busy workers.”
The Interyoga studio will open on the ground floor of 3 Brindleyplace on 29th July. During the opening week every class is free, giving those interested the opportunity to try a range of classes, and find something that works for them.
