“I have been a grateful student in Ann’s yoga classes for a couple of years. I have especially appreciated her non-judgmental and very encouraging approach. Her classes offer increasing challenges for students to stretch their bodies and their repertoire of yoga poses, but always in a compassionate, supportive, and peaceful atmosphere. In addition, her subtle humor and intention to connect personally with her students makes practicing yoga just plain fun. As Ann expands her teaching opportunities, I hope to follow her for as long as I can move my body!” -Judy S.

Parnter COllage VDAY2

This light-hearted workshop is designed for partners of all types, shapes, sizes and ability levels to deepen their bond with each other while focusing on self-care and not taking life too seriously.

Our fun Valentine’s Day session will:

Join us for an evening of togetherness! Light refreshments to follow our 60-minute beginner-friendly yoga session held in the ballroom – surrounded by dark hardwood and fireplaces. We believe that the couples, families, and friends that practice yoga together, stay together!

Recharge Your Workplace

“They did an excellent job as our workplace wellness instructors. Everyone loved it and was so relaxed!!!” – Roune B., Housing Alliance of Delaware

Corporate Yoga Session – photo by Grace M. at LexisNexis Risk Solutions

Ann is fantastic! She helped our organization institute a corporate yoga program that our employees love and benefit from tremendously. All the participants adore Ann! She is terrific at helping each of us modify our practice to our own specific needs, is incredibly friendly and has been an amazing instructor. She is the main reason our onsite program has been so successful.-Grace M., LexisNexis Risk Solutions

Healthy workplaces all start with healthy workers. As adults, we spend one third of our lives at work, yet so often we barely stop working to even eat lunch. If we make time to create routines that support our physical, mental, and emotional health and well-being, we can change the health of the workplace. Healthy workers are present and feel good about themselves and their workplace roles and relationships. They are responsive, not reactive in stressful situations, and understand the importance of self care for achieving work-life balance.

Our Recharge sessions employ mindful techniques that focus on the fundamentals: improving posture, breath and balance. We’d like to help your team:

  • Manage stressful workplace situations through simple, focused breathing exercises.
  • Improve posture and balance by connecting the breath with simple yoga-based movement.
  • Enhance workplace safety and injury prevention through situational awareness.
  • Build work/life balance through mindful meditation and simple self-care routines.

Here is how we can help your team recharge through optimizing three simple tools: posture, breath and balance.

POSTURE

  • Understand why correct posture is essential to health and well-being.
  • Learn several simple exercises targeted at improving posture.
  • Build moment to moment awareness of the posture through the breath.

BREATH

  • Use the breath to manage stress, anxiety and depression.
  • Practice breathing techniques and guided breath meditations.
  • Discover how the breath can make everyday tasks both safer and easier.

BALANCE

  • Understand how the systems of balance – vestibular, vision, and proprioceptive – rely upon our posture and breath.
  • Practice basic balance exercises that can be integrated into everyday situations.
  • Explore how the theme of balance can be applied to self-care and our relationships.

What makes our workplace history unique? We established Team Sun Wellness after learning workplace self-care the hard way. Having spent years in fast-paced, high-performing corporate environments, we, like many, struggled with prolonged exposure to stress and were challenged to find that elusive work/life balance. Being so focused on our relationships with customers and colleagues, we forgot to take care of ourselves.

Over time, we both experienced what’s called in the world of teachers, “the burnout cascade.” Cumulative stress had slowly worn down our resilience to the constantly shifting demands of each day and challenged our ability to best serve those around us. More and more often, we found ourselves reacting and not responding. Eventually, we chose to leave our highly rewarding positions to take a step back and determine how to excel in our workplace roles while also taking care of ourselves. We have learned through our training in mindfulness, yoga and agile/scrum that every tool we need to succeed is and always has been right in front of us. Our mission is to share what we have learned and help teams like yours reach their true potential.

Gentle Yoga Class Today

I feel so lucky to be teaching this WSCC Gentle Yoga class in the very beautiful Wallingford Presbyterian Church‘s Fellowship Hall.  We created some fellowship there today! Thanks to all who came out to practice. Your tree poses were amazing and I wish I had a picture of that to show you (not that it really matters what you look like on the outside!) Here’s our pic from the day:IMG_3742Apologies as I couldn’t fit everyone in and also felt a little awkward doing it right at the end of class, when the last thing you should be doing is thinking about your exterior appearance. I hope you were able to take some of the calm energy we cultivated today into the rest of your interactions. See you next week!

Namaste.

This class means hope for me to have a better life! Sciatica pain had sapped my energy and I knew I couldn’t do most yoga poses. Chair yoga gives me relief; makes me feel stronger in body and mind. It’s something I look forward to. It’s a gift.” – Carol L.
