Virtual Desk Yoga & Mindfulness Sessions


As the name suggests, Desk Yoga can be practised from your workspace, whether that be in the office or the one you use at home. Because there is no need for a mat, these classes are ideal for smaller spaces and can even be practised in regular clothes. Each session combines movement – a combination of standing and seated stretches – with mindfulness and breathwork for added mental health benefits.

Our clients find that they are a great way to break up the day, get moving and let go of stress, returning to their work feeling refreshed and more inhabited in their bodies. We also offer Desk Pilates sessions.

What if I can’t make the scheduled start time?
We stream our classes live to create a communal experience for our attendees, however, our sessions can also be played back later at a time that suits you.

If you’re running a few minutes late, you can still join the session via the same link.

Will my camera be on?
It’s entirely up to you. Zoom Fatigue is real! We usually recommend that people enable them at the start to greet each other. Once the class has begun, you may prefer to have cameras switched off so you can more deeply enter the space of your practice.

How many people can join?
The limit imposed by the software we use is 300 participants. For larger groups, please get in touch with your requirements.

Who can attend?
All levels are welcome, from complete beginners to seasoned yogis. Modifications will be given to adapt the poses to any level and any body.

What equipment do we need?
All your team would need is somewhere to sit, a bit of space to move around in, and loose comfortable clothes.

What if we need to cancel?
Cancellations/reschedules may be made with no charge as long as at least 24 hours' notice is given.

Are your teachers insured?
Yes, all of our instructors are fully accredited, trained in first aid, and carry liability insurance.

How much will it cost?
Our prices start from just £75 a session. Rates are calculated based on length of the class(es) rather than the number of participants.
