We know that taking a break is what we need most, but most days that just seems impossible.  Let Unravel bring the break to you.  Our staff of trained yoga professionals will bring the benefits of mindfulness, meditation, breathwork, and moving postures to your business.  We make it easy on you, so you can complete your day feeling as if anything is possible.


Unravel's core business is corporate yoga.  On-site yoga classes can be arranged to accommodate weekly work schedules and be integrated into existing corporate wellness programs.  The utmost care will be taken to ensure that the classes are professional and appropriate to your corporate culture and employee's needs.  Classes are designed to meet the needs of all skill levels from beginner to more experienced yoga students.  The benefits of corporate yoga are many, call now for a free on-site assessment for corporate yoga classes.  


Why incorporate yoga?  Type in the phrase "effectiveness of yoga in the workplace" in Google Scholar and you'll find numerous studies providing evidence for the positive impact that practicing mindfulness, meditation, breathwork, and yoga at work have.  Studies cover stress-reduction, back pain, cardiovascular disease, obesity, aggression, anxiety, depression, mental health, weight loss, counterproductivity, developing emotional intelligence, gender empowerment, etc.  And these are just the benefits an individual experiences.  Employees that practice together are in effect experiencing a regular team-building activity that cultivates respect, understanding, cooperation, communication, and organizational strength.  Combine these benefits with the need to offer competitive wellness programs that attract and retain employees and you have  the perfect solution. 


Work smart.  Live well.  Breathe easy.


A new use for the boardroom:  What will you need to host a corporate yoga class?  A conference room, empty office, lobby, summer deck or wide hallway is all we'll need to get started.  Students will need appropriate active wear and a water bottle.  Mats and props can be provided.  


Transitioning at the end of the day from stress at work to home life is a hard one. Sometimes the ride home just isn’t long enough. During my more stressful jobs, I was grateful when I could find a yoga class that matched my schedule allowing me to come home reinvigorated and ready to be the best mom that I could be. My family benefits when I do yoga.
— Sami, Unravel Owner/Lead Instructor

How often?  To experience steady progress, a regular practice of 2-3 times of yoga a week is recommended (i.e. Tuesdays and Thursdays or Monday, Wednesday, and Friday).  Classes that are offered at lunchtime or just after work are usually the most convenient for employees.  


Who will lead?  Unravel instructors are hired based on a high level of training, reliability, and integrity.   Instructors will adhere to strict rules for ensuring an appropriate, professional environment with regards to dress, language, music, teaching style, and behavior.  They will accommodate the needs of the employees ensuring that a safe and valuable practice is provided.  A background check is performed on all instructors.  All instructors are First Aid, AED, and CPR certified, insured, and registered with Yoga Alliance.  


How much is it?  As costs for health insurance continue to rise, employers must continue to find innovative and cost-effective means to keep their healthcare costs down.  Of course the best way to reduce healthcare costs is to improve the health of the workforce.  Individual gym and fitness club memberships for employees are expensive and often go unused by many employees.  What is needed for your busy workforce is cost-effective convenience.  Bringing a highly-qualified yoga teacher that specializes in mindfulness, meditation, breathwork, and yoga to your work location, allows employees to simply "walk down the hall" to class for a highly-valuable experience.  No time is wasted getting in the car, driving to another location, parking, and driving back after class.  

Unravel offers classes on a flat-rate basis, so the more employees attend (only limited by the space available), the more value you, the employer receives.  Pricing is purposefully simple:  $150/class/week.  Discounts are available for additional weekly classes.
