Stress: it can be challenging to find the tools and the time to manage, but it may be easier than we realize. It has been shown that regular meditation practice not only reduces stress and anxiety, but boosts your immune system, increases emotional intelligence, and improves learning capacity.

Join meditation expert Tara Good in this bi-weekly series to experience the benefits of meditation for yourself.

Classes will be 25 minutes each and are suitable to both new and experienced meditators. Tara will be available at the end of each session for discussion, questions, and to offer you any guidance and support that you may need in developing your own practice. These classes run from 3-4pm.

With limited opportunity in the workday for movement, you may be putting your body at risk of more than just bad posture. Linked to a 174% increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease, sitting for 8 hours a day has also been linked to high blood pressure, susceptibility to anxiety and depression, and a decrease in skeletal muscle mass.

Taking regular breaks throughout the day for gentle movement and light stretching can significantly reduce these risks.

Join Mindful Movement coach Tara Good for a bi-weekly yoga session. In this 25 minute class, we will explore light stretching and mobility exercises specifically designed to be a mid-work break, focused on countering the effects of sitting at a desk all day. Classes are from 3-4pm.

Join Workplace One and Artist Jenny Tellier for "The Session". In this workshop you will be guided through a still life drawing session with the aim to shift from linear and logical thinking into intuitive and insightful thought patterns. Linear thinking dominates our everyday thoughts as we make decisions to move our businesses forward. If you’ve been struggling with blocks in your biz, this workshop will make the space needed for creative shifts in perspective as making art is one of the only activities that shifts the brain completely into the right hemisphere. Thinking with your right brain can then allow problems to be seen and grasped in unique ways. In this workshop you will learn simple drawing techniques that can easily be integrated in a daily routine to maintain optimal productivity.

Join us for this workshop and then enjoy some refreshments and networking in our Queen West lounge.

All materials provided. No art experience required.
