Hello, my name is Sandy Naimou. Up until very recently I was offering Yoga classes at General Motors for 7-years. Something I loved to hear from those that attended regularly was how important their practice was in the workday. Some would come to work that day just so that they could get their practice in. Some struggled to get their time in, others pushed through and made it happen regularly.
I made this course because I know first-hand how important it really is to take meaningful breaks, from my own experience and from the experience of others. Research supports this lived experience.
These days, now that I'm teaching mostly from home, I sit at a desk for much of the day, much more than before. Before I committed to teaching Yoga from part to full-time in 2015, I worked in many settings. From retail, to the office, to travelling office, to a commercial kitchen, and farmer's markets, I've experienced the mundane and the chaotic and everything in between. What I've found through the years is that it seems like taking a meaningful break went against the flow of the work schedule. It doesn't have to be that way, but it does take effort on our parts to take care of ourselves and create the time. Offering ourselves time and following through makes a difference, not just in our own lives but in the lives of those around us.
Offer yourself this time, receive it wholeheartedly, and you will have much more to give!
I look forward to taking meaningful breaks together.
