ABOUT WORKING WELLNESS
Make a healthy mind and body a priority for your company, your team, and you! Working Wellness delivers yoga, meditation, pilates, barre and nutrition classes in-person and virtually.
Companies are integrating wellness activities into their day-to-day strategy and overall corporate culture. Happy and healthy employees have proven to result in better productivity, lower healthcare costs, and less turnover. Working Wellness can bring your employees live virtual or in-person classes so they can connect with each other in a healthy way.
We can create a complete corporate wellness plan that encompasses a variety of yoga, meditation, and nutrition classes, or we can schedule a monthly pop-up class as a team building event. Or, you can opt for a day retreat for your company hosted by Working Wellness at Rushton Conservation Center and Rushton Woods Preserve, a beautiful property in a stunning setting in Newtown Square, Pennsylvania.
Working Wellness classes and events are a creative way to provide employees with an option to feel relaxed, refreshed, and rejuvenated together.
SPORTS TEAM WELLNESS
Working Wellness can deliver the same services to youth sports teams! Give your team a competitive edge with a Working Wellness yoga and mindfulness meditation experience customized for your particular sport. We can come to your training facility, practice at one of our local studio partners, or create a virtual experience.
There’s no doubt that young athletes receive a myriad of benefits from practicing yoga. Building strength and flexibility, gaining body awareness and control, improving balance and coordination, and learning how to use breath to neutralize the nervous system are just some of the advantages to incorporating yoga into a training program.
Yoga can also be a key component in helping to prevent injuries by strengthening and stretching muscles, ligaments, and tendons and working to improve joint function and stability.
We recommend incorporating a brief mindfulness meditation element into any yoga class for athletes. It can enhance mental focus, improve concentration, and decrease anxiety.
INDIVIDUAL & GROUP WELLNESS
We offer private, semi-private, and group yoga, pilates, meditation, and nutrition classes. These classes are specifically designed to meet an individual's or group's intentions and goals.

WORKING WELLNESS MEDITATION
Schedule a time out for your team where they will practice focusing their mind and training their attention with our experienced mindfulness facilitators. Our meditation instructors teach a variety of classes and we will work with you to determine the appropriate class or program to meet your meditation goals.
Guided Mindfulness - Offering foundational mindfulness practices through guided meditation.
Anchor Practice - This introductory guided meditation introduces the basics of mindfulness practice and offers students the opportunity to develop individualized anchors for attention including focusing on sounds, the body, and the breath.
Home Practice How To's - Developing a mindfulness practice is a lot easier when it feels comfortable. It helps to have some instruction around the kinds of options for postures (while sitting, standing, or lying down) that can make practice more sustainable. This class offers guidance for posture possibilities so that students can explore what works best for them.
Formal vs. Informal Practices - As students become more comfortable with their meditation practice, they may start to notice feeling more present and focused (or mindful!) in daily life. This class defines the difference between formal practice (time dedicated to meditation on purpose) and informal practice (practicing mindfulness on-the-go) and how these two ways of practicing support each other.
Body Scan Meditation - This meditation offers instruction on an essential component of mindfulness practice. Access deep relaxation through this guided body scan. Turning our attention to the body as an anchor can assist us in reducing mind wandering while also aiding us in releasing muscle tension.
Stress Reduction Practice - A common belief about meditation is that the experience itself is relaxing. While a lot of the time this is true, it is also true that much of the time our minds or bodies are working with some kind of stress and the experience can be challenging. This class helps students work with difficult emotions and physical sensations in such a way that this practice can not only transform the meditation experience, but life outside of it as well.
Mindful Self-Compassion Practice - The inner critic can be really loud sometimes, and while a little bit of critical self-judgment can help steer us in a more productive direction, too much of it can get in the way of our feelings of competency and our effectiveness. Researchers studying Mindful Self Compassion practices have shown that they increase motivation, boost self-worth, and foster resilience.
