With ‘Connect Through Yoga’, we pair businesses

with charities, and bring yoga to:

Yoga can have a powerful impact on a person’s life. 

 

How do we do it?

We make it work for you! We could either set up regular yoga sessions at a time that suits you and your team, or we could offer a one-off session at your wellbeing event or away day. Sessions could be online or in person.

 

Alongside this, your participation provides sponsorship

to run tailored yoga classes for a group with special needs or specific medical difficulties.

The detail

Being part of Umbrella Yoga and 'Connect Through Yoga'

By joining Umbrella Yoga, you will be bringing the benefits of yoga to both your staff and to a group of people with additional physical or mental needs.

Your package will include:

  • A regular online yoga session provided for your staff. This can be recorded and provided to staff members at a later time if they are unable to attend the session.

  • The sponsorship of a charity service or day centre. We will deliver a regular tailored yoga class to a group with special needs or specific mental health difficulties. 

  • We will publicise your involvement on social media and also ensure the charity/service is aware that your business is making this direct contribution to their service.

If you would like updates on the progress of the group and feedback from the service, we will happily provide it.

 

What does it cost?

We can arrange one-off session if you have an event or just want to treat your staff!

 

Ideally, we ask you to commit to a longer-term arrangement, which allows us to offer continuity and consistency to your paired charity service / day centre.  We can tailor the package to your needs, but as guide: If you commit to 2-months, the cost is £125 per week (including one workplace and one charity session). If you commit to 4-months, the cost is £110 per week.

 

You have the option to increase the number of sessions / charities that you sponsor. For instance, if you sponsor two charity sessions for every one workplace session, the cost would £200 per set.
