  • Wellbeing Programme

Join us for an early morning wellbeing session you can do without leaving your desk or chair! Hosted by the Insurance Institute of London in association with Well With Samantha.

The days are starting to get longer and brighter, so what better way to start the day than with a re-energising yoga practice from your desk?

The daily grind of sitting at a desk hunched over a computer can lead to increased pressure on your neck, shoulders and spine. This yoga session will incorporate specific moves to minimise the negative impacts of home/office working, improve posture, release tension and leave you de-stressed and ready for a proactive day ahead.

Samantha will lead you through a gentle seated sequence of moves to help you reconnect to your breath and body.

All levels are welcome, from beginners to experienced practitioners.

You will need the following:

  • A laptop or screen large enough to see Samantha
  • A chair with space on either side
  • A clear space to practice, free of obstacles and (if possible!) interruptions
  • A bottle of water

Give yourself plenty of time to set up, log on and get comfortable before the class starts.

Due to the interactivity of the event, places are limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
