Employee Engagement & Well-Being

Employee well-being is essential to success in today’s competitive environment. Creating and enhancing well-being is gaining importance in the workplace. Those companies that care how employees occupy their time and engage in their jobs will have a competitive edge. Recent Gallup data (August 2009 Employee Engagement Index) demonstrate how your inspired employee costs less to insure, boosts performance, and drives the organization forward. By contrast, actively disengaged employees can sour the work environment for clients and coworkers.
Cathy Woods, National Life Skills Retreat Leader and Long-time Yoga Teacher, will guide your staff into a stress-melting experience while offering practical skills for life and the workplace.

This program helps participants find balance, harmony and create healthy habits that lead to greater personal, professional performance & growth. Often we find ourselves exhausted with the pressures of our busy lives. When we learn to manage our energy in a more integrative way, we free up our energy for better use, enhancing our well-being. When we can experience our livelihood as “service” instead of “labor” it simply becomes more joyful, fulfilling, successful, and an extension of whom we truly are.

We will explore: Tips for challenging times; improved communication; empowering intentions; cues in your day to help stay centered and balanced; energy management; the “importance of stillness” as a counter balance to our busy lives; breath work; relaxation; meditation; yoga.

  • Deliberate and positive communication

I have had the good fortune to be able to attend Cathy Woods’ programs during the past year. found yoga to be a practice that helped me during my medical training, many years ago. relaxation and breathing techniques help during difficult situations, and can help one stay focused at such times. not only teaches these skills, she incorporates life-skill topics as she teaches. She has the beautiful ability to do this both on and off the yoga mat. One leaves her classes feeling more balanced, not only physically but in a happier, more balanced state of mind. allows the student to bring that balance with them wherever they go, whether it be to a medical practice, a corporate board room or a classroom. benefits found in yoga reach far beyond the postures, and Cathy teaches one to be aware of this gift.

My principles of teaching are to assist the students in creating an overall healthy lifestyle, helping them to embark on their own inner journey to Peace, Joy, and Wellness. My style of teaching can be easily understood and applied, regardless of age, health, lifestyle or spiritual belief. As a versatile and intuitive teacher, I have presented yoga and life skills programs at community events, colleges, corporate groups, retreats, and resorts/spas for the last two decades.
