"Yoga with Queen Street Yoga instructors is a fun and energizing way to get away from my desk and recharge my body and mind!" - Eric Maki, Software Developer, Google Kitchener

Yoga is becoming increasingly popular in the workplace. Many companies now recognize the value of yoga and are offering classes to their employees as part of corporate wellness programs during the workday.

Queen Street Yoga offers recurring classes and one-time events, either at your office or in our studio. Our classes, taught by experienced teachers, can be tailored to suit the specific needs of your staff. Contact us for details.

Types of Yoga Classes for the Workplace

The following are examples of the types of classes we offer. We are also happy to tailor our classes to suit the specific needs of your workplace.

Yoga Basics

  • Active yoga sequenced at a moderate pace to improve overall strength and flexibility while decreasing tension.
  • Emphasis on improved alignment and relief for chronic areas of tension for desk workers, such as the hips, lower back, shoulders, and neck.
  • Each class ends with guided deep breathing and relaxation to help your staff return to work refreshed.
  • Appropriate for beginners and intermediate students.

Yoga Flow

  • Flow at a steady pace through a sequence of floor, balancing, and standing postures designed to help unwind tension.
  • Emphasis on mindful movement, core awareness, deep breathing, and building strength and stamina in transitions.
  • Appropriate for those with 2+ months yoga experience.

Mindfulness & Relaxation

  • This class is designed to help your staff deepen their breathing, improve mental clarity and focus, and restore the nervous system.
  • Move through gentle stretches, simple movements, mindfulness exercises, and end with guided deep relaxation.
  • Appropriate for everyone, including beginners and those with injuries.


Benefits of Regular Yoga

Regular yoga practice can help:

  • relieve stress
  • enhance focus and productivity
  • build workplace community
  • address aches and pains such as back and neck tension.

Yoga classes can also include tips for better ergonomics and alignment while working at a desk, as well as suggestions for 2-minute stretch breaks that can be incorporated into even the busiest workday.


"At-work yoga classes with QSY instructors have been a key part of my work week since 2012. The instructors do an amazing job of counteracting posture issues common in people who have desk jobs. Yoga has been critical for managing the head, neck, and shoulder issues that used to cause me persistent headaches. My hip and low back issues from prolonged sitting have also completely gone away. Yoga is also a great way to manage stress and get my energy levels up. I have been able to significantly improve my physical and mental health since I started working at Google, and yoga has been a critical part of that equation. Not to mention fun!"  - Eric Maki, Software Developer, Google Kitchener
