Dorset Chamber is hosting a morning yoga networking event in March to encourage business people to consider wellbeing and offer a different environment to meet others from the business community.

Renowned yoga instructor Pip Taverner will be leading the session at the Yoga Studio on Ringwood Road in Poole on Wednesday, March 13 from 8.30 to 9.20am. Open to members and non-members of DCCI as well as those who have never tried yoga or those more experienced, the session will set up the day with easy to follow postures, breathing exercises and meditation techniques.

Liz Willingham, DCCI President said: “I am passionate about helping to highlight the importance of supporting mental health and wellbeing in Dorset’s businesses on all levels. Both management and their teams equally need to prioritise their health when pressures are high. Yoga with the Dorset Chamber is an alternative to the ‘traditional’ networking event, and reflects how many are now doing business – the ‘doing business on the golf course’ approach – this is a 40 minute stress bust whilst a great opportunity to chat with like-minded business people.

“There is still a stigma about discussing mental health issues and the workplace is often a major cause of individual stress. I am pleased that awareness in increasing but we must do all we can. I hope our business community will join me in March for the session; I defy anyone, whether they’re a yoga bunny or new to it, not to leave this session and feel pumped, ready for the day ahead!”

The yoga session will finish at 9.20am, where attendees will then have an opportunity to network, whilst enjoying a fresh and healthy juice provided by Blue Orange Juice bar.
