The mountains are calling. From our desks we can see the Alps changing by the seasons, offering adventure, fitness and relaxation. In our daily lives we can't always escape to the mountains. We believe that practising yoga regularly can give you a similar fix and help you to be your best at work more of the time. We work with companies to provide yoga as a tool for improved decision-making, creative collaboration and reaching bigger and better goals.

Escape to your mat.

Who

 Alice Rose Elliott.

Alice Rose Elliott.

 

Alice Rose Elliott is Founding Yoga Teacher at Alpen Rose Yoga. Alice is originally from London and has been living in Innsbruck since the beginning of 2018. 

"My parents met in a yoga class standing on their heads and I started practising Iyengar yoga as soon as I could. I qualified as a Yoga Alliance teacher in 2013. The best yoga classes allow room to grow and play. 

 

I have 15 years experience as a Sustainability Expert - working to make businesses a force for good and co-creating social innovation.  In Alpen Rose Yoga my yoga teaching and business experience come alive together. 

 

You can also find me in the hills and the city on my bike with my two year old in the trailer behind me." 

 
After Alpen Rose Yoga lunchtime class I didn’t have my usual afternoon low that slows down my work. I felt really energised, fresh, and I could concentrate. The Yoga affected my work immediately after the class in a very positive way.

Why do yoga at work?

Be a better business

Smarter businesses are using yoga to help keep their employees in tip top condition and the best are using it to create better business.

It’s one thing setting up a weekly yoga session to develop flexibility and strength, to calm the mind and enliven the body. It’s another to recognise that doing yoga at work can improve your postural and mental wellbeing and therefore your confidence and approach at work.

Your physical movements may influence and shape your moods and thoughts, according to a theory referred to as ‘embodied cognition’. By taking a minute to change your expression or posture, you may affect the way you feel; therefore the way in which you work.

Being our best selves more often

Practising yoga regularly can be a tool for learning about yourself and the commitment to showing up on your mat to reflect, let go and actively move through tricky business problems can help us to perform at our best more of the time.

Standing tall and physically lifting and opening your posture sends a message both internally and externally that you are engaged and know what's going on.

For groups or project teams doing yoga together can create a powerful shared experience that encourages targeted reflection, more self-awareness and creative visioning. 

 

As a former professional athlete I have all sort of niggles, aches and pains but Alice was able to adapt certain poses for me to make sure I got the most from the class. Physically I found that my posture and flexibility improved but mentally I also saw the benefits. The classes gave me time to switch off and refocus, leaving me feeling refreshed.
Alice is down to earth, warm and has a genuine passion for helping others.

What we offer

 
Alice led a yoga class on Thursday lunchtimes at our offices. When you are sat in front of a computer all week you can start to feel lethargic and fatigued by Thursday. Alice’s yoga class would always have an instant impact, energising the staff and renewing focus to close out the week. We noticed a marked improvement in the mood of staff members and the productivity of the team as a whole.

morning, lunchtime & aprés yoga

We provide morning, lunchtime and after-work yoga to suit the needs of your staff. We adjust the sessions to suit the time of day. From energising to revitalising to restorative, we aim to cultivate regular practice in order to encourage postural confidence and mental clarity.

teams

Do you have an internal project group, department or team who struggle to move tasks forward or deal with particular challenges who could benefit from coming together and refocusing?

Teams will be invited to reflect on challenges and explore positive ways forward in between yoga sessions. The sessions can last anything between an hour and a full day and can be weekly throughout a set project timeline or one-off.

one to one

Senior management roles are known to be lonely. Your employees are influenced by the things you say and do, but also non-verbal body language communicating interpersonal attitudes and feelings.

Regular one to one sessions whereby challenges are reflected on and positive outcomes explored can support those in leadership roles.

We can also offer sessions for the whole senior management team, regularly or to coincide with strategic meetings. 

30 Minute revitalise

For big groups, conferences and away-days. Re-awaken with a shoes-off, stand-up session of stretching breathing and reimagining.

Alice is an experienced, compassionate and patient Yoga instructor. As a beginner, I learnt a great deal in Alice’s classes. The principles she taught have been instilled within me and I know I benefit more greatly from the practice of Yoga based on Alice’s teaching. I left in a peaceful, calm state yet, I could certainly feel the benefits for the days following.
