What is BAM?
It’s a simple, yet powerful set of exercises, based on traditional and modern modalities such as yoga, tai chi, mindfulness and breath science, that can be practiced anytime, anywhere, in a few minutes - in your office cubicle, at home, etc. Parts of it can even be done in line at the grocery store, in the car, or on the bus - and nobody will even know you are doing it! These exercises have a lot of physical, mental and emotional benefit and can even change your perspective, reduce stress and simply - make your day a little, or a lot, better!
You will be surprised at how effective this program is – because it is built on a few basic, but surprisingly overlooked, biological principles that relate to how our bodies, and particularly our nervous systems, are working, every second of the day, for better . . . or worse. It’s not all new knowledge though. People have been practicing stress-management through breathing and movement for thousands of years! As a yoga instructor, I have seen the benefits of these very simple, powerful tools many times.
Who will benefit from the BAM practice?
sit or stand in one place for long periods of time
(excessive sitting is now being called ‘the new smoking’)
struggle to work with healthy posture
are 'reacting' rather than 'responding' to situations
are challenged to be active outside of the work environment
don't have much time right now to have a daily wellbeing practice
are not aware of the amazing benefits of simple, mindful breathing
could use a little more energy at work and home
hit the 2pm 'naptime' energy wall every day
would like to relieve soreness and stiffness in the body and improve circulation
can use an efficient tool to help manage stressful situations on-the-spot
want to supplement other wellbeing activities such as yoga, pilates, walking, gym, etc.
very simply - anyone would enjoy feeling better every day!
There is a good reason why many of the world's most progressive organizations, such as GOOGLE, are offering science-based, mindfulness training to optimize wellbeing and effectiveness - because they have seen the benefits for individuals, the organization and the world beyond the workplace.
The average day can challenge our physical and emotional wellbeing. No matter what you do or where you work, your day is fraught with so many demands and situations that are beyond your control. Whether you are an administrator, a nurse, a mechanic, a project manager, a restaurant server, a busy mom or dad, or a graphic designer - we all share similar daily challenges and suffer the same impacts on our physical, emotional and mental wellbeing.
But . . you can do something to help manage stress
and have a better day.
In just a few minutes - anytime, anywhere, with no special clothing, equipment or even much space to do it - without sweating, being upside down or laying on the floor - you are on your way!
And more good news . . . ongoing support!
As a BAM Member, you will have ongoing complimentary access to social media support to help you carry on with these great practices - I'll be your biggest booster!
How do you arrange a visit?
I will travel to your location at a convenient time to teach the program to you or your group. You will need to schedule one hour and have a fairly quiet space where everyone can sit comfortably. That's all! There are no special requirements. You will wear your everyday clothing and will sit or stand/move for the entire program. You or your group will receive personal instruction, handy reference material and access to the ongoing, online support.
The BAM program is priced per individual. The initial one-hour training session is the foundation of the program, and will give you all the basics you need to carry on with your practice. But the really great value is in the ongoing support, to keep you practicing and give you all kinds of knowledge and inspiration to help you enhance your ‘every day’. The training can be delivered to individuals or groups of unlimited size.

What's unique and innovative about this wellbeing offering? Participants won't need lots of time, a special space or any equipment to practice - in only seconds or minutes per session. In fact, it can be done in place, anywhere, anytime. The program is designed for people of all body types and abilities, with no floor exercises, heavy cardio, extreme stretching or weight-bearing. At the initial one-hour training that could be done in a ‘Lunch and Learn’ session or anytime, I'll personally teach participants how to do the simple techniques for maximum benefit.
As a certified yoga instructor, I see how people reap the benefits of effective, mindful breathing and movement all the time. Now, I am bringing those benefits, in a convenient, effective format, to our occupational community!
This training is practical, economical, achievable and easy for you to deliver to your workforce. Simply provide one hour, a space and the learners – I'll come to your location, whether it's a boardroom, lunchroom, warehouse or anywhere inside (or comfortable outside) and fairly quiet, and do the rest! You can pass on room rentals and travel expenses. For one initial, per-person fee and hour of training, your employees will receive lifelong knowledge and this valuable skillset to carry on with the program at their own level of interest, at work and at home.
The free online support space is designed to maximize your investment by keeping people interested and engaged. You'll have employees who have a new tool to help them feel better, think more clearly, are more energetic, handle acute stressful events more effectively, manage chronic stress better, are more comfortable physically and have more energy every day.
This program directly addresses some common challenges such as reduced flexibility, stiffness, low energy, sore joints, poor circulation, overwhelm, anxiety and all kinds of common, everyday stressors.
If you are an employer, you are aware of the cost of chronic stress. High stress levels can mean decreased effectiveness, creativity and efficiency, low workplace morale, decreased productivity, increased absenteeism, staff burnout, general ill-being of people in the workplace, physical strain from sitting, standing, etc. But, this is one handy item for your workforce wellbeing toolbox!
In short, this innovative program is sustainable, safe, practical, effective, easy to implement and economical. It's a great way to give your employees, and your organization, the gift of improved wellbeing every day. How? With breath . . . awareness . . and movement – BAM!
