  WITI Wellbeing Center

Announcing new benefit for all WITI Members! - Free Wellbeing Classes

The WITI Wellbeing Center is designed to help you have a healthy approach to working at home. Classes every week day. All classes are appropriate for all levels and free to all members!

4 PM PDT - Easy Yoga To Recover From Your Day with Lotem Porat

After sitting, zooming and using your mouse and keyboard all day, treat your body to this 1/2 hour, easy yoga class to transition into your evening or wind down your day.

"The Easy Yoga class was just what I needed to help me stretch and relax after a long day at work. Moves were easy and Lotem's voice was very calming. Thanks for offering the yoga series!"

5 PM PDT - Energy Management with Alyse Hart

A 3 Week Energy Management Series - Jump in Any Time! Learn and use breath and gentle movement techniques to manage your energy during these times. These 15 minute sessions are formulated for strength, inner balance, vision and calm.

"I woke up Monday morning feeling very stiff and sore. I knew that I had a scheduled conference call at 11 am, which I expected to be somewhat difficult and unpleasant. 15 minutes with Alyse on zoom at 10 am helped with both issues. My body felt far less tense and stiff afterwards, and my mental energy got re-channeled, enabling me to take the conference call and deal with it rationally. Hooray for that energy alignment!"

12 NOON PDT - Mindfulness and Movement with Fred Sugerman

Use guided and self-initiated movement to access information, inspiration and freedom in your body and mind!

"Fred is an excellent facilitator. Moving my body in this mindful way has been very helpful to me, especially during this very stressful time where much of our outdoor activities are so limited. I LOVE his classes!!"

All classes are appropriate for all levels and free to all members!

  WITI Rewind

Unconscious Bias: Virtual Remix

WITI Columbus partnered with Dublin Economic Workforce (Dublin Reality Check) for the second year in a row to discuss unconscious bias in the workplace. This year, we added a new spin to the event. You took the survey, we played the game. Watch as the panel, moderated by Rob Richardson and Mimi Shalash tried to guess the attendee responses in a matchup between "Team WITI" versus "Team Dublin". You may be surprised at the outcome! In the second half of this virtual event, attendees were encouraged to submit questions that were discussed by the panel. We hope you enjoy the replay of the event and join us for future events!
