  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!

THIS WEEK - Our Newest Addition To The Wellbeing Center
Skill Practice: Vulnerability + Perfection
July 17, 2020, 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM PDT (4:30 PM - 5:30 PM PDT)

Living a life we can wake up every morning and be proud of takes practice. Defined, intentional practice. If you're like me, the permission to be vulnerable: uncertain, at risk, or emotionally exposed, has been deemed shameful and weak since we were children. As a result, we move through life charging towards perfectionism, exceedingly afraid to fail.

We are excited to have Kim Linton join our Wellbeing Center team. Kim works with individuals and teams who want to make work modern, courageous, and intentional. She is a Brené Brown Certified Dare to Lead™ Facilitator, and provides agile, repeatable, people-positive solutions for teams. If you're a fan of , Kim's work will speak to you.

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

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.

"Alyse is wonderful! Her sessions are short, so they are easy to fit into a busy day. My body always feels better after following her moves and my mood is always a little lighter too. Thanks Alyse!"

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!

"This event changed the whole outlook on my day! I joined not knowing what to expect, and immediately felt connected to Fred and the group even though I didn’t know anyone. I enjoyed the body movements and music, and ability to be myself with no judgements. Thanks for organizing this, and thanks to the host for being a wonderful person."

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