You do not need to have the camera on, however for new people to the online sessions I recommend that you have the camera on for at least the first few sessions so that I can offer postural support if needed via email. If using the camera you will need to setup your computer and camera so that it can show your whole body sitting on a yoga mat. A side ways angle is usually the best. Please make sure you are not too far away and that there is adequate lighting.
Each session you will need the ZOOM meeting number.
We will use the one meeting number for the 6 sessions. Please plan to login 5-10mins before each class start time so as to prepare and allow space for any technical issues that may come up.
IF NEW TO THESE CLASSES DOWNLOAD FUZE
ZOOM is the platform that we connect to for these classes which is very easy to use and is free for participants. If this is your first time participating in these classes using ZOOM, please make sure you successfully download. By clicking on the meeting link your computer should automatically download the application software for you so just follow the prompts. It should only take a few minutes to do this and then once downloaded it will stay on your computer. The ZOOM meeting link for the live classes is posted in the Course Login page.
The Course dates and times are scheduled in Australian NSW AEDT times.
Please check your own time-zone by using the time converter
I recommend that if your schedule allows for you to attend the live sessions, then you commit to this. However if you are unable, the sessions will be recorded and available up to 7 days after each live session. These will be posted within 30mins of the live class on the Course Login page.
We offer people & organisations simple & clear well-being tools and services that make sense, are simple to implement and support staff wellbeing. Get in touch to discuss how we may be able to support your organisation with wellbeing classes, workshops, webinars or a team building event to connect your people.
With the increasing demands in the workplace, & the rise of ill health, it is becoming even more important to make sure that our well-being is given the attention that is so needed. Our bodies are a great marker of truth for what is going on with us physically, emotionally and mentally. Everyone knows that self-care is a key ingredient to wellbeing but do not give it the priority that is needed to be well and vital. This is why so many are experiencing anxiety, stress, depression, exhaustion, sleep problems, weight problems, mental health issues, pain, and the list goes on.
Empowering people with the tools and knowledge to look after their own health brings with it long term sustainability that not only benefits the individual's personal development and health, but ultimately their work productivity. Incorporating self-care practices into our day can assist with reducing stress and tension and increasing energy levels.
For example Meditation and Yoga have proven to be very effective well-being & stress management tools in the workplace which is why a growing number of organizations are including these health services for their staff. Staying connected to our body offers a steadiness, presence and clarity that makes an enormous difference to how how we can feel and how our days flow.
A very heartfelt thanks again
It has been a real pleasure to meet and work with you all

Workplace Well-being Programs
Well-being programs for staff can be organised for small or large groups. Or for a more personalised approach to self-care, complementary therapy treatments are deeply nurturing and supportive to support the body and thus our health. We can bring a team of therapists to your workplace to offer treatments for your staff or you can come to our venue. We also offer many of our services online.
Examples for both groups and individuals include:
Relaxation & Remedial Massage
Yoga & Body Awareness classes
Gentle Exercise Classes
Examples of Team Building workshops include:
Voice & Communication workshops
Team Play workshops
It was a great team building activity & the feedback has been fantastic
Maxine, JUSTICE HEALTH
That Saturday was an undoubted success is without question. That we did very well likewise. But that we did so with the focus, teamwork, and fun we did was never an inevitability. I know that whilst we were (are) an enthusiastic bunch of amateurs, we were one which achieved what we did because of the gentle, yet underlying strong guidance, encouragement, empathy, happiness, genuine enjoyment both of the task at hand and other people’s company provided by you Marika, with Michelle, Nicci, and Jack.
As well as thanks, congratulations also. You must be very proud to see all your hard work turn into something really great. As professionals dealing with amateurs, such a task could easily turn to frustration, however, you certainly delivered an excellent result in a pretty short time frame, with a pretty low starting point. A very heartfelt thanks again. It has been a real pleasure to meet and work with you all.

Having marvelled at her extraordinary performance work and her commanding stage presence it was a pleasure to get to know her better. Marika is a remarkable person, mature, insightful, clear about her goals and her values. She is resourceful, energetic & highly responsible.
I have no hesitation in supporting Marika in whatever she chooses to do - for I feel confident that she will continue to be outstanding.

I would like to pass on my personal thanks for your assistance during the production on Eyewitness News & Good Morning Australia. Everyone at Channel 10 Sydney was pleased with the final result, an opinion reflected by all Network Ten Stations.
It was due in part to your ability to select good talent and arrange a realistic shooting schedule. Knowing that a television crew can be demanding, you managed to satisfy those demands in a very professional and efficient manner. For this we are truly grateful.
Alan Hynd, #10 - Eyewitness News
