Employee wellness: Yoga-based stress-reduction classes available

HealthPartners is excited to offer a yoga-based stress reduction class to all staff at no cost. There will be several opportunities to take this class from February through May.

Reduce stress and develop healthy and sustainable self-care practices with the help of a St. Paul-based yoga company:

  • Explore mindfulness, self-reflection, and goal-setting through yoga-based movement.
  • Learn to manage your emotions, transitions and stress
  • Discover breathing techniques to lower heart rate, reduce stress, increase lung capacity and enjoy other health benefits
  • Use yoga-based movement to deepen your connection to yourself and others while increasing your strength, flexibility and stamina
  • Learn to creatively and compassionately resolve conflicts, and make positive choices that respect and support yourself and others

Yoga mats are not required to participate, however a  limited amount of mats will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please bring your own mat if you prefer.

All classes require a pre-registration and space is limited to the first 30 people. Two classes will be offered in February at Highland Park Senior High (map).  Select your desired date to reserve your spot today.

Because of limited space, please only register for one class at this time. More locations and times will be available over the next few months to accommodate varying schedules.

A signed liability form must be filled out prior to class participation.  Please sign and bring to class if you are planning on attending.
