YoPO – movement and mindfulness for people with no time.

We provide resources to help busy people improve wellbeing through yoga inspired movement and mindfulness practices that are quick, easy, accessible and enjoyable.

Many practices can be done in one minute or less and can be easily built onto existing routines eg while waiting for the kettle to boil, for a document to print or after a difficult phone call. With this in mind, we envisage that the practices can be sprinkled through the day, wherever you are and without specialist clothing or equipment. If more time is available, we offer practices of 5, 10 or 20 minutes in length.

There is no “right” or “wrong” way of performing any of the practices, as long as you are mindful of your own body and always move within your own range of comfort. The most important aspect of any yoga practice is to fully concentrate on what you are doing, focus on the breath and notice any physical sensations or changes in mental state. That way you can create a personalized practice for your unique mind, body and circumstances.

Our vision

 

…is to bring accessible yoga to busy people in a way that fits seamlessly into daily lives and supports physical and mental wellbeing.

We do this by providing access to content including illustrations, animations and videos, all with explanatory text and by organizing this content into sequences and courses aligned with wellbeing themes.

We hope that our customers will see the content provided as a tool kit that can be drawn on to provide short or micro moments of movement and mindfulness in a way that is unique to the needs of individual and their circumstances on any given day.

Helen Withers

Founder

Helen is a qualified accountant with many years of experience in the insurance sector, including a business start up – and so has spent a huge amount of time working at a desk in demanding roles.

“I’ve been a yoga practitioner for many years, and as a desk worker tried to attend classes regularly and also went on a number of yoga retreats in the UK and abroad. In daily life it was always difficult to find the time to fit yoga in between work and home responsibilities and although the classes and retreats were enjoyable, it was difficult to maintain the benefits when back in the real world. I found the need to remain static at the desk for long periods of time increasingly challenging as I got older and I also suffered from debilitating effects of stress and overwhelm from time to time. I gradually began to experiment with integrating short or micro yoga breaks into daily life to support my wellbeing and found that if I was consistent this could have a huge impact. The YoPO content is built around the elements of this practice model that I, and friends and family testers who are non yogis have found most accessible and effective”
