Vitality Boost for office life

by Deddou from POP UP YOGA


Recharge & Feel good

It's summer! So my advice to you: take advantage of the sunny weather and go outside as much as possible during your work day. In Yoga we want to raise our "prana", which means life-energy. 

Here I share 3 tips with you on how to feel good and raise your prana:


1 - Walk bare-foot in the grass

I love this one. So simple and yet grounding and relaxing. Walk slowly and really feel the ground underneath you. And maybe do a lunch pick-nick out there in the grass. Just don't forget your sunscreen.

2 - Add prana boosting herbs & fruits into your water

Instead of drinking plain water, add some fresh rosemary, mint or basil into your water. For some extra refreshment combine it with the juice of either 1 lemon or 1 orange. You can prepare it in the morning and refill your waterbottle during the whole day.

3 - more vitality through fresh air

Make it a point to take a few conscious breaths while you're outdoors. This increases your vitality and might even give you a fresh perspective & therefore new ideas for how to tackle upcoming tasks.

About Deddou

After completing her first of many Yoga Teacher Trainings in New York, Deddou Burkhard started her own yoga classes under the label POP UP YOGA in Switzerland in 2012.

Today Deddou is known as a creative and passionate yoga teacher (800h YTT) in the local yoga community. She teaches yoga, meditation and mindfulness under the label POP UP YOGA in and around Zürich.

Rising numbers of employees are suffering from elevated stress-levels, that lead to chronic exhaustion, poor digestion and a diminished quality of life. The practice of yoga offers us a variety of time-tested tools to better cope with stress and the challenging aspects of everyday life. In my Office Yoga classes & Corporate Mindfulness workshops I love to introduce easy & simple yoga and mindfulness practices that have long-lasting, positive effect.
