No, your eyes do not deceive you - you are seeing our showroom transformed into a yoga studio!

Staff at JCB Medway Volkswagen took part in a special team building and staff welfare initiative on Monday evening. Once the showroom was closed, part of it was transformed into a yoga and meditation studio, with mats, tea lights, incense & relaxing music, creating a relaxed, zen atmosphere. Anyone who is a follower of yoga will know how relaxing it can be and how it can help dissolve the tensions and stresses of the day, promoting a calm mind and supple body.

The session was set up as part of an initiative to help staff deal with a stressful workload and allow some calm in the day. It also served as a great way of team building and taking time to appreciate fellow team members. The facilitator, Hannah, made all staff feel at ease as many of them were nervous, not having done this type of thing before. Staff discussed stress and its affect on the mind and body, then learned how yoga and mindfulness can help overcome it.

Results appear to be amazing - yes, those guys do have both feet off the floor!
