Promoting a Balanced Workplace through Remote Yoga
Balance is important in association management work - literally and figuratively! For this reason, the AMC Source team spent some time during the busy end-of-year season to re-balance as a team through remote yoga.
On the morning of December 21st, the team was joined by yoga instructor, Michele Carrión Yopps of Michele Yoga & Wellness, LLC. Michele is a native New Yorker who aims to encourage students to fuel their creative core within the boundaries of a safe practice environment, and re-connect with their authentic selves via asana, meditation and breath. After twenty years as a media-marketing professional, Michele uses her business savvy and solid interpersonal skills to cross over into the healing realm that yoga provides. "We are going to create a little bit of mind and body awareness," Michele shared as she began the session, "we love the holidays, but with the holidays comes all kinds of stress as well - from the office, from your family, from yourself, from everything else that is going on in life - and just like at every other time in the year, we want to manage that. And we can do that. Stress for us is actually a good thing, it is how it is that we react and how we manage it that is super important.
Genuine regard for others is a core value of AMC Source's. Taking time as a team to care for our mental and physical health is an important part of that fundamental commitment to the well-being of others. Through self-care activities and healthy workplace practices, AMC Source demonstrates the belief that excellent service to our clients begins with a happy and healthy team.
