The Yoga4NHS programme is an evidence-based wellness and wellbeing course to equip staff with a toolkit of mind-body practices to reduce stress/anxiety, increase resilience and reduce burnout. The programme is accredited by the Royal College of General Practitioners, and builds on the success of the Yoga4Health social prescribing programme offered to patients, and was requested by healthcare leaders to support staff wellbeing and help to address the problem of high rates of sickness absence. Yoga4NHS has sustainability built into the programme by creating a network of cascade trainers of wellbeing practices that staff can share with each other. Yoga4NHS is a 6-week course of one-hour sessions delivered in-person in the workplace, or online. \
The next Yoga4NHS staff wellbeing programme will be LIVE and online on Zoom on Wednesday evenings 7-8pm from Wednesday 10th January 2024. The cost is usually £49 per staff member – HALF PRICE JANUARY OFFER ONLY £24.50. The class will be led by Paul Fox, CEO of the Yoga In Healthcare Alliance and one of the creators of this programme. Your NHS manager may agree to pay this fee on your behalf, and as it is a RCoGP Continuing Professional Development accredited course you may be able to offset the cost against tax.
