The relationship goal between your corporate organisation and Full Circle is to boost happiness, creativity, innovation & productivity in every member of the workforce.
Many modern corporate organisations are now embracing regular yoga sessions as an integral part of an inhouse wellbeing program. Research has shown that investing in your staff with a program that enhances their physical and mental health will provide a positive return on investment, keeping your staff both physically and mentally fit.
Our goal is to minimise workplace stress, increase productivity and enhance staff morale with tailored and workplace specific yoga programs. Our yoga practice is primarily hatha yoga, practice that is suitable for all abilities, focusing on stretching and breathing techniques.

“We have had the opportunity on many occasions to engage with Deb in a professional way with the students at Geelong Grammar School. She has provided many diverse opportunities for students to learn the practice of Yoga and Meditation and explore their many health benefits. She has engaged in full day workshops, camps and retreats. The most significant work she has undertaken involves our Year 12 students and the improved ability to concentrate, focus and prepare for academic work following her sessions. In our work at Geelong Grammar School and in particular, Positive Education, we regard regular mindfulness and meditation as a necessary part of a flourishing life – both for staff andstudents alike. Deb has been able to facilitate such sessions on many occasions for our community and the response is always exceptionally positive”

“Over the past 7 years, I have engaged in regular Yoga sessions with Deb as a way to help manage my injuries and connect with a mindfulness and meditation practice. Deb has been an invaluable addition to my health care plan. I have managed to remedy certain injuries and maintain a sense of calm and balance in a demanding
and constant workplace. I also had the privilege to travel with Deb Moore and Full Circle to Bali for an overseas Yoga retreat and thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to deepen my practice and facilitate somewell-needed ‘time out’. On a personal level, I regard my weekly practice as a necessary elementto ensure a balanced lifestyle and proactive approach to my health and wellbeing.”
The Faculty of Arts and Education, Deakin University sought the professional services of Full Circle Health and Exercise to develop and run Yoga classes as part of our Health and Wellbeing Program for academic and professional staff in the Faculty. Full Circle Health and Exercise have also played a big part at our Professional Staff Development days where they present very informative workshops on ‘Health and Wellbeing Practices for Stress Management in the Workplace’. Feedback received is extremely positive and staff were enthusiastic to put what they learnt into practice. As part of our ongoing Health and Wellbeing Program, Full Circle Health and Exercise facilitate blocks of yoga sessions for all staff and given the success and positive feedback, ongoing yoga sessions are now held as part of our regular wellbeing program. I would like to thank Full Circle Health and Exercise for their enthusiasm and professionalism and look forward to our ongoing working relationship”
“Debbie and her team at Full Circle, provide twice weekly yoga classes to our employees and contractors in our Wellbeing room at the Geelong refinery, as well as specialist classes on demand. She has run specific classes for men, which focused solely on pelvic floor, control and abdominal strength conditioning and all the classes are both individual and highly specialized. In addition to this Debbie has also provided stress and meditation classes to the refinery leadership team.
Debbie excudes serenity, wellbeing and peacefulness and I regularly receive messages and emails of how the yoga sessions have impacted on the physical and mental wellbeing of staff and changed lives. I believe there is no bigger compliment or recommendation larger than this that I can offer. I would not hesitate to recommend Debbie and her team to any business in any capacity”
Why introduce yoga programs within your organisation?
Where are the sessions held?
For employees that are time limited or finding it increasingly difficult to create that work/life balance, having yoga sessions held at your workplace, can prove a simpler solution for them and can be the little nudge they need to transform their lifestyle.
What are the benefits of yoga practice?
What are the benefits to your organisation?
Reduced worker’s compensation claims – Stress-related WorkCover claims account for almost 30% of all WorkCover claims and are about twice as expensive as other claims. It may also reduce claims for muscular and joint problems which can be prevented and alleviated with workplace yoga.
Team work and staff relations – When people are stressed at work, or overloaded and fatigued, emotions are much quicker to surface and this can have a direct impact on working relationships, tempers can flare leading to uncooperative, less cohesive teams which are bad for productivity!
Higher productivity – All of the factors mentioned above, plus the fact that staff have less clarity of focus in decision making when they’re over-stressed. Putting in place effective stress management strategies and programs such as yoga at work will increase productivity and improve your bottom line.
Higher staff morale – Reducing stress in the workplace means your employees are happier overall, with the added benefit that staff feel better about themselves when they have an exercise routine. Happy staff are effective staff!!
