Enhance the health and increase the happiness of your employees by offering yoga, meditation or chair massage either in your office or at an offsite corporate retreat in beautiful Sonoma. Body Flows will work with you to create a custom program, which could include weekly, biweekly or monthly yoga, meditation classes or chair massage, or offsite events such as a team building day or multi-day retreats in Sonoma wine country or even a holiday party.
Corporate wellness programs are becoming increasingly popular as employees are working longer hours, taking fewer vacations, traveling for business more frequently, and spending many hours every day sitting at a desk, working at a computer and using their smartphones. Employees who are healthy, calm, mindful and clear-headed are more creative and productive and demonstrate greater positive energy and enthusiasm, thus enhancing the productivity and happiness of your team!
Many successful entrepreuners, business professionals and athletes have been using mindfulness, meditation and yoga for years to help them on their journey towards achieving their goals.
Corporate wellness and corporate retreats will help guide you and your colleagues towards success with a sense of mindfulness, balance, focus and fun.

We invite you and your employees and colleagues to Sonoma wine country for a day or multi-day team building retreat or offsite.
CONNECT. COLLABORATE. CREATE.
Our intention is to help you to CONNECT with yourself and each other, COLLABORATE and work more effectively with your colleagues or teammates, and CREATE team visions and action plans that you can take back to your work and lives after the retreat.
We hope you will also have fun and enjoy taking time away from the office.
"Sally led us through a truly special day for our staff retreat that included mindfulness, stress reduction, yoga, hiking and time for group and self reflection. I have been both a leader and participant in over 20 staff retreats over the years and this one was, hands down, the best. Our team left refreshed and better connected and we have built in some of the themes from the day into our organizational culture. I would highly recommend Sally and Body Flows for a staff retreat." - Elizabeth Brown, President and CEO, Community Foundation Sonoma County
Beginning the day with your choice of yoga, meditation or mindfulness practices, we will help you to relax the mind and prepare for the day ahead, listening to your intuition and inner wisdom, and opening yourself up to new ideas and possibilities.
We will work with you to customize your activities and schedule, that could include any combination of outdoor yoga or stretching, mindfulness for stress reduction, mindful movement and hiking in nature, team building activities or vision creation, chair massage, local nourishing farm to table food, local wine tasting, optional overnight stays and more.
Partnering with stunning locations in Sonoma such as local wineries, rustic retreat centers, and exclusive hotel resorts, we can offer multiple options for location, dining and accommodation, depending on your budget and goals.
"Sally really made our department's off-site and bonding event a memorable one! With her strong attention to detail, warming attitude, and thoughtful activities, she created such a positive environment for us all to have a wonderful experience to collaborate together and get to know each other at a different level. Sally made the experience a great venue to bring our team together in a positive way. The location, food and activities made for a perfect corporate offsite." ~ Lisa Capper, Area Director
Please email us with any questions or to discuss planning your next work offsite. We look forward to hosting your event!
Our yoga classes are suitable for all levels and are custom tailored for your employees' needs, including stretching, strengthening, breathing and meditation.

Classes can be held in the comfort of your office, a nearby park or even a rooftop, and can be weekly, biweekly, monthly, at a company offsite or event or for your annual holiday party!

"Sally's yoga class is amazing. She understands the stresses (to both body and mind) of working in an intense corporate environment, and therefore, focuses on working to alleviate these pressures through her class. She has a humongous wealth of knowledge, and works with all levels to tailor each yogi's practice to their ability. It's a wonderful way to re-center yourself during a hectic work week, and feel aligned and positive for the remainder of day!" - Virginia
