Self-reflection for personal & professional development

Updated: Mar 14, 2023

As well as being a yoga teacher, I also work in professional Learning & Development at a brand marketing agency. Although sometimes those 2 roles I play can feel worlds apart, I believe both allow me to support others to be the best they can be through promoting self-awareness and an attitude of continuous improvement.

It was a real pleasure to share some self-reflection exercises with the Sales Operations team at McCurrach UK Ltd last week.

Taking time to reflect on your own qualities and behaviours is an incredibly valuable tool for anyone’s personal and professional development.

I introduced the team to the Johari window technique; an impactful exercise to help you identify your strengths, how others perceive you, and any potential ‘blind spots’ which could be holding you back from achieving your true potential.

I kicked off the session with short introduction to chair yoga which, you may think, seems unconnected, but is actually the perfect alliance!

Yoga isn’t just postures you do in a class. It’s a way of thinking, a lens with which to observe yourself and the world in clearer focus. It’s from these observations that the true insight comes.

Did you know that the physical postures or asanas in Sanskrit, are actually just 1 of the 8 limbs of yoga?

Another of these 8 foundations of the practice is called svadhyaya, or ‘self-study’. Yoga at its heart is the art of self-reflection. Unpacking the layers of this identity we’ve created for ourselves to get back to the true nature of our being.

I love having the opportunity to weave some of my yoga training into the corporate world!

If you're interested in a mindfulness or chair yoga session for your team, I'd be happy to have a call to discuss your needs. Together we can create a bespoke workshop tailored specifically to your team and their needs.
