I have been studying and practicing yoga with Gret for over 12 months now. She has taken me on an incredible journey from yoga novice to becoming a founding member of her Conscious Working Tribe. Her patience, skill and general working demeanor set her aside from others. She is totally dedicated to each student and manages to enthuse you with every class. She pushes her students in a gentle, yet powerful way and instills a real passion for each and every class. She is a visionary and I believe for Gret and her Tribe members, there are no limits. Anything is possible.
As a yogi of 17 years, I never thought it would be possible to have the same experience of a real life class online. Gret’s flows always hit the spot and encompass everything I want – connection, physical release and mental clarity. Her approach to yoga is unique and relevant, but at the same time familiar and respectful of the traditions we know as yogis. Absolute highlight of my working week!
Gret’s one-to-one teaching has been a revelation. Right from the start I made meaningful progress – and I look forward to the class each week. Because I’m a novice she makes sure I understand the concepts as well as the movements. Gret’s classes are fun, challenging and informative. I’m delighted to recommend her to anyone.
Working with Gret was a total dream. She glided into my house with a cool elegance and I immediately felt at ease as we shared the juggles of being working mothers and home managers. She quickly set to work dividing up the areas of home life into sections that we could discuss and explore alternatives. Gret was a fountain of knowledge and gave me a fabulous list of easily accessible alternatives to match my daily needs. I was left feeling inspired, motivated and excited for my ever more conscious lifestyle and that my small contribution to a more sustainable way of life is attainable! Most importantly, I look forward to educating my children through my day to day choices and actions, how we can all make a difference to our planet together.
Gret’s meditation sessions have been refreshing and uplifting. I’ve really enjoyed the techniques, learning and energy I’ve gained from each class and feel more focussed and balanced.
Our decision to work with Conscious Working has been a very positive one. Gret designed a 6 week programme of mindfulness training blended with yoga for our entire team. During lockdown, it was a great support to rely on these sessions as a way to bring our employees together and deepen connections. The meditations in particular were a real source of strength for what was a challenging and sometimes anxious time for all businesses. For our Team, we pride ourselves in building connected and harmonious relationships across all parts of the business within our overall employee Wellness programs and based on these goals, we would recommend Gret and Conscious Working without hesitation.
Our team operates in a relatively complex, high functioning and, occassionally, stressful environment… and that was before remote working and isolation, which compounded the issues of our teams’ wellbeing! Gret’s structured approach to work wellness and balance was incredibly well received by the team. She was able to adapt her programme and related guidance to suit the needs of our team. She engaged our teams through interactive workshops in breathing, mindfulness and meditation, as well as introduced simple yoga concepts that could be done at our home desks to ensure our mind, body and spirit were better able to cope with the day to day stress. The team continues to reference Gret’s easy to implement toolkit as a means to feel good and perform at their best.
As head of the Field and Operations team at Michael Kors Europe, I believe a mindful team is a productive team. Gret created an introductory wellbeing programme that educated my team on the fundamentals of wellbeing and why it matters at work – as well as in daily life. She introduced a toolkit for my busy team and shared tactics to implement them easily. I believe wellness gives my team the energy we need to be the best leaders in our field and we look forward to continuing to work with Gret and Conscious Working.
Gret’s weekly wellbeing practices allow my team to (virtually) get together outside the working day to talk about gratitude, worries and the ups and downs of life – it’s a safe environment to share and support each other. The team benefit from a better state of mind, and as founder, I’ve noted a positive, productive and creative response, which makes us all more effective.
Having worked with Gret previously, we knew who to approach when we decided to found our new communications consultancy in London. We wanted to apply a modern well-being approach to our workplace, one that would benefit us and our growing network of like-minded professionals. The GBCL introductory package was informative and refreshingly practical. Gret’s focus and energy gave us the tools and confidence to keep growing collectively, virtually and independently as we navigate working from home.
