New year – new you – new favorite team activity? 2024 is the year of mental wellness for companies and teams around the globe. To determine the best corporate wellness classes, we surveyed our client’s employees and event attendees.

How We Ranked The Best Corporate Wellness Classes (Process & Qualifications)

At Twello we held over 2000 wellness classes in 2022 and asked our attendees for feedback on their favorite sessions. And boy, did they have feedback! The 10 classes below have a few things in common:

      • They cater to both beginners and employees with existing wellness practices

      • They were extremely well received by all levels of attendees within their organizations (ex. Entry level, management, leadership roles)

      • They are all designed specifically for the workplace and feature inclusive and accessible language

    The Benefits Of Corporate Wellness Classes

    Quick refresher on the benefits of corporate wellness classes (if you already know all of this, skip to the list!):

    Reduced absenteeism: Corporate wellness programs can help employees maintain their health and prevent illnesses, which reduces the number of days the team needs to take off work due to illness.

    Reduced healthcare costs: By helping employees improve their health, corporate wellness programs can also help reduce the amount of money that companies spend on healthcare, insurance, and benefits.

    Improved morale and productivity: Healthy employees are happy employees! Employees who are healthy and report high levels of wellbeing are more likely to be engaged and motivated at work, which can lead to improved morale and productivity.

    Increased employee retention: Corporate wellness programs help employees feel valued and supported, which helps increase employee retention and reduce turnover.

    #9: Mindfulness For Improving Sleep

    According to a survey conducted by the CDC, approximately 1 in 4 adults in the United States reported experiencing a bout of excessive sleepiness or fatigue in the past month. That may be part of the reason this class made it into the top 10 best corporate wellness classes this year.

    For both our physical and mental wellness, restful sleep is vital. Discover the three primary obstacles to restful sleep, the role that mindfulness plays, and techniques to enhance the quality of your sleep. Learn how to embrace mindfulness to improve your sleep quality and duration.

    Mat yoga is just what it sounds like! Yoga on a mat. Yoga is one of the best ways to wake up the mind and reduce stress within the body. These classes are taught by a registered yoga teacher and feature modifications that are accessible to everyone.

    A yoga mat or towel is recommended.

    What attendees had to say:

    • “30 minutes is the perfect length, and recording is a must because – especially with something like chair yoga or mat yoga – I might want to do this every day, and it’s nice to have that guide. Much more difficult to just do it on your own.”
