Rest & Recharge on the 9th November
Our focus for this takeover day is all about taking time to rest and recharge, something that can be understandably challenging to prioritise in our busy lives.
We’ll be introducing you to the restful and restorative practice of meditation, which is simply a way to achieve a greater sense of wellbeing, a clear and calm mind and better manage stress.
We’ll be hosting a gentle yoga class, the perfect opportunity for you to try out this calming and grounding practice.
Below you can find out what to look out for and how to get involved - note that some of the experiences require you to sign up in advance, be quick, places are allocated on a first come, first served basis.
As this is a company event you do not have to make up the time if you are attending any sessions, but you should agree with your line manager first.

An Introduction to Meditation with Emma Mills, author of Inhale, Exhale, Repeat
11am - 12pm
HO 7th Floor – Room 3
We’re living faster, working harder, and often so busy we forget to take a moment to sit back, close our eyes and just, breathe. In this session, hosted by author and meditation expert Emma Mills, you will be introduced to the practice of meditation - a way to find calm amidst the inevitable chaos of life.
Inspired by traditional eastern lessons of meditation and mindfulness, neuroscience and insights from literature, Emma offers fresh and simple tools to keep our minds healthy, from that early morning coffee through to the moment you climb into bed, without having to invest in expensive detox courses or far-flung retreats.
In this workshop, Emma will share easy tips and practical takeaways for you to build meditation into your day. So just inhale, exhale, and repeat – and let a sense of calm and focus transform your day.
