Reducing stress in the workplace

I first met Nathan through classes he taught at several Portland yoga studios. His classes were uniquely centering compared to other teachers I’d experienced, and he clearly stood out as exceptional amongst other instructions. My business partner and I run a successful and growing family law litigation practice in Portland. It can be intense and stressful work for our staff, and even more so for clients.  We decided to try yoga as a firm benefit to help buffer our staff from the ill effects of stress, and invited Nathan to teach an in office class as an experiment. The experiment is over and the results are in! I cannot say enough positive things about Nathan’s work with our people at Stephens & Margolin LLP.  Hiring Nathan Mills to teach yoga at our law firm is one of the best business decisions I ever made.  Nathan’s in-office classes are popular and well attended. I’ve personally seen staff’s increased resiliency to stress after a yoga class, as well as patience and empathy with clients. His corporate yoga classes  have improved office camaraderie, and our sense of being a team. Nathan knows our people, and his classes are uniquely tailored to us, down to the skill level and commentary. Recently we added massage from Nathan after yoga, and the staff feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.  I have happier employees, happier clients, and more revenue because of Nathan’s work with our firm.
