The journey to create Urban Balance began in the middle of a rush hour traffic jam. I was running late from work and scrambling to get to a yoga studio across town when the irony struck me. I laughed out loud, thinking how funny it was to be stressing and rushing to get to my yoga class just so I could slow down, chant Om and bend my body and mind back into a peaceful state. In that moment, the seed for Urban Balance was planted.
I wanted to figure out a way to make it easier for busy professionals to incorporate wellness into their daily lives. This was before on-site corporate programs were as commonplace as they are today. I started by meeting executives one-on-one in their homes or offices. And from there it grew.
My mission was to make self-care at work easier, convenient, and manageable for employees who are busy and over-stressed. I know that finding balance is challenging and that’s why I believe we must make it EASIER for self-care to be a priority. Urban Balance is constantly evolving to accommodate the changing demands on both employers and employees.
I have worked with marketing experts, business coaches and countless HR and C-suite representatives to determine what defines a successful program. Each program is customized based on data from both employer and employee surveys and we offer marketing and program support so we can maximize results. We focus our energy on helping businesses reach their wellness goals.
We are excited about the future of Urban Balance and the opportunity to positively impact both employees and employers with a more balanced, healthy and happy life!
