TAKE TIME FOR YOURSELF
Simply Meditation in Business is an easy to practice system of techniques in meditation, breathing, relaxation, mantra, yoga of the hands self-awareness and self-analysis. They deliver three key objectives in a business: fewer days lost to stress and anxiety, increased productivity and improved decision-making.
These techniques have been adapted for use in businesses. Historically, Kriya Yoga has inspired some of the greatest pioneers in the field of yoga and meditation and entrepreneurs, leaders and everyday people just wanting to improve their quality of life. Even Apple’s co-founder Steve Jobs studied the teachings of Kriya Yoga throughout his life for inspiration.
Simply Meditation in Business was first taught at the world-famous Hale Clinic in London, the world’s leading complimentary health centre, opened in 1988 by His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales.
How does it work?
5 – 15 MINUTES A DAY CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE
It works by reducing stress and anxiety and improving the body’s health and reducing fatigue. It then calms the mind and emotions to develop greater focus and concentration. Working at a deeper subconscious level, negative habitual thoughts are replaced with positive ones. As a result, one experiences greater joy and positivity for life and work. What we love and enjoy doing we will also do better, with greater commitment and confidence. Even life’s challenges are approached in a different way. This is the trait of many successful people.
In addition, the breathing techniques energise the body and change the way that we think and use our brain and emotions. The left and right hemispheres of the brain have very different activities, and this ability is now enhanced for analytical thinking and creativity. The result is greater productivity, focus and decision-making.
“If you just sit and observe, you will see how restless your mind is. If you try to calm it, it only makes it worse, but over time it does calm, and when it does, there’s room to hear more subtle things – that’s when your intuition starts to blossom and you start to see things more clearly and be in the present more.
Your mind just slows down, and you see a tremendous expanse in the moment. You see so much more than you could see before. It’s a discipline, you have to practice it.”
– Steve Jobs, Apple co-founder

Using Guided Meditation
In our experience students are guided in their practice achieve their personal goals much faster compared to other students. Change can happen in weeks and not years, which inspires others and takes them to a whole new level of life and work experience.
More Productive and Feeling Empowered
Felt re-charged afterwards and as a result had better concentration, focus and clarity of mind. It was easier to prioritise, concentrate on work, multi-task and be more productive. I felt empowered to approach my workload without being distracted. The effects of the guided meditation lasted throughout the day and left an increased feeling of happiness.

Using Meditation to Deliver Against 3 Key Business Objectives
Our company started their journey with meditation in 2018 during mental health awareness week. Our primary goal was to equip our employees with the tools required to deal with stress in an occasionally high-pressure environment and to reduce the number of days lost by the business due to stress. Albeit initially reluctant to attend, we managed to gently persuade our peers ‘to give it a try’. We were surprised how many attended and enjoyed the experience (even those you wouldn’t expect!).
This success then led to monthly scheduled sessions and we began to see ‘regulars’. The benefits of these sessions felt by some colleagues included going back to work feeling more energised, productive and efficient. The idea of ‘switching off and recharging’ during the working day was beginning to show its benefits both in work and at the end of the working day with many attendees experiencing an improvement in their sleep patterns.
Fast forward to 2020, a pandemic and the pressure to digitalise almost everything, we are now looking to take advantage of the virtual sessions, which provide clear deliverables against the main 3 objectives of improved mental health, productivity and decision-making. We are very much looking forward to improving ourselves and our meditation skills further.

Dramatic and Quick Results
Simply Meditation in Business is different from anything else I’ve tried, and I have tried quite a lot. The results were dramatic and really quick. In 10 days, I was a different person. I was calmer and my relationships were much better, even with the difficult people in my life. Everything is so much richer; my whole experience of life is calmer, richer, and fuller.
It Helped me to Run a World Leading
Complimentary Health Centre
Until few years ago I started and ran a business called The Hale Clinic, which was opened by the Prince of Wales in 1988. It became the largest Clinic in Europe for Complementary Medicine.
The practice of Simply Meditation in Business has helped me in a multitude of ways. It developed my focus, concentration and creativity which are essential tools in running a business. One of the most important aspects, Simply Meditation in Business enabled me to be flexible, adaptable and fluid in my decision making in times of great uncertainty. It is always good to have goals, but not to be so fixated that you lose the ability to adapt to changing circumstances. This is particularly relevant during our current pandemic. Work became a calm endeavour rather than an intense exhausting endeavour. As a side effect, I found Simply Meditation in Business led to a more moderate, balanced and healthy lifestyle.
In these particular challenging times, I would recommend Simply Meditation in Business to all businesses as it creates a calmness inside and an ability to adapt and respond positively to the many changes we face today.
