"Yoga is invigoration in relaxation. Freedom in routine. Confidence through self control. Energy within and energy without." - Ymber Delecto
Our last full day of photography, shooting for LA HÄCH design, at General Mills Headquarters included a few pleasant surprises, one of which was a flex employee who turned out to be an avid practitioner of the ancient ways of Yoga. We met out on the manicured grounds just outside of the main buildings and were greeted by a nimble, able bodied yogi named Katie. After spending a small amount of time, we realized how adept our subject was at holding various poses and transitioning herself from one move to the next.
Analogous to the balance of body and mind, the General Mills "Work Flex" program has allowed employees like Katie to integrate their full time hours within their personal schedule needs. Thus far the flex program has been a success and has quickly become a viable option for those who need an alternative to the traditional 9 to 5 model.
