We’re interrupting our summer break for a special workshop that we hope will bring some zen to your month!

As many of you know, working at a tech startup can be incredibly rewarding, intellectually satisfying and a lot of fun – but it can also be stressful. Join Girl Geeks Toronto on Monday, August 14 at Brainstation to experience a workshop aimed at helping you develop some useful stress-management techniques that will help you get through those hectic days with more ease.

This special 75-minute workshop will be led by Nayna Trehan of Toronto startup BlankSpace, and will include yoga games, workplace yoga techniques, breathing exercises and guided meditation. Nayna will aim to educate and provide you with practical techniques for managing high-stress environments and to enable you to reach higher productivity and a sense of joy in your daily life. With a team that has already been in your shoes, BlankSpace understands the dynamics of working in a tech startup and provides high quality workshops to get teams feeling at their optimal.
