Our Story...

Debby Lewis founded Corporate Yoga Australia in 2014 following a corporate career in both England and Australia.

The ethos of the company is to deliver techniques that help people deal with stress and burnout, and optimize the resilience and physical and mental health of employees.

Debby started practicing yoga as a child and it has always supported her journey during her corporate work and many world travels. However, the idea for corporate yoga was born in 2001 when Debby was working a high pressure corporate role in Sydney; putting in long hours and sitting at a desk for extended periods. She had a regular practice of yoga during this time and started bringing simple stretches, meditation, breathwork and chair yoga to her HR colleagues.

The dream to bring the benefits of the ancient tradition of yoga into the modern world manifested in 2014 when Corporate Yoga Australia was launched.
