The Wellness Exchange was created with the view to help as many people as possible connect to themselves & their communities in a meaningful way.
Our founder, Aisha Zeina, knew from her experience working in the charity & community sector, that people that need access to wellness practices the most often couldn’t afford it.
She also knew, after 7 years working in the private sector, that workplace wellness was desperately needed and worked best when it was direct, inclusive and accessible.
The Wellness Exchange sprung from these two needs and now every time we work with a company that can afford to pay, we gift a lesson to a group that can't.
Hey - I'm Aisha, I started going to yoga on my lunch break to manage the pressure of my job in sales. I found that yoga transformed how I approached the day; I could focus more clearly, I was less stressed & enjoyed myself more. Soon I set up classes for the company on the office roof and I made some of my best friends sharing these classes together.
Since I was 18 years old I have coached sports (mainly archery, climbing & mountaineering) & have seen the transformative effect that any movement-based activity can have on individuals & communities.
Everything I have learnt as a coach, as a city working, & as a student of movement has been put in to The Wellness Exchange with the aim to create spaces where people can connect to themselves and each other in a more meaningful way.
I hope you love it as much as we do. I would love to hear from you if you think there is anything we could be doing differently or if there was anything you particularly loved. Speak soon!
