We’ve had yoga off and on for a long time, but ever since you guys came and revamped with new instructors, the room is PACKED! I’d spread the word to other people, but honestly I don’t want to lose my spot!

I’m a huge skeptic, but I have to admit the program you facilitated “Insight & Innovation” had a lasting impact that’s rare in my experience. You packed 90 minutes with mega paradigm shifts so that even those of us who have been around the inspiration-block a time or two left the session with new ideas about things we think about constantly. I definitely want to keep in touch with you. Thanks once again for coming out to DCP and I hope we have you back soon and often!

Balance Integration represents the very best-in-class corporate wellness strategy development and programming management available in the market today. They combine creativity, cultural sensitivity, innovation and expertise in a comprehensive scope and breadth of services. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Balance for over 5 years and have been consistently impressed with the level of professionalism and expertise they bring to every challenge and curve-ball thrown their way. I’ve yet to come across another company that brings the same level of service in the wellness arena.

White Plains closing is tough. Most of us have been with Nokia for over a decade so we’re saying goodbye to each other while we look for new jobs. That the company cares enough about us to make this programming available says a lot about what kind of organization they are.
