Learning Pool’s Hang Ten with Laura Dowdall

Introducing Learning Pool’s ‘Hang Ten’

We know that the impact of the recent global pandemic and the uncertainty surrounding it are putting strain across all areas of business, including Learning & Development. Thus inspiring Learning Pool’s ‘Hang Ten’ series.

This video series consists of informal five-minute chats and will give you a great opportunity to feel connected to others in the industry and gain a rare glimpse into their day-to-day lives. Sharon Claffey Kaliouby will be hosting the series and will be joined by several learning professionals to discuss how they are in general and how they’re coping with the current climate.

For series 24, Sharon was joined by Laura Dowdall, CEO of Healing Yoga, wellbeing expert, and social entrepreneur. Laura believes in an integrated approach to wellbeing through her expertise in dance, somatic awareness, traditional yoga, mindfulness, bio-energetic healing, and authentic self-coaching.

Everybody’s nervous systems have gone into overdrive during the pandemic, which has led people to feel overwhelmed, affecting colleagues and family lives. People are only starting to slowly see how the stress has affected them as people have been in a coping mechanism. In this Hang Ten, Laura shares the importance of learning how to process and deal with stress and this is a big aspect of what Laura teaches.

What is a Hang Ten?

According to the Wiki dictionary, a Hang Ten is ‘a surfing maneuver in which a surfer stands and hangs all his or her toes over the nose of the board.’ It’s a maneuver all surfers want to achieve on a longboard and requires great skill and expertise. At Learning Pool, a number of our innovative products are very water-driven, we have our LXP Stream, Waves, Rapids, and Flo. We also work with some of the most impressive client companies,  so we thought this idea fit perfectly.
