Lucia Mikusova is a nutritionist at our Nutricia Research Centre in Utrecht. She started a wellness movement to help her colleagues at Danone move more, eat well and improve their wellbeing. And smile! It started in 2015 when she became a dance teacher to fulfil her passion outside of work. Her colleagues asked her to give them lessons in meeting rooms at lunch. Fast forward seven years, she has a huge following of Danoners who tune into her yoga classes, afternoon stretches and wellbeing and nutrition workshops.
When speaking with the Danoners who have joined her events, it is clear to see how valued she is amongst her colleagues. "It is not part of her job so I really admire the hard work she puts into giving her colleagues moments of fun and relaxation”, says Jolanda Kampman-Bout. “There is something special about the sense of community she brings."
