Large groups or small, we tailor our yoga programs to fit your organization’s workplace wellness needs.
Health is wealth. When we are healthy, we are better able to face challenges and give our best to whatever endeavor we undertake.
Employees deserve the opportunity to reduce stress and tension AND become more physically fit.
It’s a busy world we live in today, with increasing demands on employers and employees alike.
We work long hours, often hunched over a computer.
We skip meals, keep a phone glued to our hands, and rarely leave our workspace for a break.
Before long, these work habits begin to take their toll on our bodies and minds in the form of stress, tension and sickness.
And while a mild amount of stress can help us meet deadlines, too much stress, or constant stress, can interfere with numerous physical and mental abilities.
How we respond to stress can have a significant impact on our total health and performance. Yoga can teach employees how to remove stress from the body and mind so they can live and work more efficiently, in balance.
There is mounting evidence that workplace health promotion, when included in a broader, more integrated perspective on factors that affect employee health, can result in cost savings, higher productivity, and higher levels of employee engagement in organizations.
More companies are proactively looking for ways to support the wellbeing of their employees.
Yoga is a practice that can be done with very little space, minimal equipment, and an avoidable wardrobe change in a desk-format. This wellness practice seems like a pretty obvious choice.
Yoga is increasingly popular in the workplace. Many employers offer yoga classes as part of their employees’ stress reduction and corporate wellness programs. According to Yoga Journal, such companies include Chase Manhattan Bank, Forbes, HBO, GE, Wall Street brokerage firms, and dozens of Fortune 500’s like Nike, Apple, Harpo, Motorola, Google, Forbes, and General Motors.
Offering Yoga at work makes it easy for employees to join in and eliminates travel times to and from a yoga studio. The opportunity to go from their workstations to a Yoga class on premises is very appealing to staff members at all levels—a convenience that inspires loyalty and respect, even with those who don’t attend.
Unlike other exercise routines yoga is:
- low impact, improves strength and flexibility
- builds concentration
- reduces mental and physical stress and tension.
Yoga exercises are simple and can be modified for different skill levels and abilities – perfect for the office environment!
