Corporate Yoga Initiatives
Do you wish your employees were more efficient? Paid attention to even minor details? Had more energy? Showed more enthusiasm? There is a surefire way to transform your employees from lethargic, bogged-down employees into calm, efficient, happy workers. The secret is not in a motivational book or a seminar about “synergy” and “paradigm shifts.” It is through an ancient, beloved method of attaining mental, spiritual, and physical wellness called yoga.
A once a week yoga session can do wonders for your employees. It doesn’t matter if it’s an office of 12 or 300, corporate yoga programs are sweeping the globe and their effects are astounding. One yoga session a week increases work productivity, builds relationships between co-workers and management, improves workers concentration, and reduces absences due to injury and illness.
How can yoga do so much? It is not just another fitness program designed to help people lose weight. It is an ancient physical and mental exercise, grounded in Hindu philosophy, that incorporates soothing breathing techniques, posturing, and mental discipline to achieve a healthy mind, body, and spirit.
The benefits of yoga are endless. It reduces stress, fosters feelings of happiness and contentment, sharpens the mind and improves memory and concentration, and can even ward off illness by building up the immune system.
Interestingly, yoga most benefits people who are virtual slaves to a desk. Yoga forces people to become aware of their poor posture, helping to realign the spine and build muscles in their arms, backs, legs, and neck. Yoga diminishes muscle aches and pains while reducing risk of work-related ailments like carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis, back pain, and stress headaches.
