YOGA AT WORK
Yoga is becoming increasingly popular in the workplace. Companies now recognize yoga's value by offering workday classes to their employees as part of their stress reduction and corporate wellness programs. Those companies include Wall Street brokerage firms and dozens of Fortune 500’s like GE, Nike, Apple, Harpo, Motorola, Google, Forbes, and General Motors.
Prolonged work sitting at a desk strains the neck, shoulder and back muscles, as well as tightens the psoas muscle which can all lead to tension and stiffness. Unless attended to properly, it can impact your ability to work effectively at the workplace and impact your overall quality of life.
Yoga is a complete mind-body health system that will enrich your work environment while increasing productivity. It will also:
- Increase flexibility and strength
- Increase energy levels
Offering yoga classes at work is a low-cost and innovative
solution for companies wanting to reduce health care expenses, relieve
workplace stress and promote employee well-being. Recent research indicates
companies that offer yoga and wellness programs to their employees reduce their
annual health insurance premiums, and thereby improve their bottom line. The
performance of a company depends on the performance of its key
assets-employees. Healthy employees are more productive and more cost-effective.
