Why Corporate Yoga?
In one word: Productivity. A simple word that implies a lot for both employee and employer. For the employer, the benefits are obvious. A more productive employee is an asset to any business or organization. A productive employee is one who meets or excels at all given tasks, one who takes on work responsibilities with consistency, reliability, focus and a positive attitude; which reflects well on every aspect of the organization, be it the business balance sheet, positive workplace environment or excellent customer experience or in other words, happy and satisfied customers.
Studies show that annually over $180 Billion dollars is lost from poor worker productivity due to high stress and other health issues. In addition, an estimated 1 million workers are absent everyday due to stress alone (2008). Truth is, an employee who is unhappy, unsatisfied, distracted or unhealthy emotionally—mentally or physically is a greater cost to an organization than absenteeism alone. Our customized Yoga and Meditation Programs address both directly, with proven modern and ancient techniques.
Yoga is a scientific discipline and offers practical and definitive results while addressing tension in both the body and the mind. Yoga at the workplace has become popular in many corporations nationwide because of the stress reduction benefits and the low cost of implementation.
It is proven through numerous scientific studies; the practice of Yoga and Meditation increases self confidence, relaxes the body and mind, increases focus and attention, decreases stress and anxiety, increases memory–and reduces health care costs and sick days for both employer and employee through its complete and proven approach to well being.
Healthy, well integrated, focused, calm and sound minded employees make happy employees who are absent less, more productive while working and better capable of managing the stresses of the workday as well as the stresses from their everyday lives.
How is this possible through the Corporate Yoga program?
Very simply: through a safe and complete approach to employee well being that directly addresses the source of the problem. The truth is that stress is happening because we have not learned how to properly manage our emotions our bodies or our minds. When we have not been given effective tools to manage these aspects of our lives;
feeling stressful is a natural response to situations that are happening in our lives which seem to be beyond our control or capability.
