Why choose yoga?
Many people are drawn to yoga for the physical benefits, but yoga not only increases muscle density, it also de-stresses, detoxes and induces calm.
Regular yoga practioners are more mentally alert, emotionally more stable and feel good inside and out.
When you invest in the health of your employees, you are investing in the future of your business. Keeping your employees fit, happy and healthy is crucial in today’s working environment.
The way we work, nature of illnesses and methods of medicating are changing.
The average person spends over 1/3rd of their waking hours for up to 40 years of their life at work, so the work place is the perfect venue to implement a healthy attitude towards our bodies.
Corporate yoga is preventative healthcare; it is also a powerful way for a company to invest in its biggest asset – their work force.
Today’s corporate working environment is not exactly conductive to a healthy human body and mind, especially the office environment with its air conditioning, strong overhead lighting and long hours of desk and computer work. Then there is regular car, train or plane travel and dealing with the associated side effects. Unfortunately, all of these are often essential aspects of modern business.
The human body is designed to be outdoors, to run, hunt and generally pursue demanding physical tasks. Whilst technology has developed at an extraordinary pace over recent years, the human form has not adapted as quickly. Common workplace ailments include stiff neck and shoulders, sore necks, low back pain, weak tired wrists and the list goes on.
Yoga has an impressive role to play in reducing workplace-related complaints, injuries and illnesses and regular practice can promote increased health, happiness, concentration, energy and productivity.
