Why Yoga at Work?
An international report by the World Health Organization reveals that depression is the most disabling illness for the corporate sector, second only to cardiovascular diseases. Long hours, multi-tasking, stiff competition, rigorous commute, irregular eating habits, sedentary desk jobs and bad sitting postures, all combine to create a pool of highly stressed, inefficient and thus despairing workforce. The National Institute of Mental Health estimates that U.S. employers lose $70 billion a year due to absenteeism, lost productivity and disability caused by mental distress.
The benefits of yoga are unmatched. It is the only form of exercise known to increase flexibility, strength, balance, concentration and breath capacity while reducing stress and anxiety. Yoga also helps boost morale and interpersonal communication – which for an employer means no more bickering teams or dissatisfied individuals, power struggles or dirty politics.’ – corporatewellnessmagazine.com.
It is also known that attracting, retaining and maximizing talent requires more than a fair paycheck. Encouraging work-life balance, supporting the development of a vibrant community and building team culture are all valuable considerations for employees.
