Office work often involves a lot of sitting and staring at a computer screen, with many corporate workers spending upwards of 40 hours engaging in little physical activity. Simple yoga poses are a great way for your staff to engage in physical activity in an office environment, improving their health and physical well-being. The benefits of yoga extend beyond the boundaries of physical fitness, increased flexibility and strength. Sure, good health and general well-being of your staff do make a difference in their performance, yielding more positive attitude, higher effort and results. But the reach of yoga practice at work is much greater.
Offering business yoga for your staff and employees brings about benefits beyond the physical ones. A regular yoga practice at work can increase mental clarity and focus and counteract the sedentary, maybe even a mundane nature of office life. Yoga practice has an amazing ability to clear one’s mind, bring inner peace and reduce stress.
When was the last time you thought about your breath? How do you breathe? When you work out or exercise, do you still think about all the other things that you have to do, the stresses of work – and life – not able to let it go? Practicing yoga at work can help you just let it all go. Call it meditation or mindful observation of the inner you, without judgment or anger and see the beautiful changes happening.
Business Yoga practice can be a great team building activity. Not only is yoga a personal journey and practice, but you also become part of a bigger picture. You share your surroundings with other people, your co-workers, clients and staff. Yoga can strengthen the bond of any group of people. For the office this can foster a positive work environment and encourage teamwork, resulting in greater success and results.
