YOGA IN THE WORKPLACE
How Employees feel emotionally, mentally and physically is the foundation for your Business success and productivity. Yoga can be a practice that can help with this in the Workplace.Coming from a Corporate background myself, I know the effects firsthand of burnout, stress and overworking.
Stress, depression or anxiety and musculoskeletal disorders accounted for the majority of days lost due to work-related ill health in 2021/22
914,000 workers suffering from work-related stress, depression or anxiety (new or long-standing) in 2021/22 Labour Force Survey (LFS)
17.0 million working days lost due to work-related stress, depression or anxiety in 2021/22 Labour Force Survey (LFS)
Also, being in the age of Covid, nearly two-thirds (64%) of those in work across the UK and Europe said their work-related stress levels had increased compared with pre-pandemic levels!
WHY IS YOGA BENEFICIAL IN THE WORKPLACE?
Many Employees sit in the same working position for many hours a day. Yoga gives Employees the chance to reach areas within their body which aren’t regularly used. This can help to release tension, increase blood flow and improve core strength to name a few
Working in the Office can sometimes be a stressful place with many Employee’s living in their ‘fight or flight’ mode of stress, tension and unease. The Mindfulness techniques used in class to ease more into the parasympathetic nervous system can be utilised past the class and into the Employee’s regular day to day time in the Office
Builds community and togetherness within the Company
Unlike some other forms of movement, Yoga can be done anywhere with very little equipment needed
Increases focus and productivity within their role
Whether it is an energising morning flow or an afternoon pick me up, by incorporating the Method of conscious movement combined with breath-work, Employees will feel an increase in calm, focus, productivity and all round goodness!
