Could your workplace benefit from a corporate yoga class? Long hours, multi-tasking, irregular eating habits, sedentary desk jobs and bad sitting postures, all combine to create burnt out and stressed employees.
More and more organisations are becoming aware of the numerous benefits that corporate yoga can provide. Usually held during lunch or before /after work, these sessions can be completely customised to your employees and their needs. Yoga is so much more than a bunch of flowing poses; it involves awareness of breath and mind and provides a whole body experience.
Tailored Yoga Sessions
Sessions are tailored to cover all levels and include:
- Focusing on deep breathing and mindfulness – fantastic for busting stress levels, improving concentration and enhancing energy levels.
- Focusing on specific poses to relieve tension common to the job – whether that’s from sitting at a desk all day, in a car or using a repetitive motion again and again.
- Sequences that generate energy and motivation.
- Including some relaxation and restorative poses.
Corporate yoga provides employees with needed downtime, access to practice mindfulness, physical activity with specific stretching and can be tailored to every body type and ability level.
Many directors are beginning to realise that health and wellness need to be made a priority in order to support their staff and encourage organisational productivity. With such high absenteeism linked to stress and our working environment, corporate yoga is the perfect wellness tool to bring into your workplace.
Put simply, workplace yoga can not only make your employees healthier and happier, but it can increase employee retention, decrease sick leave and ultimately increase productivity.
Corporate Yoga at NAB
Recently, we held a corporate yoga session for some of the team at NAB. This session kicked off a complete wellness day and focused on providing an energising yoga flow flowed by the crystal bowls and meditation. 14 people attended in total.
“It was a lot of fun. I am definitely interested in the wellness days too,” said Shannon Scott, National Australian Bank Limited.
