Haven Yoga Meditation Shares 5 reasons Why Every Workplace Should Run Corporate Yoga Classes
As we draw close to the end of the year, and companies start to consider end-of-year functions, a corporate yoga and meditation session is a great element to add to a staff event. Giving back to your staff and providing ways for rest and relaxation will be something everyone can enjoy.
Haven Yoga and Meditation understand that the corporate workspace is an intense and often stressful environment and believes that it is highly important to incorporate practices for employees to switch off and learn to quiet the mind.
Corporate yoga and meditation is a fantastic team-building exercises to cure burnout and increase productivity. Here are 5 reasons why every workplace should run corporate yoga classes.
Yoga is for everyone
No matter how young or old, yoga is for everyone. Haven Yoga and Meditation ensures to personalise each class to be approachable for all abilities. Corporate yoga is a way to relax the body and mind, and that should never have an age limit.
Yoga helps to de-stress and relax
Burning out is all too common in the corporate landscape and poor mental health can lead to reduced productivity, higher absenteeism, and higher staff turnover. In Australia, 15% of the population report they experienced high or very high levels of psychological distress. Yoga is proven to de-stress by reducing the secretion of cortisol (aka the stress hormone)
Corporate Yoga classes are easy to set up
Haven Yoga and Meditation know that time is an important commodity, so we know how to work around schedules. Corporate yoga and meditation classes are easy to set up, can be done in your workplace (and even in full work attire!), and are personalised to fit your timetable.
Yoga improves sleep
The lack of sleep due to increased stress at work can lead to low mood and decreased productivity, among other health concerns. Yoga also has amazing properties that improve sleep quality and length in practising individuals, increasing the production of melatonin (a hormone that regulates your sleep cycle).
Corporate Yoga helps to attract and retain talented employees
Having a low staff turnover is important! Attracting and retaining talented employees is becoming harder to do and new recruits are often looking for added benefits in their jobs.
Corporate yoga classes and a wellness programme are a great way to not only show that your company is trending but to show appreciation to your potential and current employees.
