Haven Yoga shares how corporate yoga can improve workflow and help your business.
With the new financial year underway, now is the ideal time for businesses to implement corporate yoga and mindfulness programs to help their staff relax and refocus.
The new financial year can be a stressful time for employees – what if they’ve not achieved enough in the past 12 months? What if they’re set for budget cuts? What about that grumpy boss?
Corporate yoga and mindfulness programs are proven to improve well-being in the workplace because they teach people how to relax, manage stress and understand their reactions to situations.
Corporate yoga is a holistic approach that incorporates stretching, strengthening and relaxation techniques. It’s a way of bringing physical, mental, and emotional balance into your life.
Corporate yoga is becoming increasingly popular in workplaces as employers look for ways to reduce stress in the workplace and create a happier workforce. And there are other benefits too, improved focus, increased energy levels, better sleep and reduced risk of common work-related injuries.
A recent survey by finder.com.au revealed that 47% of employed Australians feel stressed at work on a daily basis. Most reported feeling overwhelmed by a heavy workload (8%), lack of autonomy (6%), lack of support from colleagues (6%) or an unsupportive boss (5%).
Working longer hours in sedentary lifestyles has greatly grown the statistics of burnout in workforces across industries in the last few years. When doing the same tasks day repeatedly, creates an endless cycle in people’s minds.
Corporate yoga helps to create a break in this cycle with a chance to get people up and away from their desks and tasks. Yoga gives back the freedom of energy and open-minded thinking, creating a safe space in the work environment to reinvigorate employees and improve work.
