Workplace Yoga

Benefits of Yoga

  • Strengthening – A regular yoga practice strengthens your muscles, which helps protect your joins and ligaments. It makes your body more adept for other activities like running, weight lifting, and sports activities.
  • Flexibility – Yoga also helps stretch the muscles, which can help bring comfort and ease into every day activities like walking, house cleaning, and handiwork.
  • Breathe Easy – Dedicating time to focus on your breath helps to lengthen your breath and more efficiently oxygenate the blood. This is beneficial for the cardiovascular and nervous systems. Yoga teaches you to use your breath as a tool to keep the body and mind healthy.
  • Calming – Syncing body movement with breath work is grounding and centering and brings you into a place of peace, and it helps you get a better night of sleep.

Benefits of Yoga in the Workplace

  • Focus – Taking time in the workday for even a brief yoga practice helps immensely with focus. Balancing poses help get you centered so you can focus more on work with less distractions from the outside world.
  • Movement – Sitting at a desk for 8 hours a day can shorten your life. Workday yoga allows you to get the body moving, lengthening your life. It also eases neck, wrist and shoulder tension often associated with working at a computer.
  • Communication – Yoga provides you the opportunity to tune in to your thoughts. Understanding your thoughts more clearly makes communication with co-workers more effective, making way for more productivity.
  • Balance –In a world of multi-tasking, with an abundance of information at our fingertips, it can be overwhelming to juggle all the tasks handed to us. Yoga helps balance the mind and the body and makes it easier to balance work tasks.
