In a demanding corporate environment, it is becoming increasingly necessary for corporate employers to provide health & well-being solutions for their employees. Some of the top causes of workplace absenteeism are stress, mental health conditions and back pain. While exercise cannot eliminate these conditions, introducing a workplace well-being programme can help tackle absenteeism while increasing employee engagement.
Yoga is a particularly good choice for corporate well-being programmes due to the mind–body connection that is fundamental to the practice of yoga. Not only do your staff get to work their physical bodies, keeping themselves fit and minimising risk of injury, they also have the opportunity to de-stress and reconnect with their inner being.
A regular yoga practice can help employees to become less stressed and more focussed. They will have more energy, greater physical fitness – and they’ll sleep better at night! When this translates to performing their role to the best of their ability, it is clear how a corporate well-being programme is mutually beneficial to the company and the staff.
Beautiful Life Yoga can offer either 45-minute yoga classes to run over lunch-time or 60-minute classes to be held either ahead of or at the end of the work-day.
