Imagine substituting your afternoon cup of coffee at the office with a restorative lunchtime yoga class. Due to your body’s natural circadian rhythm sleepiness sets in between 1 and 3pm. This afternoon malaise is especially intense when there is an absence of natural sunlight (for example, in an office or during winter). Doing yoga during work hours also helps soothe all kinds of body pain that is associated with typical working positions such as “tech neck” from staring at your screen or phone and low back pain from tight hamstrings.
Quick fix stretches at your desk are not enough – just 30 minutes of dedicated in-office yoga increases productivity, creativity, and office morale. Companies began offering yoga at work when they found that employees with lower stress levels significantly reduced healthcare costs. Join the list of companies that are already offering yoga at work: GlaxoSmithKline, Google, the Pentagon, IBM, Facebook, MTV, Cigna, AT&T…and more.
The data speaks for itself – healthy employees contribute to healthy, growing, and sustainable business.
