Corporate yoga classes are an important part of a modern company’s corporate wellness program.
Yoga at work provides a positive return on investment because it keeps your office staff both physically and mentally fit. We tailor our yoga classes to suit your workplace demographic, and ensure that all staff participate at a level suitable for each individual.
Office Yoga helps keep your employees fit, healthy and flexible in both body and mind. It provides all the benefits resulting from reduced stress, plus it provides additional benefits from improved physical health.
For some employees who have been procrastinating about exercising and becoming healthier, having yoga at work may prove to be the little nudge they need to transform their lifestyle.
Corporate yoga students often comment on improved concentration, greater clarity of mind, better decision-making and improved personal productivity, as well as deeper awareness of their health and wellbeing.
Benefits of workplace yoga
Higher staff morale
Reducing stress in the workplace means your employees are happier overall, with the added benefit that staff feel better about themselves when they have an exercise routine.
Decreased illness and absenteeism
Workplace stress causes a range of physical and emotional illnesses, including depression. Stress suppresses the immune system so that it takes longer to recover from non-stress-related illnesses. This results in loss of work hours. The stretching and strengthening aspects of yoga are beneficial for preventing and alleviating back pain and other recurring problems. This can be especially important for office staff who are hunched over computers all day.
Reduced worker’s compensation claims
Stress-related WorkCover claims account for almost 30% of all WorkCover claims and are about twice as expensive as other claims. It may also reduce claims for muscular and joint problems which can be prevented and alleviated with workplace yoga.
Better inter-staff relations
When people are stressed at work, tempers flare and relationships can sour, leading to uncooperative, less cohesive teams – bad for productivity!
Improved customer service
When staff are less stressed they are more pleasant to your customers and provide better service.
All of the factors mentioned above, plus the fact that people think less clearly when they’re over-stressed, means that putting in place effective stress management strategies such as yoga classes at work will increase productivity and improve your bottom line.
We recommend class sizes of up to 15/20 staff to ensure each participant receives the required individual attention from the instructor and the best possible experience.
For executives we can also provide personal one-on-one office yoga sessions.
