Corporate yoga for productivity in the workplace

Yoga improves mental, psychological and physical health. Mindfulness techniques can help people reduce stress. Meditation can help people relax. Breathing exercises can be used to calm or energise oneself. A regular yoga practice improves health (circulation, respiration, digestion, sleep and energy levels), increases core muscle strength (preventing back injuries and reducing back aches), leads to weight loss, raises immunity and reduces sickness.

Increasingly, corporates around the world are encouraging staffs to engage in yoga for healthier attitudes at the workplace, lower levels of ‘burn-outs’, reduced stress, better performance, improved team work, enhanced creativity, higher immunity and increased confidence and wellbeing of their staffs. Many international companies are now offering yoga and mindfulness training to their staffs, including Apple, Deutsche Bank, General Mills, Google, McKinsey, Procter and Gamble, Yahoo and many more.
