Corporate Yoga Classes
Why Corporate Yoga
Employee wellness and health programs are a must for corporates considering a high number of lifestyle diseases and stress prevalent in today’s time. Optum report 2016 stated that 46% of Indian workforce suffers from stress related issues while 43% have diabetic risk and another 30% have diabetic risk. These are alarming numbers which are further going to worsen if any corrective action is not taken NOW.
Workplace wellness programs should be a part of the overall company startegy for a healthy workforce. Corporates who are committed to promoting work/life balance through yoga as a means, tend to keep their employees motivated, healthy and productive. Yoga is a perfect exercise that strengthens both mind and body thereby reducing fatigue and increasing energy levels. It is a practise that can be done with very little space (sometimes at employees desk), minimal equipment and an avoidable wardrobe change in a desk format.
