Yoga in the Workplace

Sometimes you cannot fit it all in. Exercising early in the morning may be a big no no if you love staying in bed that extra hour or perhaps you have a family to or other work to tend to. Yoga in the workplace is just the ticket, breaks up the day and is a win win for employers and employees alike.


Incorporating yoga into the workplace can offer numerous benefits for both employees and employers. Here are some of the advantages:


For Employees:

1. Stress Reduction: Yoga helps reduce stress by promoting relaxation through breathing exercises and mindfulness techniques.

2. Improved Physical Health: Regular yoga practice can lead to better flexibility, posture, strength, and balance.

3. Enhanced Mental Clarity: Yoga encourages focus and concentration, which can improve productivity and decision-making.

4. Boosted Energy Levels: The combination of movement and breathwork can increase energy and reduce fatigue.

5. Better Emotional Well-being: Yoga can improve mood and emotional resilience, helping employees manage challenges more effectively.

6. Reduced Physical Discomfort: For those who sit for long periods, yoga can alleviate back, neck, and shoulder pain.

7. Team Building: Group yoga sessions foster a sense of community and camaraderie among colleagues.


For Employers:

1. Increased Productivity: Employees who practice yoga often report better concentration and efficiency.

2. Lower Absenteeism: Improved health and stress management may lead to fewer sick days.

3. Cost Savings: Reduced healthcare costs due to improved overall health and well-being.

4. Enhanced Employee Satisfaction: Offering wellness programs like yoga can improve job satisfaction and retention rates.

5. Improved Company Image: Companies that prioritise employee wellness can attract and retain top talent.

6. Better Work Environment: Yoga can create a more positive and supportive workplace culture.

7. Reduced Workplace Injuries: Improved physical health and flexibility can lower the risk of common workplace injuries.


I offer yoga classes during lunch breaks, before or after work hours, or even virtual sessions. Whether it's a full-fledged yoga programme or simple desk stretches, the benefits of incorporating yoga into the workday can have long-lasting positive effects.


If you have an employer who cares about the health and welfare of their staff, they may even contribute to the cost.  They may even provide yoga t-shirts and pants with their logo to let others know they support your mental, physical and spiritual health!
