Yoga for Stress
In 2015/16 stress accounted for 37% of all work related ill health cases, and a total of 11.7 million work days were lost due to work-related stress, depression and anxiety within the UK.
High workplace-stress has a number of undesirable side-effects including:
- Low staff morale and apathy
- Poor focus and productivity levels
- Weakened staff immunity leading to more sick days
- High staff turnover
- Work-place injury
So how can yoga help?
The good news is that by giving employees access to mind-body practices such as yoga and meditation, stress and its insidious side effects can be dramatically reduced or eradicated.
Corporate yoga classes, courses and workshops provide employees with a safe, non-judgmental environment in which to identify and better understand their sources of stress.
Classes focus on giving employees specific and practical tools and techniques to help them manage or eliminate stress as it arises.
Classes generally include a combination of gentle mindful movement, postures, breathwork and meditation/relaxation techniques.
Yoga for back care, RSI and workplace injury prevention
Between 2014/15 the cost of workplace injury and illness was £14.1 billion in the UK.
Much of our workforce is largely sedentary throughout the day, leaving employees at risk of a multitude of physical health issues including:
- Back pain
- RSI e.g. carpal tunnel syndrome
- Neck and shoulder discomfort
- Migraines and tension headaches
- Circulatory and cardiovascular disorders e.g. heart disease
- Weight gain
So how can yoga help?
Yoga is a very complete form of physical exercise that has been shown to work on and improve all the elements of physical fitness including aerobic capacity, muscular strength and endurance, flexibility and body composition.
Yoga can be safely modified and adapted to suit all ages, levels and abilities making it ideally suited to a corporate environment with multi-fitness levels.
Yoga poses aid with stretching, strengthening and stabilising at-risk joints and improving postural awareness, whilst mindful movement and breathwork help to increase circulation, energy and mood after long periods of sitting.
