Office Yoga

Carina works in a busy real estate office and knows how sitting at a desk effects your body and mind – and how to fix it.

Yoga classes for employees offer a low-cost and innovative solution for companies wanting to reduce health care expenses, relieve workplace stress and promote employee well-being. The performance of a corporation depends on the performance of its key assets: employees.

  • Recent research indicates that companies who offer yoga and wellness programs to their employees reduce their annual health insurance premiums, and thereby improve their bottom line.
  • According to a recent study on worksite health programs, corporations realized $3-$6 in savings for every $1 invested in wellness programs.
  • The same study showed more than a 25% average reduction in health-care costs for well-designed programs (American Journal of Health Promotion).

Additional employee workplace benefits include:

  • Improves memory, focus, concentration, decision-making skills, creativity and the ability to multi-task
  • Reduces multiple costs of stress-related illnesses and absenteeism
  • Improves employee alertness and productivity and ability to react more calmly in demanding situations
  • Relieves head, neck and back strain, carpal tunnel syndrome, insomnia, high blood pressure and work-related injuries from repetitive motion and/or lifting and moving objects
  • Creates better customer service
  • Enhances employee attitude and outlook
  • Promotes well-being in the workplace and reduces employee turnover
  • Reduced stress, anxiety & depression
  • Increased energy and decreased fatigue
  • Stronger muscles, improved posture and increased flexibility
  • Improved overall health and reduced risk for diseases, including cancer

Classes can be held on- or off-site on a schedule that is complementary to your company. Classes can take place during office hours, during lunch or after work. Schedule classes once or twice a week or when high-stress is anticipated, such as tax season or before a trial. Because wellness programs should be affordable, prices are negotiable depending on your company’s size and needs. Classes are suitable for all body types.
