Yoga in a corporate environment

Workplace yoga is becoming a lot more popular in businesses – big and small. Organisations are giving more attention to the physical and mental wellbeing of staff and managers. Some are even implementing wellness programmes.

After a full-time career in graphic design, Alissa understands the effects a sedentary desk job can have on the physical body and mind state. She has now found better harmony in her work through practising yoga and meditation. With her experience in the corporate world, she wants to aid those who are seeking balance in their lives. Corporate yoga classes are tailored around the needs of the participants to suit all levels. This includes contemporary flow yoga, postures that challenge but are accessible, and conclude with a short mindful meditation.

Sessions are typically held in a lunch break, nearby the office, or in a private space onsite if available. When held in an outdoor setting, parks with shady trees are ideal, with the benefits of connecting with nature to refresh and invigorate the senses. Once a suitable timeslot has been arranged, classes are booked in blocks to encourage consistent attendance. This cultivates overall progress and a sense of accomplishment.

Workplace yoga is a great way to break up the workday. It’s the antedote to both sedentary work and occupational overuse. Participants have claimed to be a lot more productive and less stressed when returning to work. It’s also a good way to bond with colleagues in a relaxed and supportive environment.

A small amount of focused attention each week – or even better, daily – helps to build mental and emotional resilience. Don’t we all want a good relationship with the people that we spend most of our waking hours with!
