An ancestral discipline from India, yoga is a true philosophy of life based on physical and mental training that contributes to the development of body and mind, and allows one to be in harmony with oneself, one’s loved ones, its environment and the universe.
The Benefits of Yoga for Employees and Employers:
The practice of yoga is beneficial both physically and psychologically and allows in particular to:
- develop harmonious musculature by strengthening muscles including deep muscles,
- improve flexibility,
- make the spine work,
- promote concentration,
- relax the body and mind by relaxation,
- manage breathing…
Above all, in the world of work, it relieves employee stress. Bringing yoga into the company’s daily life provides employees with practical tools to release pressure, focus, and relieve back or neck pain.
Indeed, employees spend many hours a day sitting at their desks and are often subjected to intense work rhythms. Now when the anxiety goes up, the breathing speeds up and the heart rate increases. Learning to manage your breathing and relax helps to calm your pulse, catch your breath and get rid of this anxiety. So employees learn to react more calmly and confidently by letting themselves be less overwhelmed by emotions. Moreover, on the postural side, yoga alleviates or removes back pain related to a bad position in front of the computer, migraines due to screens, pain related to carpal tunnel syndrome…
Another benefit is that practicing yoga with your work team helps to show kindness, gentleness to yourself and others. As a result, the collective spirit is strengthened in places that, by their nature, often favor competition and performance.
