Many companies recognise the value of offering yoga, meditation and relaxation classes for their employees. There are many benefits to a regular yoga practice, however in the busy lives we live today, it is becoming increasingly difficult for people to factor in a self-care plan that fits with their work and other commitments. We are seeing increasing dis-ease triggered by stress and lack of life balance.
Yoga encompasses both mind and body awareness, through a combination of physical exercise and an internally directed mindful awareness of the whole self. This in turn begins to calm the nervous system and combat stress, anxiety and can assist with depression.
Improving wellbeing and resilience to stress are key issues facing many organisations today. Stress has become the biggest threat to the future health of the workforce. Many work hours are lost due to sickness absence, much of which is stress related.
Resilience to stress means that employees can respond productively when faced with significant change or pressure to achieve outcomes.
