YOGA FOR BUSINESS
Why is Yoga so important for the business world?
Most people know yoga as ‘exercise’ for the body, but it provides exercise for the mind and spirit too.
Here are some of the benefits of introducing Yoga into your workplace:
Work-related stress harms our health and is the greatest cause of absenteeism from the workplace. It drains us of energy, WHICH yoga has the potential to help restore, creating resilience and strength of mind and body.
Sitting for many hours is a productivity killer leading to back and neck pain among
other health problems. Incorporating simple yoga moves in the workplace is a great
way to avoid fatigue and it will make you feel more revitalised.
Specific stretches can help alleviate symptoms of regular headaches, carpal tunnel,
neck strain, shoulder stiffness, back pain and arthritis, for example.
Improved Concentration & Focus
Stressful deadlines, endless meetings and the background noise of an office
environment create mental clutter that prevents you from concentrating on tasks and
making good decisions. Yoga’s meditation and breathing exercises help to silence the noise, letting you be more mindful, alert and focused.
We need innovative thinking to solve the world’s problems – it’s clear our brains
aren´t always capable of delivering all we need to thrive as a society. The solutions of yesterday cannot solve the problems of today.
Yoga and meditation can develop clarity of mind. If our leaders took time and space
to listen to habitual thought patterns, they can be acknowledged as such and then
space can be created for sharper, clearer thinking.
Developing good values
Empathy, kindness, patience, honesty, respect, co-operation, integrity and acceptance can be re-established into the cororate world to provide an essential framework for a healthy working environment.
Yoga and meditation practices can help you create a more enlightened business.
