The fact is that each $ spent on yoga in a corporate, returns approximate $3 to the employer. This is apart of general happiness & well being of employees which alone is sufficient enough to adopt yoga lifestyle in a corporate. Though it’s hard to calculate the true benefit of yoga in terms of money bu following link may provide you some figures:
Corporate Yoga revitalises the immune system and the major organs of the body, removing waste products such as alcohol up to three times more quickly. Improved immunity means less workdays lost through colds, fatigue and other non-specific illnesses.
Reduces back pain
An extensive number of sick days are lost because of back pain each year in Australia. The stronger, healthier backs that result from a regular yoga practice will significantly lessen the number of days missed in your company. Count them.
Faster response time
By training you in the art of single pointedness, yoga immediately improves mental concentration and focus.
Improve problem solving skills
Yoga harmonises the left and right sides of the brain so logical and creative thought come together as one. Flashes of inspiration should become increasingly common.
Ability to Stay Cool
Stress is like an enclosing wall all around us. Yogic deep breathing and yoga stretches create a genuine sense of inner and outer space. Tightening deadlines, conflict and other stresses will lose their grip as you learn to breathe and stand your ground.
More Energy and Vitality
Yoga awakens hidden reserves of energy within your nervous, endocrine and cardiovascular systems so drowsiness and fatigue are replaced by alertness and aliveness.
Yoga physiologically transforms apathy and depression by oxygenating the brain and increasing the endorphins in the blood.
Taking yoga classes together is a way to build better communication and trust between members of a team and even have fun.
