Yoga at Workplace
The modern era habit of sitting at a desk for long hours in front of a computer is likely to result in neck and lower back pain. This can also be caused by bad sitting postures and staff constantly moving their head forward to be closer to the screen.
Stress, depression and anxiety are other factors in work-related ill health. According to the Health and Safety Executive, 49% of all working days lost due to ill health (see the statistics here)
Many companies already recognise that yoga can help to combat these factors and are offering classes to their employees as part of their stress reduction and corporate wellness programs during the work day.
Yoga in the workplace, or in a place determined by the company, makes it easy for employees to attend and eliminates their travel time to and from a yoga studio.
