Why Run Yoga, Meditation or Pilates Programs In a Work Environment?
The pressures of the work environment cost businesses a lot in absenteeism, reduced productivity, low morale and employee turnover.
Work can be demanding, with emails, calls, meetings and deadlines. As the day/week progresses, we tense up, hold our breath in an attempt to go through the amount of work. This happens whether we work from home or in an office.
One of the tools to address this is mindfulness.
Being mindful means being aware of our thoughts, emotions, and how we are feeling both physically and mentally.
“Having spent over 15 years in the corporate world, working in highly pressured environments,
I have seen first-hand the impact of stress in the workplace and the resulting loss in productivity and motivation and even sometimes burnout.”
Mindfulness and movement programs in the workplace can do wonders for the employees.
The benefits are reflected both in the positive experience of the employees and in the success of the companies. Employees with high levels of well being tend to be physically healthier and more productive and engaged at work.
The program will contribute to staff retention; improve work-life balance and motivation. It is also conductive to do something fun as a team.
With Covid19, a lot more people are working from home. Having a lunchtime class online provides my team with an opportunity to step away from their desk, stretch and relax.
It gives us an opportunity to connect with one another in a fun atmosphere outside of the work context.
