Yoga Is Officially Sweeping the Workplace

The American workforce is becoming more mindful. In a new study of more than 85,000 adults, yoga practice among U.S. workers nearly doubled from 2002 to 2012, from 6 percent to 11 percent. Meditation rates also increased, from 8 percent to 9.9 percent. That’s good news, say the study authors, since activities like yoga and meditation have been shown to improve employee well-being and productivity. “Our finding of high and increasing rates of exposure to mindfulness practices among U.S. workers is encouraging,” they wrote in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) journal Preventing Chronic Disease. “Approximately 1 in 7 workers report engagement in some form of mindfulness-based activity, and these individuals can bring awareness of the benefit of such practices into the workplace.”

What Are the Benefits of Yoga in the Workplace?

As more and more people discover the benefits of yoga, the 3,000-year-old practice is increasingly finding its way into the workplace. In fact, the demand for corporate yoga has created whole squadrons of yoga teachers who specialize in office settings. The benefits of providing yoga and other mindfulness activities during lunch-hours or breaks are probably obvious to anybody who already does yoga, but a lot of them are backed up by research. If you’re considering bringing yoga into your business — or trying to talk your boss into providing classes — knowing about these benefits might pave the way for future office-sponsored Down Dogs.

The Benefits of Corporate Yoga:

Increases employee productivity. Decreases stress and anxiety in the workplace. Reduces absenteeism and staff turnover. Improves employee health and wellbeing. Promotes a healthy work/life balance. For these reasons many companies are deciding to put more options in place for their workers to reduce their stress.

Yoga, Anytime, Anywhere

Perhaps the strongest reason for incorporating Yoga into your employees’ wellness routine is the ease with which a corporate Yoga program can be implemented with any kind of resources. The only equipment required for a session of Yoga are some floor mats and a bunch of willing participants with a strong desire for a healthier, more fulfilled life.  A Yoga program can be conducted just about anywhere such as a conference room or an empty lunchroom.
