The Benefits of Yoga in The Workplace


There is conclusive evidence supporting the fact that offering even just one Yoga session each week brings about changes in employee behaviour by helping them manage stress better, boosts team morale, enhance focus, clarity and creative thinking, improve communication skills and teamwork.

Workplace yoga allow employees to participate in a shared experience regardless of their skill levels and creates opportunities for them to bond in a relaxed and fun setting.

As more and more organisations understand the impact of employees’ health on the companies’ performance, there are steadily more employers who have integrated different physical activities into their corporate wellness programs. Having long proven to provide many mental and physical benefits, Yoga is increasingly finding its way into the workplace. Leading successful companies like Apples, Google, and Forbes have introduced Yoga into their corporate wellness programs and have reaped benefits like improved productivity and increased employee motivation.

Benefits for Employees


Alleviates Common Pain from Desk Jobs

Office workers often spend long hours slouching over their desk and unknowingly stretch their neck forward as they stare at the computer screen. This unnatural posture is unhealthy and can cause back pain, neck strain, and shoulder stiffness which interrupts productivity as employees are distracted by the discomfort and unable to focus on the tasks on hand.

Yoga can help employees to relief such pain through fluid movements and stretches. It can also help lessen any tension caused by stress.


Increases Energy & Reduced Fatigue

Working non-stop throughout the day is bound to create stress which can lead to lower energy and burnout in the long run. It is proven that doing any form of physical activity every 30 minutes, including stretching or even standing up greatly increases blood circulation and promotes oxygenation which is crucial for energy production.

Yoga can help to get your heart pumping and blood flowing through dynamic movements and poses. Not only that, simple Yoga stretches can also be achieved within your workstation to improve blood circulation and energy.


Improves Concentration & Focus

Stressful deadlines, demanding workload and endless meetings can create a mental clutter that prevents you from concentrating on tasks and making intelligent decisions. Yoga’s meditation and breathing exercises is a great way to effectively silence the noise and free the mind of clutter that is hindering productivity.

The increase in blood circulation from practicing Yoga also helps to improve brain function for a sharp and focused mind.


Promotes Team Spirit & Morale

Stressed employees are more likely to be hostile and aggressive which disrupts peace in the office and affects mood of employees negatively, causing them to be less motivated. A harmonious workplace is more productive as employees are collaborative and willing to help each other out to achieve excellence.

Yoga can help to elevate spirits and keep tempers mellow as it has been shown to lower levels of cortisol, a.k.a. the stress hormone, as well as perceived stress in ways likely to foster a more tranquil workplace.
