Our intention is to make the benefits of yoga accessible to our community. Here is a way to bring qualified teachers to your workplace or organization.
Yoga practice has many benefits. Many of our students begin to practice with the goal of reducing stress in mind. Stress has been proven to be a factor in and sometimes major cause of many illnesses and emotional distress. Yoga postures and breathing exercises begins to focus and calm the mind, reducing stress and anxiety.
A focused mind is better able to attend to tasks, open to ideas and creativity, and gains clarity. Yoga practitioners find they become more productive and feel like answers and ideas come to them easily.
With less stress in our bodies our immune systems work properly. Yoga helps us fend off “what’s going around” and keeps us in our natural, healthy state. The yoga postures also can relieve back pain and aches in other parts of the body.
Stretching the body is an important factor in reducing repetitive stress injuries, a common occurrence in the workplace today. Other injuries at work can occur from sleep deprivation or a loss of concentration while working. Improved sleep is one of the first things new yogis usually report to us, and with that comes better focus while awake.
The ultimate goal of yoga is happiness, a sense of being present and content, whatever life brings. The practice of yoga leaves us feeling better in our bodies, calmer in our minds, and at peace with the moment. This experience translates off the mat to a happier work life, happier relationships, and lasting peace.
