Employee Wellness Yoga

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health found that workers who report they are stressed incur health care costs that are almost 50% higher than other employees


Employee Wellness Yoga Classes are a stress management tool that can benefit employees by reducing stress and improving overall emotional and physical wellbeing.

In today’s world, challenging deadlines, long work hours, and poorly designed work stations can all contribute to employee stress and tension.  Employees strive for a suitable balance of home and work life but rarely feel as they can achieve it.  This can lead to higher stress related health conditions, disengaged employees and low morale, all of which can impact the company’s bottom line.

How it works

Classes are designed specifically for the participants of the program to ensure maximum benefits!  All levels are welcomed and no prior experience is needed.  Each class will include:

  • Breathing techniques to calm the mind, reduce tension in the body and increase focus
  • Safe, guided movements in and out of yoga postures
  • Building strength, increasing flexibility and lifting energy

Getting Started

Through our initial consultation, we’ll discuss in-depth the expectations and goals for the program.  We’ll also discuss a fee schedule that works for the company, whether classes are employer subsidized or employee sponsored.   To select a suitable location, consider conference rooms, lunch rooms or a company gym.  Typically, classes will meet once a week for 60-75 minutes for 6-8 week sessions.  The best class times are either before or right after normal work hours.  Employees will be responsible for bringing their own yoga mat.

End Results

The health of any company is comparable to the health of its largest asset, the employees.  With rising healthcare costs, why not add a low-budget, marketable employee benefit that promotes wellness?  Not only that, but what a great team building activity!  Employees can bond while improving health!  Employee Wellness Yoga class participants will leave class with more energy, feeling refreshed and better equipped to eliminate tension and stress throughout their day.  This can result in increased morale, better productivity and a healthier work environment.
