The high cost of Stress
Most of us work long hours, engage in repetitive movements all day, and rarely take breaks. And while a little stress might help us meet deadlines, too much can interfere with our ability to work. Before long, our work habits begin to take their toll on our bodies and minds in the form of tension, illness, and injury.
The impact on employers is also dramatic. Workplace stress is estimated to drive up to $190 billion in annual U.S. healthcare costs—along with countless lost productivity hours and absenteeism.
Uproot stress at the source
Wellness programs that encourage employees to eat better and exercise more are great. But few of them address stress and unhealthy habits at the source. Building a wellness program that includes yoga into your company’s workweek can undermine negative effects before they take root.
Employees who regularly practice yoga at work report markedly decreased stress. A regular yoga practice also leads to improved concentration, increased ability to multitask, and more energy. Employers who provide yoga to their employees report a decline in stress-related sick occurrences and a decrease in worker’s compensation claims.

You provide a classroom space—such as a conference room, larger office, warehouse floor, gym, or rooftop—and we’ll take care of the rest. Our experienced and certified teachers deliver a simple, powerful program that’s safe for all levels of ability.
