Health is wealth is an age-old saying but for a company, its employee’s health is a gold mine. According to research from the Integrated Benefits Institute, every year the US faces a setback of a half-trillion dollars due to lost productivity. In fact, the health of an employee is directly related to their productivity. Now, I’m not saying you need to immediately get the office decked with the best workout equipment! There are many ways to keep a healthy mind, body, and soul and what’s better than Yoga?

Yoga has numerous health benefits and is said to relieve stress and increase concentration and productivity. Yoga nurtures the organs of the body by enhancing blood flow, thereby allowing the body to rejuvenate itself. The immune system becomes stronger and diseases like diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular diseases can be controlled. Yoga also helps control anxiety and stress and promotes positivity which allows employees to focus better and concentrate on the tasks at hand.

Yoga can be integrated into today’s corporate culture effortlessly. Investing in yoga for your employees does not require much effort. Ever heard of Chair Yoga? These are asanas that can be done while seated on a chair. It can be infused with weekly meetings, presentations, tea breaks or even while commuting. If you are looking to boost the morale of your employees, integrate a Yoga program into your work life and see your productivity increase.
