Staff team building days are an excellent way to make your employees more productive. It can also make them more able to work together. What better way to bond than over a yoga session. Hatha Yoga is an excellent way to calm and relax the body, relieving stress. It also has many proven health benefits.
You don’t have to be ‘super bendy’, classes can be tailored for all abilities and levels of fitness.
At this time of social distancing, it can be hard to think of a good way to undertake staff team building days. We can provide yoga classes via Zoom so all your employees can join in whilst maintaining social distancing!
Sessions can be as frequent as you would like (weekly, monthly or one-off). The lesson will cover the physical postures of yoga as well as breathing and meditation techniques designed to promote relaxation.
Benefits to employees
Some of the numerous physical and mental benefits of yoga in the work place include:
– General wellbeing– Yoga encourages a healthy mind and body and many people find that by practising yoga regularly they develop a healthier lifestyle in general.
– Posture– Sitting at a desk all day encourages unhelpful movement patterns such as tight hips, a hunched posture and tension headaches. The physical postures of yoga (asanas) encourage us to break with unhealthy movement patterns and so help alleviate pain and tension caused by bad posture.
– Improved concentration– yoga is all about being in the present and so techniques used in the class encourage a clear and focused mind
– Lowers stress and anxiety levels– Stress-related illness continues to be one of the main reasons for employee absence. There were 15.2 million days lost in 2013 due to stress, depression and anxiety (according to the Office for National Statistics 2014 report on Sickness Absence in the Labour Market).
Yoga helps to reduce stress through relaxation techniques such as body scanning exercises, breathing exercises, and restorative postures designed to reduce tension.
