How yoga can help to improve employee wellbeing

How yoga can help to improve employee wellbeing

Employee wellness and wellbeing is fundamental for maintaining an inspiring workplace. Ensuring that employees are not burned out from daily work, taking a break from the desk is crucial.

Drewberry, an organisation who strongly prioritises employee wellbeing, has recommended that organisations help their employees unwind using yoga.

From the Article:

While people tend to think of yoga as a test of flexibility, it’s ultimately about so much more. Yoga is about a rebalancing of mind and body through movement and poses, offering a holistic approach to improving both physical and mental health combined.

Yoga has been proven to improve not only balance, posture and flexibility but also lung capacity and to reduce anxiety and stress, making it the perfect way to protect against the rigours of the modern working world.

Today’s jobs can not only be mentally taxing but physically taxing; just because fewer of us in the UK are in manual roles doesn’t mean working can’t give us the odd ache or pain.

Sitting for long hours at desks is bad for posture and overall cardiovascular and musculoskeletal health, so yoga is a great way to limber up after work and get the blood flowing again to parts of the body we neglect by sitting all day.
