YOGA at Work

Would you like to have yoga or stress reduction classes during your lunch break, or after work, at your place of work?

Benefits

Yoga helps increase energy levels, concentration, strength and mobility plus it helps to improve our health and sense of well-being.

Yoga helps to reduce stress, tiredness, lethargy and anxiety, in other words, yoga helps to get rid of what we do not need in our life!

An incentive to take action

Stress has consistently been one of the most commonly reported types of work-related illness cited in the national Labour Force Survey (LFS) conducted by the Office for National Statistics (ONS). Work-related stress caused workers in Great Britain to lose 10.4 million working days in 2011/12 based on the LFS data (source: the Health & Safety Executive). These days more and more companies realise that spending some money on the well-being of their staff can help improve productivity and efficiency. A government report has concluded that for every £1 invested in well-being you can expect a £2.50 worth of gained productivity and efficiency.
