The opportunity to go from their workstations to a Yoga class right on your premises is very appealing to staff members at all levels—a convenience that inspires loyalty and respect. Even those who don’t attend classes are impressed that their companies offer them!

Employees gain:

  • Improved concentration
  • Increased motivation and creativity

  • An overall sense of well-being about their lives, work, and companies

Yoga classes can be held practically anywhere in the office, on the floor or in chairs. Yoga can be practiced by men and women of all fitness levels, ages, and body types. Yoga’s simple yet profound system of stretches, breathing, and quiet relaxation brings immediate benefits:

  • Improved function of all internal systems of the body
  • Stronger bones, leaner muscles, and more-flexible joints
  • Greater mental clarity and ability to handle stress

Integral Yoga will manage your Yoga At Work program by visiting your company, helping to schedule classes, and providing trained, certified, and insured teachers.Taught on the floor or in chairs, classes will include:

  • Eye movements to relieve eyestrain
  • Stretches and postures to promote better alignment
  • Breathing for greater health and well-being
  • Deep relaxation and meditation for mental clarity

These practices will be instructed to encourage your employees to incorporate them on a comfortable level at work, at home, or on the road.
