Increase Employee Resilience in Your Business: Yoga and Mindfulness in the Workplace
Our mission is to energise, inspire and reduce stress of employees by bringing corporate yoga and mindfulness to the workplace.
Everyone wants to feel energised at work. We help employees learn how to be resilient to stress by introducing Yoga and Mindfulness techniques at work.
Why Should Your Business Introduce Yoga and Mindfulness at Work?
The goal to increase the resilience of your employees within your business is top of mind for most employers. Many companies have started to introduce yoga and mindfulness in the workplace in order to address challenges around stress at work.
A heavy workload and lots of deadlines can lead to staff to feel stressed and exhausted. It can be difficult for employees to maintain high enough energy levels to perform at their best throughout the day.
Often if these issues aren't addressed in time, stress levels can build and result in a burnout.
A study done by the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA), showed that 60% of employees in the Netherlands feel regularly or extremely stressed, compared to 50% in the entire EU.
In addition, 17% of employees in the Netherlands have experienced burnout symptoms in the last year. A percentage which is increasing significantly each year, and cost the health care approximately €34 million in one year alone.
Introducing corporate or business yoga and mindfulness techniques in the workplace can help staff become more resilient to stress.
Reducing stress and increasing energy levels can improve overall physical and mental well-being. Yoga and mindfulness at work can also be a fun team building exercise.
You can read more about corporate yoga and why it's an important tool for overall employee wellbeing and learn more about yoga and mindfulness in the workplace in our corporate yoga blogs (more information below).
