Yoga Stretch at Work

Powerful Stretches for the Workplace

– Reduce stress and anxiety
– Increase concentration and flexibility
– Decrease repetetive and habitual stress and strain
– Create a calmer workplace

Schedule a half hour class of Yoga Stretch during your next staff meeting. Your staff will learn how to integrate these stretches into their daily routine. The class is held at your business and the stretching postures are designed to specifically relieve neck, back and shoulder tension. The stretches provide counter balance to physical demands associated with the workplace (standing, repetitious and limited movements, sitting at a computer, long hours which may lead to backache,
carpal tunnel syndrome, insomnia, headaches, etc.) Employees remain in work attire. Any level of ability welcome – not a strenuous or difficult class.

“Diane, we can’t wait to have you back, you taught us how to relieve stress in a fun and easy way, we now start each meeting with a deep breath and chair warrior!” Louise M.

Diane has taught classes for local hospital staff, rehabilitation patients, real estate offices, banks, club meetings, garden clubs, newcomers clubs, 12 step groups, church retreats, and women’s organizations.

A United National report called job stress the 20th century epidemic. According to the American Institute for Stress, almost 90% of doctor visits in the U.S. are stress related and the annual costs of stress to the average employer are staggering. It’s estimated that job stress costs U.S. industry $200 to $300 billion annually in absenteeism, diminished productivity, employee turnover, accidents, and medical, legal and insurance fees. Today, corporate America is forced to make a major commitment to stress management. Computers have taken their toll on their human operators.The human body was never designed to sit still, with only the fingers, eyes and neck moving while the spine remains static. This “computer posture” is a recipe for a host of physical and energetic ailments. Benefits of workplace yoga can include less back pain, improved immunity and thus less sick days lost; as well as quicker response times, better problem solving skills and more focus.
A growing number of corporations and businesses are turning to Yoga as a solution to relieving employee pressure. Nike, HBO, Forbes, Apple and others believe yoga is important enough to offer yoga classes as a regular employee benefit.
(Yoga Journal). Other businesses and non-profit organizations simply help organize on-site yoga classes for the convenience of employees who pay or co-pay for their participation.
