As a fitness and wellness company, we offer fitness and medical counseling to a wide range of companies across Mumbai and Delhi. HR Departments in a lot of big and small-sized companies are waking up to the fact that healthy employees are key to the successful operations of an organisation and by monitoring employee health and providing wellness solutions at the workplace, they can create an ideal work environment where good health and profitability go hand in hand.
Let us look at some of the ways that conducting fitness activities like yoga or Zumba at the workplace can help employees.
It is easy to commit to a fitness schedule when you do not have to travel to the gym or to a yoga studio and when the fitness trainer comes to you! Not everyone has the financial ability to pay the high fees that a personal trainer would demand. Nevertheless attending group yoga sessions at the workplace in a group setting can not only ensure that employees get their weekly quota of exercise but also act as a bonding sessions with their co-workers. It is a win-win situation for all!
Most employees in today’s world have to juggle long travel hours, long work hours and the demands of their family. This leaves zero time for oneself with the result that stress and tension is at an all-time high. High stress can be a killer and lead to lifestyle diseases such as hypertension, Obesity, High BP and Diabetes. Yoga at the workplace can help employees relax and allow them me-time time in a peaceful environment. Corporate Yoga Trainers know the pain points of most employees and by helping them incorporate deep breathing exercises, employees will learn how to be more more mindful and focussed and help them relax and rest their mind with the result that they can come back to work rejuvenated and with more energy to tackle problems creatively and effortlessly.
3. Pain Relief
Most employees who have no time for exercise or do minimum physical activities suffer from a whole host of health problems that undermines their performance and does not enable them to perform to their best abilities. The most common ailments include neck pain, wrist pain and back pain. If left untreated, these can become chronic requiring total bed rest and thus putting a spoke in their careers and also hampering productivity at an organisation. Yoga is the most natural form of pain-relief ever invented. By improving oxygenation within your body and by effectively stretching your bones and muscles, Yoga can heal any minor or even chronic internal and external injury. All this must happen under the supervision and expert guidance of a trained and certified yoga instructor of course.
