WHY - YOGA AT WORK IS IMPORTANT
The changing work environment increasingly places demands and stress on employees. This work related stress leads to
- Drop in work performance
- Dissatisfaction at Office
The pressure of the work environment has cost businesses well over $250 billion dollars a year in absentee-ism, reduced productivity, low morale, employee turnover, and accidents. Absentee-sim and attrition alone accounts for 53% of overall running cost of Call Centres and BPO's in India. This is why companies such as American Express invest a lot of wealth and money is keep employees happy and developing a work environment that is hard to resign from.
Searching for ways to deal with the stressful work environment, corporations are discovering the enormous benefits of yoga-based wellness programs.
Adrenal Fatigue and Burnout
Adrenal Fatigue is a very serious condition which effects how we relate to stress and handle life situations. When our Adrenal Glands are running below normal they do not respond properly to stress. These amazing little glands control how we handle stress, but without them our reactions, emotions, and feelings take on a mind of their own. Our adrenals control our response to stress by releasing cortisol and epinephrine – hormones that help to regulate our immunity levels, heart rate, and over-all energy.
If our adrenals are kept in a heightened state for long periods of time they become weak. Some symptoms of Adrenal Fatigue and Burnout can be: desire to sleep all day without feeling rested, drinking excess caffeine, mild depression, lack of motivation, and anger. Over half of the population has reported high-stress and adrenal fatigue, which can be caused by work.
What can cause Adrenal Fatigue?
Increased workloads, long hours, constant deadlines
Job insecurity and lack of opportunity for growth
Unpleasant work conditions such as tight work spaces and loud noises
Take Breaks at Work
Taking breaks in the workday with yoga has proven to be one of the most effective ways in helping employees relieve stress and become refreshed and more focused. Employees will then be able to make better decisions, be more productive, and have a more positive attitude with co-workers. Gaia has designed mini yoga flows to meet the needs of the corporate environment. Our Yoga at Work practices can be conveniently and discretely done within the office space and in a short period of time.
