We have come a long way from the days when corporate wellness programs were viewed as good-to-have rather than as a need-to-have. Indeed, employee wellness has become a strategic imperative for most organisations across the globe and not without reason. An increasing number of studies point to evidence that the returns on wellness programs go way beyond healthy and happy employees.
A growing number of businesses are finding that offering Yoga to their employees is a low-cost, preventive and holistic healthcare measure, making the discipline a resonating success with human resource teams looking for strategic returns on their wellness investments. Regular practitioners of Yoga would stress that its many benefits include emotional wellness, improved strength, flexibility, balance and postural alignment amongst others.
In the boardrooms and workshops of companies, Yoga can add dimensions such as stress reduction, energy-enhancement, enhanced creativity and focus and healing for employees leading to increased productivity for the employer.
There is conclusive evidence supporting the fact that offering even one Yoga session a week brings about noticeable changes in employee behaviour by helping them better manage stress, enhance clarity and creative thinking, improve communication skills, cultivate leadership and teamwork, and increase overall effectiveness in the workplace.
Sport Preparation, Team Building
Whether you are a sporting team or an individual our teachers can offer you or your team yoga that can stretch, nurture and prepare your body, tune in with your breath and clear & calm your mind.
Yoga is not just about being able to perform complicated poses and movements. It is a holistic approach to physical and mental health, as well as a person's well-being and personal growth. Yoga is the extended concept of performing to your best ability in the midst of serious competition. Believing in yourself and your ability.
Yoga for Day Care Centres
arise.YOGA has been offering Kids Yoga in Studio and to Schools and Day Care Centres for a number of years.
Kids are amazing humans, they are open to learning everything, their ego has not fully established and they will move exactly as they feel, they will sing and chant as loud as their hearts tell them they should - it is purely beautiful.
Kids also enjoy the mindfulness side of Yoga a lot more than the physical side - this surprised me also. Therefore, our Kids Yoga, whether it be in studio classes, or at schools and day cares, centre around teaching kids how to be mindful and use breath, meditation, movement and sounds to find peace and calm.
