Why offer Corporate Yoga?
Health is Wealth – It’s as simple as that!
"Nicole started providing us yoga in the workplace in the fall of 2013 as an HR initiative to promote wellness to our office staff. Nicole is very knowledgeable and takes the time to explain the poses and how they will help our bodies but also focuses on our needs and adapts to the group. That being said however she does challenge us and had us doing handstands in a matter of months!
We have one individual in our group that prior to yoga being offered in the workplace had back spasms which cause her to be absent at times, since beginning yoga she has had no back issues for the past year! Having Nicole come to us allows not only the convenience to maximize our lunch hour but is a great mental break from our daily stresses.
As a HR Manager I look for ways to promote wellness in the workplace and must say that having Nicole come to us during our lunch hour has been a successful wellness initiative. I strongly recommend Nicole to assist with meeting your wellness needs in the workplace!" Nicki Dalton, HR Manager
Corporate Yoga, Workplace Yoga, Office Yoga or Lunch time Yoga - there are many ways to call it but the bottom line is always the same:
Yoga classes for your employees is a clear Win-Win situation. When your employees are healthy, they are better able to face challenges, make decisions and learn to cope with the stress of our everyday lives.
So why not offer yoga to your employees? Show them you care!
Either as a Lunch time Yoga program or a session after work, classes can be paid for by your company, your employees or both.
Recent research indicates that companies who offer yoga and wellness programs to their employees reduce their annual health insurance premiums, and thereby improve their bottom line. According to a study on workplace health programs, corporations realized $3-$6 in savings for every $1 invested in wellness programs. The same study showed more than a 25% average reduction in health care costs for well-designed programs (American Journal of Health Promotion).
I offer workshops, yoga events, group classes or private sessions (i.e. employee retention programs, employee appreciation, gift certificates) tailored to the participants abilities. You just provide the space. For further information on how to increase the well-being of your employees, please contact me by clicking here.
