Office Yoga

Today’s fast-paced lifestyle involves a lot of sitting and being inactive in our physical bodies while keeping our minds continuously overstimulated.

Many people have a long commute to work, spending a lot of time sitting behind the wheel of a car or taking public transportation. Others spend their day standing behind a service desk for several hours straight interacting with customers.

Learning to practice office yoga is a great way to incorporate mindful moments and habits throughout the day that can truly impact your well-being, whether or not you go to an in-person or online yoga class.

Taking care of yourself and practicing office yoga in small doses throughout the day can be more beneficial than going to the studio at random.

Why Office Yoga?

Millions of people all over the planet spend most of their workday sitting in front of a computer in an office or at their home working remotely, engaging even more in a sedentary lifestyle.

People get home exhausted, and unable to unplug from the day, dive into watching whatever show everyone is currently binge-watching on Netflix, throw a frozen pizza in the oven, and forget to actually take time to decompress and create space.

None of this is ideal for our lifestyle and health, and office yoga may be able to help.

If you’re in the habit of creating a schedule or even time blocking your calendar, it may seem like a great idea to go to a yoga class at your local studio at 6:00 am before heading to the office or hitting the gym after class at 8:00 pm and taking a vinyasa yoga class.  

And it could be.

But often, the reality may be that you’re just too tired, and end up skipping yoga class altogether.

Here are some of the benefits of practicing yoga that you can reap, whether you practice office yoga, as well as many other styles of yoga.

  • Increased focus and clarity

  • Improved posture

  • Enhanced breathing and oxygen flow

  • Enhanced creativity

  • Reduced stress and anxiety

  • Increased overall wellness

  • Increased confidence and resilience

  • improved self-awareness

  • it can be quite accessible

Yoga at Home

An increasing number of companies across the globe, large and small, have started investing in and incorporating wellness programs for employees and teams including office yoga, making it more accessible for their staff to lead a healthy lifestyle.

These wellness programs are often free to employees and provide them with high-quality activities to not only increase well-being, but often, as a side-effect, these companies see higher productivity, reduced sick leaves, and an overall healthier, happier staff body.

There is plenty of evidence of the benefits of yoga for the health of mind and body, and as more people intend to find better work-life balance, bringing yoga, meditation, and other wellness practices into corporations and workspaces is paramount.
