After sitting at a desk for a period of time your body starts to shift out of alignment, shoulders hunch, lower back collapses, hips tense as the muscles in the legs shorten and contract, the spine compresses and circulation deteriorates but yoga will help to lengthen and increase a healthy flow of energy which results in the reinvigoration of the entire nervous system.
On a mental plane, yoga can relieve symptoms of stress and negativity.
It can help to restore a positive balance with a sense of calm and focus, increasing chances for effective concentration and productivity levels, at work.
Practised on a regular basis, students will discover countless physical, mental and emotional benefits, which may be taken back to work or home with them.
Regular practise can result in
- Increased energy levels and performance
- Increased concentration, focus and performance
- Enhanced communication skills and team building
- Reduced sick days by improving general health
- Improving employee morale and work satisfaction
- Increased physical and mental well-being
