Why offer Corporate Pranayama?
According to the Vancouver Sun (July 2005) each $1 spent on yoga by a corporation returns approximate $3 to the employer. This is a result of employee’s increased general happiness and well being, and is in itself sufficient enough to financially justify a corporate program. But there’s more:
- Reduces Absenteeism
Pranayama revitalizes the immune system and the major organs of the body. Improved immunity means less workdays lost through colds, fatigue, etc.
- Mental Capabilities Improve
Pranayama improves mental concentration and focus and improves problem solving skills. Flashes of inspiration should become increasingly common.
- Increased Ability to Stay Cool
Pranayama creates a genuine sense of inner and outer space. Tightening deadlines, conflict and other stresses will lose their grip.
- More Energy and Vitality
Pranayama awakens hidden reserves of energy so that drowsiness and fatigue are replaced by alertness and aliveness.
- Increases Happiness
Yoga physiologically transforms apathy and depression by oxygenating the brain and increasing the endorphins in the blood.
- Team Building
Taking Pranayama classes together creates a “shared-special-experience” bond between employees.
Tom’s two hour Workshop, “Pranayama, a Life-Transforming Practice,” provides practical, step-by-step explanation & practice of basic yogic breathing techniques. Appropriate for complete beginners and for students with some Pranayama background, & for employees of any religious or spiritual persuasion. Can be taught on weekdays.
A Series of regular noon-time guided Pranayama lessons. Forty minutes to an hour is a satisfactory time frame. Your employees will float out of the session relaxed, happy and invigorated… and productive. And more: having been introduced to what Pranayama can bring them, they can start a regular practice on their own, and the benefits to them (and thus to you) will multiply.
Workshops & Lessons
Needs: A quiet room. Folding chairs or cushions. A carpeted floor to lie down on at the end of the practice would be ideal.
