Corporate Wellness Through Yoga
YC Yoga on the Go’s mission is that every being deserves the holistic benefits of yoga as a practical tool of empowerment, health, and physical fitness.
Yoga is a time-tested practice that cultivates boundless levels of energetic and physical fitness. Yoga for Life has designed a yoga program for the corporate employee. Corporate employees deserve the opportunity to reduce stress and tension AND become more physically, mentally and spiritual fit. It’s a busy world we live in today, with increasing demands on employers and employees alike. We work long hours, often hunched over a computer. We skip meals, keep a phone glued to our ear, and rarely leave our workspace for a break. Before long, these work habits begin to take their toll on our bodies and minds in the form of stress, tension and sickness. And while a mild amount of stress can help us meet deadlines, too much stress, or constant stress, can interfere with numerous physical and mental abilities. How we respond to stress can have a significant impact on our total health. Yoga can remove stress from the body and mind.

Meditation, or focusing of the mind, serves yoga students by allowing them to practice self-control and determination. So much time in an individual’s life is spent struggling to juggle incoming calls, ideas, media, and general “background noise.” Learning to block these distractions for a short period of time can be powerful; however transferring this ability to a multitude of life scenarios is most practical and beneficial.

This, in turn, brings about a greater feeling of well being and happiness—our natural birthright as humans. This powerful and effective form of Yoga, as taught by Yogi Bhajan, Ph.
