Firm both of your bottom lines

Yoga is healthy for your mind, body and soul.

But it’s also healthy for your organization’s bottom line.

Aetna, one of the largest health insurance companies in the country, recently started offering free yoga classes to its employees. And over a fourth of their fifty thousand persona workforce has participated in at least one yoga class.

The reported results were fascinating. A twenty eight percent reduction in their stress levels. A twenty percent improvement in sleep quality. A nineteen percent reduction in pain. And an average of sixty two minutes per week of productivity gained.

Apparently yoga can firm both of your bottom lines.

This isn’t the only cited example of yoga being operationalized into an organization. More and more companies and communities and even correctional facilities are starting to profit, both professionally and personally, from the many benefits of doing postures.

There’s nothing to lose. And while yoga might not be the panacea for of our society’s many problems, it’s certainly one step in the right direction.

How are you using yoga to make the rest of your life happy?
