Yoga is not just doing some exercise, it is much more. It is to expand your awareness, sharpen your intellect, and enhance your intuitive ability.

— Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Tara’s yoga journey started in 2002 as a way to lose weight for her wedding. Little did she know it would have such a profound impact on her life and help her through each life transition – having children, changing jobs, starting a business, facing fears, and more.

When asked what yoga is to her and why she practices it, she shares, “For me, it is a lifelong spiritual and physical journey that supports my self-care so I can be the very best version of myself for my family and most importantly, for myself.”

Yoga offers a multitude of benefits in the workplace, enhancing both physical and mental well-being. Here’s how it can positively impact your workplace:

1) Reduced Healthcare Costs: Incorporating yoga into your corporate wellness program can help lower healthcare expenses. As medical costs rise, preventive measures like yoga contribute to overall health and reduce the need for expensive treatments.

2) Lesser Absenteeism: Yoga promotes better health, reduces stress, and alleviates physical discomfort. As a result, employees experience fewer sick days and improved morale, leading to increased productivity.

3) Enhanced Productivity: Yoga teaches focus, mindfulness, and energy management. Regular practice can boost concentration, creativity, and overall work performance.

4) Positive Workplace Culture: Group yoga sessions foster teamwork, communication, and camaraderie among employees. It creates a supportive environment and contributes to a happier workplace.
Remember, introducing yoga is an investment in your employees’ well-being, leading to a more vibrant and productive work environment.
