Why Yoga in the Workplace? Consider this:

  • For every $1 invested in workplace wellness, a company can expect $3 in cost savings or benefits. (U. of Michigan Research Centre)
  • Job stress creates up to 60% of employee absenteeism. (C. Cooper & R. Payne)
  • Burnout costs Canadian businesses an estimated $12 billion every year in health claims, lost productivity and absenteeism. (Conference Board of Canada)
  • Employees who report a high degree of stress in their lives miss twice as many work days as employees who report a low degree of stress? (Conference Board of Canada)
  • Work injuries cost $121 billion in medical care, lost productivity and wages. At least 100 million workdays are lost each year to lower back pain at a cost to employers of about $20 billion. (The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)

Bring the benefits of yoga to work.

Every year, companies spend millions of dollars on office ergonomics and covering health claims caused by employee absenteeism. Work-related stress and anxiety is responsible for over half of employee absenteeism. In fact, for every $1 invested in workplace wellness, a company can expect $3 in cost savings benefits.
