More companies are bringing yoga or meditation practices to their offices to help reduce stress and boost productivity.
Yoga and meditation are not just extracurricular activities. Many employers now offer on-site wellness programs to boost morale and health around the office.
It’s not surprising, as yoga in the workplace proves to be effective at lowering stress and improving overall well-being for employees.
About one-fourth of American employers now offer some kind of stress reduction options, according to New York Times reporter David Gelles, in his book Mindful Work.
