- strengthens muscles
- increases vital capacity 
- facilitates general health

 Do you sometimes feel stressed while at work?
Yoga can help you de-stress if stress is part of your job . Employees that are relaxed and productive are important to any firm in this time of competition. Yoga exercises that you can do at your work can increase focus, remove fatigue and thereby help you reach your full potential - without being stressed.

How does Business Yoga work?
Business yoga sounds fancy, but it actually just means that you integrate yoga into your daily work schedule. For example by focusing on your breathing and the poses for not more than 5 minutes you can give your mind a rest from the potential stress that your job creates within you. You will be more mindful to what you are doing at that very minute and not worry about the meeting you have later that afternoon or any other work-related or social commitments.  

Are you a business owner or responsible for a number of employees? 
Since regular practice of Yoga in general can improve ones immune system and other postural disorders, it ensures a healthy and active workforce. A healthy, happy and for the most part, realxed, employee improves the quality of what he or she is working on, so in fact: the quality of your business
Providing Yoga classes to your employees allows them to meet and interact with co-workers and supervisors in a casual way that not only leads to a more efficient and sustainable manner of working but also
healthy working relationships. Having a common interest, such as Yoga, which is challenging while also being fun, can spark a friendship or increase respect.
