Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) May 30, 2014
An astonishing 1.4 million Canadians now do yoga.
While yoga studios and fitness centers are certainly one place where people can go to experience the many benefits of yoga, more Canadian businesses are choosing to bring corporate yoga into their workplace as part of an ongoing wellness program.
Canadian taxpayers are spending an estimated $2.8 billion annually in physician visits, hospital stays, and emergency room visits. And burnout costs Canadian businesses an estimated $12 billion each year in health claims, lost productivity, and absenteeism. Canadian businesses are realizing that something must be done about this problem.
At a corporate yoga class, employees literally roll out their yoga mats in a boardroom or unused office space, and the yoga teacher comes to their office once or twice a week at the agreed upon time. Staff who participate in an on-site yoga program say the classes have made a huge difference in their busy work week in as little as just 45 minutes a week.
"The yoga classes I attend are affordable and convenient,” says Linda Meyers a client of Innergy Corporate Yoga in Vancouver, BC. “In today's business world, with meetings, conference calls, volume, economic concerns and general stress associated to these, having yoga at least once per week has become a bright light... We all need a little time just for ourselves and this is one way to reward yourself for a job well done!"
"Corporate Yoga is convenient, inexpensive, and a great solution for companies looking for a way to shrink the problem of workplace stress," says Lynn Roberts, President of Innergy Corporate Yoga, a company that is leading the way in Canada for corporate yoga. Innergy has been providing onsite yoga classes to businesses since 2004. Their service includes professional management, experienced teachers and perks for clients including a rewards program. They have currently serviced over 3,000 customers in the past ten years and are growing quickly with their yoga franchise opportunity.
