What science says about yoga at work...
Participation in a workplace mind-body stress relief program produced a decrease in perceived stress and problems with sleep, increased emotional health, improved breathing rate, heart rhythm coherence, and lowered blood pressure (McCraty, et al, 2003; Wolever et al, 2012)
Mindfulness meditation has been shown to create positive lasting changes on affect, and in brain and immune function (Davidson, et al, 2003; Holzel, et al, 2010).
Participants engaged in a workplace yoga program, reported improvement in mood, well-being, and resilience to stress after a 6 week yoga interventionin the workplace (Hartfiel, et.al., 2011)
