Chinese Businesses Bringing Yoga Into The Office
How Yoga is Becoming Corporate in Hong Kong
According to Diego Laje of CNN, businesses in Hong Kong are taking steps to reduce stress and improve employee relations by encouraging employees to do yoga on the clock.
Dario Calvaruso, founder of Holistic Wellness and a yoga instructor, explained the logic behind this movement: "The wellness of employees is the wellness of the company; the very strength of a company is its employees…Employees perform better, produce more, and of course, the company has bigger profits."
Calvaruso's main mission is to get a yoga mat in the cubicle, desk and office of every worker in Hong Kong. While it is a lofty goal, it is quickly gaining support from business owners in the city.
Manuele Bosetti, the general manager of the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong and Macao, told Laje that he brings his entire team to the lessons and called it a "great way to start [the] day."
The biggest issue is getting employees familiar with yoga, according to Calvaruso (via Laje): "In an office, maybe people don't know anything about yoga. They may feel discomfort, frozen shoulders; we try to release all the tension from the shoulders to give them proper alignment."
While many might believe that they need to go to a studio and have tons of equipment and specialized clothing to properly practice yoga, it turns out that simply isn't the case. All it takes is a yoga mat, a little bit of space and the patience to learn.
Although some corporations in Hong Kong are providing them free of cost for their employees, others may need to purchase yoga and Pilates mats. These yoga mats can be found at respected online vendors such as Amazon and Elite Trend HQ for as little as $38. A mat is just about the only thing that is truly required to properly do yoga and it is even possible to perform many basic poses and meditations in office attire.
Whether done in the office or at home, the benefits of yoga are beyond numerous. In addition to the physical fitness improvements, yoga also helps to improve breathing, mental health and much more.
If yoga is already bettering businesses in China, it should not be long until American companies follow suit and start encouraging their employees to strike poses in order to better the workplace and improve production.
