When most people think of workplace benefits, health insurance, vacation days, and 401ks come to mind. But office yoga classes have been a benefit in some workplaces for years. For example, Kim Orenstein, a yoga instructor in Nevada, has been regularly teaching yoga in offices for eight years. Employers say yoga helps with productivity and even can help keep costs down.
Personally speaking, having access to a yoga class during my work day has helped my practice grow by leaps and bounds. It's so convenient, I can't justify missing many of them, and it helps me keep my cool the rest of the day.
Do you have access to yoga classes at your place of employment? What are the pros and cons?
