the workplace work-in

 

The Workplace Work-in is a tailor-made program of either yoga, Laughter Yoga or both that is held in the workplace or at company events for the benefit of employees and employers.

 

It is designed to be accessible and enjoyable for participants and has been shown to have many positive effects on workers’ health and workplace culture.

 

Yoga in the workplace

Benefits: Yoga is extremely beneficial in counteracting the effects on the body of long hours spent sitting at the computer or in meetings. Yoga can improve general muscle pain and stiffness, relieve headaches, fatigue and stress and improve concentration and energy levels.

 

Requirements: A large room or level outdoor space with room for several participants to spread out yoga mats. Participants should wear comfortable clothing and have bare feet. Yoga routines can be as energetic or restorative as the participants request and usually last around 1 hour, including a final 10 minute relaxation.

 

Laughter Yoga in the workplace

Benefits: By introducing Laughter Yoga sessions for staff, companies have reported a happier workplace, increased efficiency, improved attention and concentration, increased sales and productivity, increased creativity and motivation, better communication and teamwork, decreased illness and absenteeism and reduced employee turnover.

 

Laughter Yoga is also a great cardio workout without the need for vigorous physical exercise, so it is perfect for busy people.

 

Requirements: Preferably a room with space for people to be able to move around freely, although a session can be held when participants are seated (such as in a lecture theatre). No special clothing or equipment is required. Sessions usually last around 45 minutes to 1 hour and include a final 10 minute relaxation.

“We had wonderful feedback on the laughter sessions. The final ‘circle’ activity proved to be the most talked about. There could not have been a better exercise to demonstrate what we can create together if we operate as ‘one team’. “
