corporate yoga

The relationship goal between your corporate organisation  and Full Circle is  to boost happiness, creativity, innovation & productivity in every member of the workforce.

Many modern corporate organisations are now embracing regular yoga sessions as an integral part of an inhouse wellbeing program. Research has shown that investing in your staff with a program that enhances their physical and mental health will provide a positive return on investment, keeping your staff both physically and mentally fit.

Our goal is to minimise workplace stress, increase productivity and enhance staff morale with tailored and workplace specific yoga programs. Our yoga practice is primarily hatha yoga, practice that is suitable for all abilities, focusing on stretching and breathing techniques.

Why introduce yoga programs within your organisation?
Full Circles corporate yoga sessions will keep your employees fit, healthy and flexible in both body and mind. The sessions are tailored to your organisational needs and can provide a wide range of benefits that are a direct result of reduced stress and improved physical health.
Where are the sessions held?
For employees that are time limited or finding it increasingly difficult to create that work/life balance, having yoga sessions held directly onsite, can prove a simpler solution for them and can be the little nudge they need to transform their lifestyle.
What are the benefits of yoga practice?
Our current corporate yoga participants continually report having improvements to concentration, decrease in injury and illness, greater clarity of mind and focus in work post sessions, as well as significant increases to performance and productivity. Most importantly that all state they have as deeper awareness of their physical and mental health and wellbeing
What are the benefits to your organisation?
Decreased illness and absenteeism  – Workplace stress causes a range of physical and emotional illnesses, including anxiety and depression. Stress suppresses the immune system so that it takes longer to recover from non-stress-related illnesses having a direct result in loss of work hours. The stretching and strengthening aspects of yoga are beneficial for preventing and alleviating back pain as just one of the problems that can occur for regular office/desk workers.

Reduced worker’s compensation claims – Stress-related WorkCover claims account for almost 30% of all WorkCover claims and are about twice as expensive as other claims. It may also reduce claims for muscular and joint problems which can be prevented and alleviated with workplace yoga.

Team work and staff relations – When people are stressed at work,  or overloaded and fatigued, emotions are much quicker to surface and this can have a direct impact on working relationships, tempers can flare leading to uncooperative, less cohesive teams  which are bad for productivity!

Higher productivity – All of the factors mentioned above, plus the fact that staff have less clarity of focus in decision making when they’re over-stressed. Putting in place effective stress management strategies and programs such as yoga at work will increase productivity and improve your bottom line.

Higher staff morale – Reducing stress in the workplace means your employees are happier overall, with the added benefit that staff feel better about themselves when they have an exercise routine. Happy staff are effective staff!!
