Why Bring Yoga into Your Office?
- Reduction in stress. Employees are more productive if they are releasing and managing stress. ¼ of Aetna’s workforce of 50,000 who participated in at least one yoga class reported 28 % reduction in stress.
- Healthier employees. A study conducted by Dr. James E. Stahl and his team at Harvard-affiliated Massachusetts General Hospital found that people who participated in an 8-week yoga and meditation program used 43% fewer medical services than the previous year, saving on average $2,360 per person in emergency room visits alone. This means that such yoga and meditation programs could translate into health care savings of $640 to $25,500 per patient each year!
- More efficient employees. Aetna employees that participated in yoga were more effective on the job gaining 62 minute per week of productivity. This is an estimate of $ 3,000 per year per employee saved.
