How yoga can help your working environment.
And not only.
Right now we are all aware of the benefits, demonstrated throughout the history, that yoga brings to our health and psychophysical well-being. And if you're lucky enough, your Boss knows too. Or maybe that far-sighted Boss is you.
Corporate yoga: the new benefit.

Whether it is"Early morning yoga", "Lunch time yoga", "After work yoga", you already know that corporate yoga is now adopted by many progressive realities around the world. An innovative and low-cost solution (no investments are made in any machinery: fixed costs are negligible and completely deductible) useful for relieving stress, improving the working environment, reducing healthcare costs and promoting the well-being of and among colleagues and, consequently, the productivity.
