Yoga also holds lessons that can be applied to work-life
The rise of yoga in corporate India is evident in the increasing number of organizations introducing yoga programmes for their employees. Reebok introduced free in-house yoga sessions for its employees five years ago. Since then, 20-30 employees have been attending yoga sessions conducted by a certified trainer who comes for an hour, five days a week. The sports and fitness brand has a 3,000 sq. ft space dedicated to fitness, complete with weights, treadmills, machines and yoga mats, where the guided yoga sessions are held. “We see yoga as an important part of the mix as it helps our team members to relax their bodies and minds and develop core strength. It also helps them in becoming healthier, happier and more effective at work," says Silvia Tallon, Reebok India’s senior director.
