Why corporate yoga?
Corporate yoga sessions allow employees an opportunity to rejuvenate and refresh. Recent research indicates that companies who offer yoga and wellness programs to their employees reduce their annual health insurance premiums and thereby improve their bottom line. According to a recent study on worksite health programs by the American Journal of Health Promotion, corporations realized $3-$6 in savings for every $1 invested in wellness programs. The same study showed more than a 25% average reduction in health care costs for well designed programs.
Yoga Wellness programs typically provide a $1.00 - $5.60 return on investment (ROI) in terms of improved efficiency, effectiveness and lower absenteeism. That's as much as $2,800 ROI for each $500 Hang Zen Yogis session. Self insured companies also typically enjoy an annual reduction of $200 per employee for health costs.
