Business World Warms to Yoga
It’s early days yet, but more corporations are adopting yoga programs to help employees cope with stress and be more active in the workplace. Large organizations such as IBM, Nike and Apple now offer yoga training. One New York City entrepreneur, Bruce Van Horn, has developed business-friendly classes with creatively described postures such as “opening bell” and “firm footing in a changing marketplace,” instead of the usual asana references, according to Forbes magazine. Other trainers are customizing programs to counter typical workplace issues such as low-back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome and poor posture.
Opportunities for mind-body movement professionals should increase as yoga, meditation, tai chi and Pilates programs continue to fill the mainstream.
