Key Points

  • Some of the benefits reported by the interviewed individuals include improvement in the following: self-awareness, stress management, physical health, and psychological health.
  • A common theme in interviews revealed “…individual stress levels negatively affected the organization so that both the quality of work suffered and the work environment became inhospitable as a result of stressed members”.
  • Other individual benefits included: greater bonding, mental or psychological flexibility, and greater ability to work out conflicts with less competition.
  • Overall, yoga benefited the organization’s health as both internal work relationships were further developed and external client/vendor relationships improved.
