The past few years have seen a steep increase in the amount of individuals participating in yoga. In the UK, there are currently over 10,000 yoga instructors. As for the number of regular yogis, it is estimated to be as many as half a million people. All of these individuals come from various walks of life including business people who even make full use of their lunch break to attend a yoga class.
Yoga tends to emphasis on a few main aspects during the one hour. This includes one’s focus, stretching of muscles, building of bones and breathing. Many individuals are afraid that if they take their lunch break to attend a yoga class, they will get tire out after that and not be able to focus on their work. However, this is a common misconception, especially among those who have never given yoga a go before. Instead of tiring you out, yoga has the ability to provide rejuvenation for both your body and mind. As an employer, it is your responsible to remain at optimum level, so that you will be able to deal with the daily stress.
According to Josephine Fairley, a boss and entrepreneur, her commitment to yoga led to her establishing a yoga studio in her home town five years ago. She felt that there wasn’t a serious yoga centre at that time, so she and her husband converted a run-down ex-Council Regency listed building into a something that they felt the town needed. In fact, all of her businesses have been built based on something that she wanted but was not available in her home town.
However, for her to be doing yoga in the studio that she owns, she would pay closer attention to details. This includes taking note of the battery in the clock that requires a replacement or considering that perhaps the skirting boards could do with another touch-up. Regardless, yoga is still able to provide her with the energy and drive that she requires to get through the entire week. She mentioned that this might not be the same for everyone, but her advice is to give yoga a chance before you come to any decision. For more of the story, you can read it here.
