Bikram Southside is hitting the road, bringing the phenomenon that is Bikram Yoga to workplaces, sports clubs and other organisations all over Glasgow. We are equipped with mobile heaters and we’re ready to get the whole city sweating!

Among the top causes of short and long term absence from work are stress and back pain, and with reports showing absence to be back up to an average of 7.6 days per employee. The resulting cost of £595 per person on average, is encouraging more and more businesses to value in investing in the health and well-being of their staff.

BENEFITS FOR THE COMPANY

  • Increases concentration and reduces stress creating greater productivity in the workforce.
  • Improves overall health creating lower levels of sickness related absence, reducing running costs and health care expenses.
  • Reduces stress- related illnesses and absenteeism.
  • Enhances attitude and outlook creating better customer service and well-being in the workplace.

Research concludes that even a short programme of yoga is effective for enhancing emotional well-being and resilience to stress in the workplace. Increasingly, doctors and chiropractors are recommending yoga for back issues, and injury rehabilitation. Research from the Harvard Medical School has proven that yoga practice helps to treat anxiety and depression and can be as effective as drug treatments and cognitive behavioural therapy.

We have a whole page dedicated to the benefit of yoga for sports performance, particularly for preventing and rehabilitation injuries. Anything good enough for Andy Murray and David Beckham is not to be sniffed at.

Energize your team and get the results you need!
