Yoga in the Workplace
Regular practice of meditation and yoga is associated with changes in everyday functioning that extend beyond time periods of active practice, including enhanced capacity to pay attention, modulate emotions, and gain perspective on stressful situations. The Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health has developed a highly structured 8-week yoga based program to provide standardized yoga curriculum to develop these skills. Researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital are now conducting scientific studies to test the efficacy of this program and determine the mechanisms of action underlying beneficial effects.
