Mindful movement classes release stress and create a sense of being open to the moment with greater ease. This can lead to more peaceful and productive days at work,

The equation is very simple really. Mindfulness helps us remain in the present moment, intentionally and non-judgmentally. This in turn allows us to be happier, more flexible, accepting of what comes. Happy people have higher IQs, are more creative and energetic.

It’s no mystery that those people are going to be outstanding employees and are going to help your company thrive.

There’s quantifiable, proven science to back this up. The annual losses to American companies each year are staggering; over five billion dollars. But, as Aetna C.E.O., Mark Bertolini found, that can be turned around. In fact, with only about a third of Aetna’s employees taking part in their companies free access to yoga and mediation, the company saved enough to give its lowest paid workers a 33% raise just from the money saved in getting back lost work time, about 62 minutes per week, which regained the company about $3000-$3500 per employee per year. Levels of negative stress and pain went down 19-28 percent. And so, workers have more to be happy about than their raises.
