Today's work environment is demanding, to say the least. The increasing pressure in the workplace and employees working longer hours lead to stress-related problems such as anxiety, depression, headaches, hypertension, back pain, insomnia and fatigue. According to The National Institue for Occupational Safety & Health, stress-related problems cost companies $200 billion each year in absenteeism, tardiness, reduced productivity and accidents. Clearly companies benefit from having healthy, well balanced employees. This is why many companies are choosing to incorporate yoga as part of a wellness program to promote healthy choices and well-being. The latest research shows that companies who offer yoga and wellness programs reduce their health insurance premiums.

The many benefits to having yoga at the workplace include but are not limited to:
* reducing stress
