Yoga at Work: A Stress Reduction Guide
5-1/2" x 8-1/2", softcover,
The fast-paced and demanding environment of the typical healthcare facility can take its toll on clinical and non-clinical staff.
Left unchecked, stress mounts and can spill over into negative interactions with patients, coworkers, and others.
Now you can help your staff reduce stress with timeless yoga techniques updated for the modern healthcare facility.
Noted yoga instructor and author Michaeline Kiss has created Yoga at Work: A Stress Reduction Guide especially for your clinical and non-clinical staff. In it she presents 23 exercises that can be done in just one to two minutes each either sitting at a desk or standing.
The exercises are divided into four sections:
Refreshers. These simple movements take a minute or less each and improve circulation and release tension in the shoulders, neck, jaw, eyes, wrists, and hands. These techniques can be used throughout the day — especially during long periods working with a keyboard and monitor.
Breathing. One of the core yoga techniques, the breathing exercises will show your staff how to use their own calming breath to reduce stress.
Shoulders, Neck and Lower Back. These exercises relax the muscles and release tension in the problem areas of the shoulders, neck and lower back. They can be done seated or standing in less than two minutes each.
Concentrations. These simple exercises help take attention away from stressful situations and provide a quick, on-the-spot break from the workplace.
By using these exercises your staff will learn to:
- Feel more in control as they work with patients,
- Release muscles and ease tension in their shoulders, neck and lower back,
- Ease the effects of repetitive motion tasks, and
- Increase their focus and attention.
To learn more about Yoga at Work, you may read Part II: Breathing. Youll see just how much useful information is packed into a brief half page of this practical guide.
To help you get the most from your training program, youll also receive a copy of the Leaders Guide.
