Workplace wellness goes by many names, but what do programs like that really look like? There are all kinds of options for employers to consider when offering a benefits program for their workers. From memberships to personalized sessions the possibilities can seem limitless. At Evolution, we design and offer programs to build healthier teams using the tools we know that work. What does workplace wellness with EPY look like? Read on to find out.

What is a Wellness Program? 

Evolution Power Yoga’s Workplace Wellness Programs (aka: Corporate Wellness or Corporate Yoga) are sessions designed to support employees and teams in their overall health and wellbeing, with the intention of creating a stronger, happier workforce. The Wellness Team at Evolution has developed sessions that focus on various practices including movement, mindfulness, meditation, and more. These sessions are for all levels of experience, from beginner to advanced, and can be customized to meet the needs of the group. 

Who is a Wellness program for?

Workplace wellness sessions can be for any company or organization looking to provide these services to its employees. Whether you work for a school district, government agency, non-profit organization, or private company, employees and volunteers from all types of work environments benefit from practices that stimulate physical, mental, and overall wellbeing.

Tax season putting a ton of pressure on your finance firm? Schedule some biweekly yoga classes for your team to unwind and reset. First responders putting in long hours protecting and saving lives? Book a series of mindfulness sessions tailored to help the group decompress and increase resiliency to avoid burnout. From teachers to truck drivers, the tools we provide in wellness sessions are relevant for workers of all types.

Why invest in Wellness programs?

Workplace wellness can add a huge return on investment by boosting focus, productivity, attendance, and employee satisfaction and retention rates. All of which is good for the company’s bottom line. Enhanced attention, reduced stress, and improved immunity are just a few of the benefits people experience when they’re given time and access to wellness practices through their employer. Our workforces are feeling more pressure than ever to deliver in their respective fields. Investing in the physical and mental health of individuals and teams creates a happier, more collaborative environment where people feel their best, thus being able to put their best into their work and their personal lives.

Where do Workplace Wellness sessions happen?

Evolution’s wellness programs are versatile and accessible. All of our live programs are able to be held in a virtual format. We provide the digital platform and host the sessions for your group in real-time. 

If your business is local to one of our studio locations offsite options may be available. The programs can be brought to you in-house where you have space to accommodate the work of the sessions.  

Live sessions not going to work with the varying schedules of your team? No problem. We have a fully digital studio packed with on-demand content that employees can access on their breaks or on their own time.
