Introduction:

Root of yog is India which was introduced by maharishi Patanjali before 5000 years ago. The concept was developed for main aim of self-realization at that time but with the passage of time and era its aim changes to mental peace as well as physical benefits. Yog is nearly 5000 years old concept, which was developed by Indian sage Maharishi Patanjali. The yog given by Patanjali has eight parts viz; Yama (external moral/ethical discipline), Niyama(internal moral/ethical strength), Asana(yogic postures), Pranayama(proper breathing for vital energy), Pratyahara(sense withdrawal), Dharana(focus/concentration), Dhyana(meditation) and Samadhi (total absorption). Due to yoga blood flow increase in the body and also oxygen supply increase in the body due to that every part of the body gets more energy and as a result work capacity of human being increase (Anon., 2011a).

3.1  Yog is a science

Yoga is a science, and not a vague, dreamy drifting or imagining. It is an applied science, a systematized collection of laws applied to bring about a definite end. It takes up the laws of psychology. Applicable to the unfolding of the whole consciousness of man on every plane, in every world (Bhayani, 2005).

 Yoga Myths

            Yoga Sessions require lot of space and time.-It is not necessary to keep the Yoga session long, it can be customized as per requirement. Even a 15 minutes rapid session can yield good results. There need not be dedicated separate session, Yoga can be done while sitting on the chair or standing in the desk space area.

j.        Yoga is passive and yield slow results.-Yoga comprises of different simple asana (poses) and breathing techniques, which if practiced properly can yield wonderful and fast results.

k.       It is burden on management in terms of money and time.- Companies that invest time and resources in a company-based wellness culture, with the focus on ‘maintenance’ rather than ‘repair’, can expect major returns on investment. Upbeat, energetic employees result in a healthy, relaxed environment with less absenteeism. De-stressed, Healthy, happy, focused and alert employees have a higher productivity then those which are stressed out, fighting fatigue and have body pain.

Why corporate wellness?

We all know that the Corporate World is all about Performance, but performance at the cost of what Stress? Health hazards? Mental & Emotional breakdown?? In this rat race, the body and mind reach a state of “burn-out” which is often recognized only when a medical condition manifests, resulting in Absenteeism and Attrition (Anon., 2011c).
