Yoga and meditation continue to attract attention from B.C. workplaces and institutions

Darpan News Desk, 18 May, 2017
  • Yoga and meditation continue to attract attention from B.C. workplaces and institutions
From easing the symptoms of breast cancer treatments to coping with stress and anxiety, the number of studies showing the benefits of meditation and yoga are constantly growing and organizations throughout Canada, including B.C., are taking notice.
 
According to the Carleton University’s independent newspaper The Charlatan, several schools across Canada, including Vancouver, have recently implemented mindfulness practices into school or after-school curriculum, some of which are being considered for the replacement of detention periods.
 
Vancouver-based consultants offer businesses the opportunity to implement corporate yoga and meditation specialized programs into the workplace.
 
The Canadian Mental Health Association has a Getting Loud for Mental Health annual campaign that includes holding yoga and meditation classes on site at workplaces.
 
Students of the Isha Foundation’s Inner Engineering Program are not at all surprised that schools, health organizations and workplaces are either implementing programs or at least talking about the benefits yoga and meditation provide.
 
Greater Vancouver resident and electrical and computer engineer Prasad Sristi, who is the analytics business unit vice-president of a U.S. based software services company, is a recipient of Inner Engineering who says the program has changed his life. 
 
Sristi found the meditation taught during Inner Engineering to be the most effective for him as they gave him increased energy, he maintains.  “With my tough travel schedule and having to work with a global team across time zones, I'm very thankful to have this tool that enables me to maintain a sense of calmness in my internal world irrespective of what happens in the outside world,” says Sristi.
  
Classified as one of the world’s most respected and contemporary gurus, Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, a New York Times bestselling author, advisor to the United Nations and one of India’s 50 most influential people, has offered the program to thousands around the world, who have reported feeling many positive results from the experience.
