At first glance, career growth and yoga might seem like an unlikely pairing; however, the discipline, focus, self-awareness, and confidence you build through a regular yoga practice will positively affect all aspects of your life, including your career.
Mindfulness + Patience
If you have spent any time at all on your yoga mat, you already understand the patience required to continually show up and work on yourself both physically and mentally. Cultivating a strong yoga practice is a constantly evolving process that requires consistency, patience, and mindfulness which all enhance the ability to stay calm in stressful situations. Yoga teaches us that all things are possible with patience, perseverance, and a growth mindset.
Optimize your health/ relieve stress
Career growth, regardless of your chosen industry, is inevitable when you learn to effectively manage your stress, prioritize the important tasks, focus on the controllable, and let go of the things outside of your control. Yoga is the perfect vehicle to teach these important lessons, as well as to enhance your overall health and well-being. Movement, meditation, and breathwork are essential components of true and lasting wellness. Join us for 30 days of unlimited yoga, online and in the studio, and see for yourself!
Meet new people
One of the unexpected ways in which yoga may enhance your career growth is simply through the people you will meet. Yoga unites people from various industries, backgrounds, ethnicities, and age groups which means you never know who you might meet at your next class. In fact, at Ohana, we have a networking group for our all-access members created for exactly this reason. I have met business partners, clients, friends, and even a ski instructor for my kids — all through Ohana. If you decide to embark on a yoga teacher training course, you’ll meet even more people!
