Abstract

Globalization puts a lot of work strain on employees. This stress disrupts employees' personal and professional lives. This tension causes employee stress. This stress becomes persistent. Companies run stress management programmes, but they are ineffective. Yoga is a simple and effective approach to reduce workplace stress. Many studies have shown that it relieves workplace stress. Employees in the corporate sector often have severe workloads due to competition and other considerations. This produces stress in many employees, both positive and negative. Yoga relaxes the mind and relieves tension. In this research, we will investigate the effectiveness of Yoga among reducing workplace stress in corporate workers. A literature research of Indian and international writers was conducted to determine the impact of Yoga on workplace stress management. Yoga has been found to help employees minimise job stress. Yoga has been shown to be effective in reducing stress in the workplace. This study suggests that corporations should use yoga to manage stress and achieve their goals. Companies should enforce regular yoga sessions by competent yoga teachers/instructors to reduce employee stress.
