I am a leadership and executive coach with over 25 years in business. I also teach yoga and meditation.
Some of my yoga friends have judgment about big business. Some of my business colleagues have judgment about new age yoga types. The reality is that each camp – yoga and business – have more similar practices and mindsets than they realize.
Both require great discipline and are about employing self mastery to achieve success. Self mastery cannot happen without the uniting of body, mind and spirit focused on an intention.
My business challenges give me fodder for the yoga mat. My yoga practice gives me what I need to face my business challenges – a calm mind, strong body, clear emotions and a resilient & vital spirit. They feed each other.
Stanton Kawer, the Chief Executive Office & Chairman of Blue Chip Marketing Worldwide, articulated the benefits of yoga for an executive so well: “yoga helps make me a more effective CEO by reorienting my outlook on life–my buoyancy of spirit.”
