Large corporations, such as IBM, Microsoft, Google, AT&T, HBO, GE, and small business are using Eastern Philosophy techniques, which originated from Asian cultures, to increase productivity, aid mental and physical well-being and improve strength and flexibility while enhancing concentration for optimal workforce performance and productivity.

Our research focuses on the Eastern Philosophy techniques of yoga, and meditation and whether their normal practice improves workforce productivity?
