Yoga Infiltrates Insurance

It is remarkable how yoga and meditation are infiltrating corporate America. The fact that the conglomerate insurance company Aetna, based in Hartford Connecticut, is now offering daily yoga and meditation suggests the clear benefits to mind and body that the practice offers. See this New York Times article. This has positive ramifications for Prajna Yoga, as mindfulness and yoga lie at the heart of what we do. Through our training programs (i.e The Art of Teaching) we coach students in the craft of guiding both meditation and yoga posture. (Note in the article how Aetna hired two separate companies, one to teach yoga, the other mindfulness.) This story is a testimony of how a big hearted CEO, who discovers the powerful alchemy of yoga, can impact many lives.
