Living reference work entry


Yoga and Ayurveda are two ancient traditions originating from India that emphasize multidimensional and holistic well-being of all. Workplace well-being holds a significant place for people considering the centrality of work in their lives and the sheer amount of time and effort expended. Discussing well-being from the perspectives of Yoga and Ayurveda, the chapter has three main objectives. The first objective is to elucidate the contemporary view of health, well-being, and flourishing while highlighting the prominence of workplace well-being. The second objective is to explain the common philosophy and the fundamental concepts of gunas, doshas and their vital essences, and the panchakosha that lie at the core of the two traditions to present an integrated view of well-being. And the third objective is to discuss the implications of the philosophy, view of well-being, and the underlying practices of Yoga and Ayurveda with respect to workplace and the domain of management.
