Stress Busting? DNC Gives Staffers Low-Price Yoga Courses
6:45 pm, February 21st | by Laura Donovan
The Democratic National Committee seems to recognize the health and mental pluses of the ancient practice, as the organization provides reasonably priced monthly classes to its employees. The offering, which BuzzFeed discovered on DNC’s disbursement sheet, is affordable but somewhat infrequent. BuzzFeed’s Zeke Miller got the details from DNC communications director Brad Woodhouse:
“It’s a health benefit for the staff – yoga session here once a month – staff pays $5 per session, so over time the initial money the DNC put up to set it up will be paid back.”
Not a bad perk, but if we we’re part of the DNC, we’d demand bi-monthly classes at the very least. If San Francisco International Airport can open a complimentary yoga room for all ticketed passengers, DNC can flesh out this yoga thing a little more.
