In order to design a program based on the promotion of organizations health through a specific yoga intervention, the Community of Practice (CoP) We do health, we do yoga. For an organization to be healthy, it must allow workers to reconcile work and family life, promote reasonable hours, disseminate health care by example, facilitate a good work environment, and prioritize inter and multidisciplinary teamwork and cooperation. to achieve the established goals, in alignment with the objectives of the company. It should also encourage workers to participate in social projects and health education, both for employees and for the groups with which they are related. One of the most common ways to promote a healthy organization is to create programs aimed at workers that contain specific actions, such as, for example, the implementation of a yoga practice program. Illnesses caused by work environments are usually related to osteoarticular problems (neck pain, low back pain...) and stress management5,6. The practice of yoga can help prevent these types of problems or minimize their effects. As a final result, a pilot yoga intervention was defined, implemented and evaluated in the work environment (in this case, government institutions) to promote healthy organizations.
