Yoga and mindfulness are widely used interventions in various workplace setups. Both originated in the East and have many common and distinct characteristics. This study is to present the parallel and distinct views of these two major schools of philosophy. We describe Buddhist perspective of mindfulness as well as the basic philosophy of Yoga. We also discuss how these traditions suffer in a similar manner due to partial adoption of the traditional practices in contemporary society. Even though these interventions are increasingly becoming popular, to the same extent deviations from traditional practices are also observed. We also evaluate the role of awareness in the practice of mindfulness and yoga in general. Finally, we try to explore the possibilities of implementing yoga and mindfulness in workplace setups.
