Office yoga sessions primarily focus on the middle and upper management of the organizations who spend significant portion of their time in offices, which involves sitting throughout the day, and often in front of computers.

Basically, the intensive work schedule and sitting for long durations coupled with working on computers tend to bring about many kinds of ailments like shoulder back n neck pain, eye strain, headaches etc .Something as trivial as the slippery tiles that are used in flooring the offices contribute greatly in intensifying the back pain.
Apart from doing Stress Management, Office Yoga sessions are designed to manage the following commonly occurring issues in people who work for long working hours in front of computer:

Back and neck pain – Due to long hours of forward bending the cervical area & the upper back suffer a lot of strain & when ignored for a long time leads to severe body stiffness. Simple back & neck pain if not managed adequately can cause cervical spondylitis, lumbar spondiliosis, fibromyoglia etc. Simple movements can be
incorporated in one's daily schedule that'll help in combating the pain & flex the muscles
adequately to keep the stiffness and pain at bay.

Repetitive stress injury – is a very common sight these days due to excessive usage of hands to operate computers, laptops and mobiles. Due to the position of hands for long hours the elbows, palms, fingers & wrist muscles can suffer microscopic tears. Due to an injury, the muscle contracts & gets inflamed indicated by numbness or tickling sensation in hands that might radiate to shoulder & neck. Easy to practice ergonomic exercises at regular intervals during the day can prevent such injuries.

Eye strain – Similar to repetitive stress injury, eyes also feel the strain after working for such long hours in front of a glaring computer screen. The anti-glare screens help in reducing the glare but strenuous work through out the day need more than that to relax the eyes & prevent eye injuries. Learning how to balance the visual concentration can help the individuals in reducing the eye strain significantly.

Excess fat around abdomen – Sitting for such long hours in front of the computer, without any movement can be really brutal over the abdomen as the fat starts accumulating around abdomen because due to lack of movement & exercising the fat doesn't get metabolized. A few forward bending asanas on the chair can be significantly effective to reduce the belly fat.

Lack of concentration – This is a common hassle and can be due to variety of reasons. The simplest way to manage the inability to focus or concentrate is to monitor our breathing. There are certain Yoga practices (Pranayama , Mudra and Guided Meditation) that can help in instantly directing the mind in one direction.
Inability to relax – With tons of meeting & excessive multitasking obviously strains& drains the mind and makes the individual restless and hassled. Practicing shavasana and very easy meditation practices that can be done at anytime during the day or even at the beginning of the day can effectively relax one's mind. This is definitely the key as far as stress management goes.
