International Yoga Day “Yoga for Health – Yoga at Home”.
Every year, June 21 is recognised as International Yoga Day but due to social distancing measures adopted by most countries, the theme set by United Nations for this year is “Yoga for Health – Yoga at Home”. The World Health Organization mentions yoga as a means to improve health in its Global Action Plan on Physical Activity 2018–2030: More active people for a healthier world.
Yoga is a great preventative
“When you do Yoga with right breathing it helps you to massage the internal organs of your body and at the same time keeps you healthy physically as well, so it keeps you healthy inside out. When we do meditation, it helps to sharpen our mind and makes us more focused. I believe Yoga is a great preventative as it keeps away any illness, helps in battling depression and anxiety. So, for me yoga is about fitness of mind and body”- Dr. Blossom Kochhar, Founder & Chairperson of the Blossom Kochhar Group of Companies institutionalized.
First wealth is health
“I really believe in staying positive and taking it day by day, so to alleviate stress I delve into Yoga and meditation. I believe that the first wealth is health. When the world around us is feeling chaotic, I can have a space to go inward with the help of Yoga” – Archana Aggarwal, Eminent Jewellery Designer.
“Yoga helps me reconnect with my mind…
“Yoga helps me reconnect with my mind, body & soul. We’re so busy in our lives that we don’t get time to just be, yoga is that getaway for me. That refreshed feeling after the morning yoga is all I need to get through every day. It has taught me to challenge and reconnect with myself.”- Ruchita Bansal, Founder & Creative Director.
Yoga is a self-management tool
“The key to a successful life lies in the sublime art of detachment, discipline and harmony. The Rig Veda defines Yoga as a union of the material and spiritual worlds, and lays out guidelines to achieve a balance between the mind, heart and resolution. Yoga is essential to keep growing mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually, to channel our inner creativity with an eloquent expression.
Yoga is a self-management tool, vital in achieving a healthy sense of power and freedom. It is the art of proper action that reminds us to stay fluid and present in the moment, mindfully coexisting with time. Action is movement with intelligence. The world is filled with movement. What the world needs is more conscious movement, more action”. – Interior Designer Punam Kalra Creative Director of I’m the Centre for Applied Arts.
Yoga helps me to maintain balance
Yoga helps me to maintain balance, from entirely keeping one fit and giving glowing skin, it is also great in the healing process. Apart from individualistic, I also prefer couple yoga as well. It is a practice where couples get into yoga postures, mediation together. It helps in maintaining fitness and soul connection. It is a great way to create a foundation for confidence, intimacy and understanding in a relationship. – Aashmeen Munjaal, Director Star Salon and Academy:
