Yoga is an invaluable gift of India’s ancient tradition. It is a 6000 year old legacy for mental, physical and spiritual wellbeing. In order to celebrate International Day of Yoga, Symbiosis International University organized a training and practice session by Ms. Sanjana Kotwal, on 21st June.
Sanjana Kotwal also explained different breathing exercises, “Kapal bhati” that helps in digestion and also flushes out the carbon dioxide, “Shwas Patal” which controls blood pressure, “Keval Kumbhak”, “Agnisar Kriya” which is considered remedy for diabetic people, “Pranayam” which is used to increase our body immunity, “Antar Kumbhak” which is used to assimilate all the energy, “Bhramari pranayam” which is used to increase our healing capacity. An anti-aging pranayama was taught which has the power to take us out of depression. The students were also taught Surya Namaskar and were then encouraged to make yoga part of their routine.
In order to implement the teachings and encourage the students, Symbiosis has started with the 108 days Yoga challenge as well. This requires minimum of 15-20 minutes’ practice for 6 days a week. The exercise should include 2 “Suryanamskar” and 5-10 Pranayama exercise. The practice session for the same will begin from 3rd July,2017 to 31st July, 2017 and the challenge will begin from 1st August,2017 to 4th Dec, 2017.
The interactive session was rightly concluded by the quote “Yoga is the journey of the self. Through the self. To the self”.
