Sewa Singh was the resource person at this occasion. The main objective of the program was to learn a holistic approach to health and well-being of our body, mind, and spirit simultaneously.

Dr. Neelima Jerath, Director General Science City in her message said that International Yoga Day is celebrated every year on June 21 which is also known as the summer solstice because it is the longest day of the year. The theme for International Yoga Day 2022 is “Yoga for Humanity” which focuses on the numerous benefits of yoga for human health and wellness.

Col Sewa Singh said that amidst increasing distractions and stress of modern life, certain research studies have indicated that Yoga can be effective in reducing stress and improving mental well-being and general physical improvement. Like all physical exercises it can help build muscle strength, increase flexibility, boost up endurance and tune up body organs. The fact that it is less strenuous makes it safer and easier for all age groups to practice.

Dr. Munish Soin, Scientist ‘D’ welcomed the participants and requested them to perform along with the expert. The workshop started with warming up and stretching followed by Asanas including a series of Padmasanas, Sukhasan, Tadasana, Bhujang Asana and ended with Shavasana. Col Singh emphasized on performing Asanas regularly for 5 to 10 minutes daily for a happy and stress free life.
