The art of practicing yoga helps in controlling an individual's mind, body and soul, besides bringing together physical and mental discipline to achieve a peaceful body and mind. This was stated by the Deputy Chairman of State Planning Board and MLA of Jawalamukhi, while addressing the gathering at Government Senior Secondary School Jawalamukhi after participating in Yoga on the occasion of International Yoga Day-2022 organized by the Patanjali Yog Peeth.

He said that Yoga helps manage stress and anxiety and keeps us relaxed. It also helps in increasing flexibility and muscle strength besides improving respiration and energy, he added.

Giving credit of promoting Yoga in the country to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Mr. Dhawala said that it was Prime Minister Narendra Modi who proposed the idea for an International Yoga Day during his speech at the United Nations General Assembly in 2014. Prime Minister Narendra Modi called Yoga an "invaluable gift of India's ancient tradition" and called for the "harmony between man and nature".
