On the occasion of International Yoga Day, staff members at Rai University, Ahmedabad practiced Yoga following the theme “Yoga for Health” on 21st June, summer solstice, 2017, which was initiated by our Prime Minister – Shri Narendra Modiji. Yoga in India is considered to be around 5,000 year old mental, physical and spiritual practice. As truly said by Modiji ““Yoga is an invaluable gift of India’s ancient tradition. It embodies unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfillment; harmony between man and nature; a holistic approach to health and well-being. It is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and the nature. By changing our lifestyle and creating consciousness, it can help us deal with climate change.”
A yoga session was held in the campus in the morning. The event was attended by all staff members.
It was a great success as all the members present for the event went into the rhythm for breathing and performed various asans.
