Yoga is the spiritual face of Ayurveda, in fact these two are the two different facets of a coin,” Dr Tanuja Nesari, Director All India Institute of Ayurveda said.
Speaking during an event on the run-up to the ninth International Day of Yoga in Mumbai, Dr Nesari added, “Yoga Day, observed annually on June 21st, has become a global phenomenon, spreading its transformative benefits across borders. AIIA under Ministry of Ayush understands the power of yoga to enhance physical strength, mental clarity, and emotional harmony, aligning perfectly with its vision of promoting holistic health practices”
Dr Hansa Yogendra, Director Yoga Institute, Mumbai, said, “In today’s world gathering information is very easy, we don’t have to struggle unlike before. But do you all think that people are healthier now, the answer is no as application of knowledge is not being used. Today we don’t apply what we learn. Yoga teaches us to lead a balanced life and it should be practised daily to lead a healthy and happier life.”
The Yoga protocol will inspire and motivate individuals to explore the limitless possibilities of their bodies. The other activities like lecture series, workshops, etc will help participants gain a deeper understanding of Yoga and its importance in our day-to-day life.
