Lord Krishna preached in Bhagavad Gita “Samatvam yoga uchyate”. We can achieve this objective through continuous effort of physical and mental yoga practice. On a physical level, the methods include various yoga postures or ‘asanas’ that aim to keep the body healthy. Mental techniques include breathing exercises or ‘pranayama’ and meditation or ‘dhyana’ to discipline the mind.
Keeping this in mind the NSS UNIT Bhagwan Parshuram Institute of Technology took the initiative to organise yoga Week from 15th June 2022- 21 June 2022(International Yoga Day) on the theme of “Yoga Everyday for Everyone”.
