“Yoga for Heart” – Employees at TAFE celebrate International Day of Yoga

“Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self.” says The Bhagavad Gita. Yoga, often perceived to provide physical benefits, is practiced mainly to maintain fitness and improve flexibility in the body. However, it is proven that yoga unites and aligns the mind, body and breath, making life calmer, healthier and fulfilling.

Realising the significance of this practice and the benefits it offered, the United Nations announced June 21st as the International day of Yoga and 2015 saw the inception of this annual event. “Yoga for heart” was the theme for this year, which marked the fifth International Yoga Day celebrations. With the Indian Government actively promoting this practice, the awareness among people, about the benefits of practicing this regularly, has increased rapidly.

TAFE, over many decades, has been promoting health and wellness of its employees through various sports and fitness initiatives. This year, the employees at TAFE’s Head Office celebrated yoga day by learning and performing Asanas that could be practiced regularly at their workstations. Yoga experts were invited to the office premises to guide the participants to perform the asanas in the right manner. Employees belonging to various age groups from across all departments gathered together for this event.
This celebration was a reminder for all employees to incorporate yoga in their daily routine to make life healthier and stress-free.
