Yoga for Students

Yoga is for all – Yoga takes a holistic approach to the development and well-being of body mind and spirit. The preventive and promotive aspects of yoga are based on modern scientific principles by which a common man who is not ‘Yogi’ per se can accrue the benefits of Yoga at the physical, mental and spiritual plane leading to healthy and happy life. Yoga also helps in the management of various diseases particularly on the ones related to life style.

In order to pass on the benefits of Yoga to the community, in particular to the students of the University, the Department of Sports Science and Yoga has launched a YOGA FOR STUDENTS program in January 2019.
