International Day of Yoga Camp Series in Kohlapur
On 21st May 2018, the Kohlapur chapter of the Medical Wing, Rajyoga Education and Research Foundation (RERF) launched its series of free Yoga camps, which was inaugurated by Mr Yogguru Rajendra Shete, Advocate Anandrao Patil, Dr Shivaji Powar, Professor Dinesh Dange, BK Pratibha Sister and Dr. BK Rashmi. The camp saw participation of active citizens from the city, who were guided about the history, origin and importance of Yoga in an individual’s life.
Prominent Yoga Guru Dr. Shivaji Powar conducted practical Yogasna practice, he also made all the attendees do breathing exercises or Pranayama, which help to balance the inner self. Yoga is not only good for the body, but is equally good for the mind. It helps an individual have clarity of mind, think clearly and make wise decisions. The participants were also made to practice guided meditation by Sister Pratibha and Sister Rashmi, which was thoroughly enjoyed by all. The event was indeed a cherished one, as the organizers also encouraged the participants to get their friends and family along for future free Yoga camps which will be organized from 21st May 2018 to 21st June 2018, concluding on Yoga day.
The organizers are indeed grateful to the Central Council for Research in Yoga and Naturopathy, Ministry of AYUSH, Government of India for their continuous support and encouragement throughout the planning and implementation of the camp. Wishing all our participants and our readers a very happy International Yoga day! Let us pledge to be fitter, healthier and happier, both in the body and the mind.
