Yoga is for everyone.
What? Yoga is not for me! At least this is what some our Paryavaran Mitra helpers thought when invited to participate in yoga sessions in Shikohabad. Isn’t this only for people who have sedentary lifestyles, they asked.
To explain and dispel the myths, Paryavaran Mitra first held a discussion where the benefits of Yoga were explained in a simple and lucid manner. Before beginning the stretches, our audience was completely convinced that Yoga enables a healthy balance of mind and body. It empowers you to function with integrity in any chosen path of work- as a farmer or as an office worker.
Within a few sessions, they had all changed their minds and two of our helpers, Praveen and Hari Singh are keen to teach others. Our helpers who come from the heartland of India, from our villages will now take the art of Yoga back to their communities and enable many others to benefit from its practice.
