June 21st has been declared International Yoga Day by PM Narendra Modi. Since then the day has been widely celebrated across the globe including New York’s Central Park. This year, television celebrities share the importance of yoga in their lives.
Ssharad Malhotraa – Yoga is surely a good option and alternate to going to the gym. Few of my friends are into yoga. Yoga is being preferred by lot of people. A combination of gym and yoga alternative seems to be a good idea.
Asmita Sood – Yoga is a good alternative to gymming. It makes you focus on your breathing and concentrate your energies in one place. It’s more of a matter of a strong mind which is much needed in today’s world. Yoga not only gives us an agile and fit body but it also keeps our minds healthy.
Poonam Preet – Any activity that helps me keep fit makes me happy. I exercise as well as I do yoga. But my priority is Yoga because it is very convenient for me as an actress since Yoga only requires a mat to be perform and no other equipment’s. I do yoga at home as well as in my room/vanity at the shooting location.
Shashank Vyas – Well I have not done yoga yet. So no clue about it. But yes I have heard a lot about it. i would learn Yoga soon as gymming sometimes becomes monotonous and I a meager to learn new things in life.
Saurabh Pandey – Basic purpose of yoga is to bring harmony between your inner and the outer world, bring harmony between Soul and body, Inner organs and outer body. Yoga and Gymming can go hand in hand. Like I do. I do my gym and end it with Surya Namaskar. Its one of the best and simplest yoga you can involve in your exercise regime. Their is much more to yoga but at least if time doesn’t permits you to do all at least you can add a few and enjoy the benefits of both.
Sandeep Anand – Yoga is not another kind of religion. Human intellect is evolving in a certain way right now. For the first time, large numbers of people think for themselves. Whether they think straight or not and this is a big step. We feel relax after doing yoga. And I do yoga only because it is much more better than gymming.
Dhruv Singh – Yoga is very important in day to day because its also a stress reliever and its better than gymming. And its very close to nature. You can stretch and tap body. There are lots of yoga asanas and they are better than gymming. There is lot of stress in people’s life so to distress that you have to do yoga.
Amal Sehrawat – Yoga gives you an opportunity to massage, clean and vitalize internal organs, and most importantly brain ( though depression patients are not advised meditation ). Its popularity became evident, when, west got inspired by it and made it part of their lifestyle. Yoga works on your outer body internally.
Laksh Lalwani – I do them both. I would not say yoga is an alternative. For flexibility and stretching out my muscles I prefer doing yoga. I even do voice yoga for my throat. I plan my workouts in such a manner where I get a space of doing yoga post my weight lifting sessions. So yeah, the Y and G combo works the best for me.
Anshul Trivedi – The word yoga means union. Yoga goes beyond our regular exercise. I read a beautiful quote somewhere where they said that Yoga is a union of body, mind and spirit. According to me it’s more of a fine tuning of energies then a mere exercise. It can never be an alternative to gym. Both concepts of exercises are very different. It’s a commendable initiative by our PM Shri Narendra Modi to recommend United Nations General Assembly to declare 21st June as ‘International Yoga Day’
