In celebration of the 9th International Yoga Day, renowned Yogacharyas, Swami Dr. Sarveshwar and Swami Sajjananand, disciples of His Holiness Ashutosh Maharaj, the founder and head of Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan (DJJS), conducted a yoga session to impart knowledge about various yoga postures and breathing exercises. The event, held at Melton witnessed an enthusiastic participation of individuals eager to enhance their physical and mental well-being.
During the session, Dr. Sarveshwar emphasised the importance of yoga in maintaining a healthy body and mind. Referring to the Yoga Sutras composed by Maharishi Patanjali, he explained how practicing yoga can help individuals achieve overall wellness. A sound mind, he stated, resides in a sound body, highlighting the correlation between physical health and mental focus.
He further emphasised the lifelong benefits of regular yoga practice, asserting that it can shield individuals from various diseases.
Participants were introduced to simple yet effective yoga postures such as Tadasana, Vrikshasana, Veerbhadrasana, Tulasana, Mandukasana, and more.
The experts provided valuable insights on how these postures can help alleviate conditions like back pain, diabetes, hernia, migraine, headache, cervical issues, sciatica, obesity, arthritis, asthma, and sinus problems.
In addition to the postures, attendees were taught essential yogic breathing exercises including Nadishodhan, Anulom-Vilom, and Bhramari Pranayama. The Swamis highlighted the unique benefits of each technique. Nadishodhan Pranayama, for instance, was described as a powerful practice that purifies all 72,000 nerves of the body simultaneously, offering relief from neurological and skin-related ailments.
Anulom-Vilom Pranayama was praised for its ability to enhance blood circulation in both hemispheres of the brain, reducing the risk of paralysis. Bhramari Pranayama, on the other hand, was presented as an effective method to address hypertension, migraines, and memory-related issues.
