Ssharad Malhotraa – 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.
Shashank Vyas – Well I have not done yoga yet. So no clue about it. But yes I heard a lot about it. So going to start it soon as gymming sometimes becomes monotonous.
Aniruddh Dave- 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.
Jyotsna Chandola -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.
Mohammad Nazim – Absolutely ! 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 – I do yoga as well as gymming. 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.
Jayashree Venkatramanan 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’.
