Yoga: Practice to Preach

Objectives

The institution believes in the student’s Holistic development. The concept of wellness is what they are learners today and practitioners tomorrow need to understand the genesis of Aarogya should realize a proper physical and mental condition in their own life and then should deliver to society.

Yoga Shastra, the most vibrant & acknowledge segment in health science, is practiced for students to have the ability to sustain mental/societal pressures and gain physical health, especially stamina to serve long working hours.

The Context

The students first time entering our institute have undergone an unnatural lifestyle for about 3 to 4 years. Preparing for the 10+2 pattern as well as the entrance examination is a fact and they have faced it successfully. On this voyage, they were facing internal & external pressure to perform par excellence (maybe beyond capacity) and arrive at some destination. Most of the students have dreamed of MBBS and have landed at BAMS. This leads to a lower confidence level and a little bit of negation/depression that hampers performance in the BAMS program. At this juncture time, they need a support system that would take them to a life of professionalism. This practice has collaborated with JANARDAN SWAMI YOGABHYAS MANDAL, Nagpur, the Institute of more than 100 years of repute.
