Embrace Yoga Into Daily Choreography For Maximum Benefits: Expert | Patna News

Patna: After two years of restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic, International Yoga Day will be celebrated outdoors on Tuesday. The theme set by the United Nations (UN) for the eighth day of yoga this year is “Yoga for Humanity”.
As mentioned in ancient scriptures with roots in India, yoga fully benefits those who adopt it in their daily duties, experts have claimed.
“Yoga exercises are scientifically proven to provide many benefits in just 10-20 minutes of regular practice as they strengthen the lungs and heart, manage stress and rejuvenate the human body,” said Dr. Ratnesh Choudhary, Head of Yoga and Senior Physiotherapist at Indira Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences (IGIMS), Patna.
Dr. Choudhary further claimed that patients with dementia and loss of senses and memory as a post-Covid effect have found yogic practices to be very beneficial in leading a normal life.
yoga instructor Alpana Praveen highlighted the significant effect of asanas as Adho Mukha Svanasana in the cure of autism while the cobra-pose in the treatment of asthma. “Vrikshasana, Adho Mukha Shavasana and Sukhasana can increase concentration in children under 12 years old. For a healthy reproductive system, teens and adults can practice Bhujangasana. To remedy the inconsistency of digestion, Trikonasana and Titliasana are fruitful,” Alpana said.
She added, “Pawanmuktasana, Pranayam, and series of neck, wrist, shoulder, knee, and hip rotations can help seniors have a calm mind with a fit body.”
Experts have claimed that as body type varies from person to person, body requirements also vary. In order to gain the benefits of yoga, the body should not be under too much stress while practicing the asanas as this could be detrimental to the body. “We train our clients with asanas according to their body’s needs. For example, there is a separate set of asanas for a diabetic person, an obese person or a fitness enthusiast,” said Atul, a freelance yoga instructor.
