     The promotion for yoga in Gujarat has not ended with the Yoga Day celebrations. Even after June 21, yoga is set to be promoted across the state through the department of AYUSH, the Lakulish Yoga University and various other education institutes.


     After actively promoting yoga and training people in the wake of International Day for Yoga (IDY), the department of AYUSH has decided to push yoga not only as a mind and body fitness module, but also as a cure for various diseases.

Yoga sessions for civil service aspirants and government employees: The Sardar Patel Institute of Public Administration (SPIPA) for the first time is offering two separate yoga courses — for both its students and the general public. The institute, which offers various training programmes for aspirants of central and state civil service examinations as well as mid-career training to government employees, included yoga too in its training module from July 1.


     “For the general public, it would be on the first-come-first-serve basis as we have a limited capacity of 100 participants. Beyond that, any interested person have to wait. While the idea of introducing this course for the students and employees staying at the institute hostel is their physical and mental well-being, for the public, it is to open the campus …continued »
