Yoga for Stress Management

MM BGIMS introduced series of yoga sessions for students and faculty from 18th November 2017 onwards.

It was a great event and each and every student together with our entire staff enjoyed this event to the fullest. Mr. Manoj Varade ( Dy. PRO BEST ), P.hd in Communication from Mumbai University , a social worker, guided the students with different ASANAS and explained their importance in our daily life.

Yoga is a physical, mental, and spiritual practice attributed mostly to India. All effort was made to spread awareness about the benefits of yoga in life. Students got the chance to know how yoga embodies unity of mind and body. The students of MMS Sem I with the faculty performed Yoga between 9 am and 10:30 am. Different yoga postures like Shashankaasana, Bhujangasana, Pawana Muktaasana, finally ended with Pranayama and meditation. Prayers were recited before and after the programme.


In continuation of the series which started on !8th November 2017, a 2nd yoga session was conducted for students on 6th Jan 2018.

Mr. Manoj Varade enlightened students that practice of Yoga and meditation helps in relieving the stress of the students and the society as a large. He stated “Yoga is an invaluable gift of ancient Indian tradition. It embodies unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfillment; harmony between man and nature and a holistic approach to health and wellbeing. Yoga is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with ourselves, the world and Nature. By changing our lifestyle and creating consciousness, it can help us to deal with climate change.”

This was a great opportunity to imbibe the value of discipline.
