WHEN THE INDIAN COMMUNITY CELEBRATED YOGA DAY IN NIGERIA

The event took place at the Indian High Commission premises in Victoria island, Lagos

According to a frontline member of the Indian community in NIgeria, Yoga is for many, a hobby.

He said, "Prior to this day, Yoga has been practiced in India for over 10,000 years. Few years ago, after PM Modi came to power, he took it to a higher level. 




Yoga is a way of giving health and happiness to you, along with harmony and peace. It is a form of keeping oneself healthy through the ancient practices. PM Modi proposed Yoga to the United Nations to be adopted on 21st June which is the longest day on the earth. So it is a significant day to give attention to yourself and your energies which comes from the sun. This day is therefore celebrated all around the world. Some nations supported it and it was passed in the United Nations. From there, he gave order to all Indians to organize Yoga activity on that day symbolically."



But is yoga a religion! No, it's a sport activity, a fitness activity or an exercise. In exercise your breath and mind are not together but in yoga they are kept together, you are not listening to music or any other thing. You are focusing on yourself and on your mind."




So what are the benefits of Yoga?

The benefits are numerous and they include healthy living. It heals different ailments and pains in the body. Only a yoga guru can tell you what yoga to do for what issues you have. For instance you have a knee or back pain; it is a Yoga expert that can tell you which form of Yoga to do. Most importantly by doing Yoga, you are giving more to yourself to know yourself more and more.
