About this event

Every day after you wake up, the health of your body sets the tone for the day. Any ailment in the body can put a damper on your enthusiasm and become a hindrance in performing daily tasks. There are many yoga asanas that can help you stay healthy physically, but that’s not the only prerequisite for holistic well-being. Your mental health is equally crucial.

Your brain plays a phenomenal role in carrying out daily tasks. Your ability to respond, comprehend, perceive and function well is related to the health of your brain.

Just like exercising helps keep the body in a good shape, so do brain exercises for the intelligence powerhouse. Yoga asanas, particularly,help in the better overall functioning of the human body.

Daily physical activity is essential for releasing stress and restlessness from the body and, in turn, the mind as well. A new study (2) finds that just 20 minutes of yoga stimulates brain functions associated with the ability to focus and retain information.
