More than 100 yoga enthusiasts including faculty members, staff and students came together and hit the mat for International Yoga Day celebrations at IIT Ropar on June 21, 2017.

A three-hour long programme was held at the Multipurpose Hall of IIT Ropar. The Yoga session was held in the presence of Acharya Shirva Sudhesh Chand from Mysore. A total of 15 Asanas were performed including basic Yoga asanas, Shalabasana, Pawanmuktasana, Makrasana to name a few followed by breathing exercises like Kaapalabhaati and Pranayanam and meditation. The main session was followed by therapeutic and Q&A sessions.


IIT Ropar organised the programme to spread awareness of yoga in all aspects, both for the uninitiated as well as the practitioners. Yoga Acharya Chand said, “A regular yoga practice can offer all kinds of mental and physical health benefits. Some, like improved flexibility are clearly evident. Others, including mental clarity and stress reduction may be more subtle but are just as powerful.”


Addressing on the occasion, Prof. Sarit. K. Das, Director IIT Ropar said, “Yoga brings harmony in all walks of life and thus, is known for disease prevention, health promotion and management of many lifestyle-related disorders.”


Yoga practice classes are already being run daily morning in the campus , covering shanthimanthra, warming up exercises, suryanamaskar, simple asanas, pranayama and savasana.


On this occasion, Dr. S.R.S Iyengar from the Department of Computer Science, IIT Ropar, said, “It is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and the nature. By changing our lifestyle and creating consciousness, it can help us deal with climate change. Let us work towards adopting an International Yoga Day.”
