Benefits of yoga

We all know that yoga has multiple therapeutic benefits. But, those who practice it for years say that yoga helps them understand the concept of emotional intelligence in broader terms.

With a little bit of discipline and determined effort to nurture healthier lifestyle, yoga-lovers say that there is much more to the ancient regimen.

Apart from increased flexibility, balanced energy levels and a composed mind, for some, yoga helps to slow down the ageing process. It is hard to believe that R. Venkateswara Rao, managing director of RVR Projects (P) Ltd, is 69-year-old. Ask him the secret behind his youthful looks, he immediately says, “I have been practising yoga for the last 20 years. Yoga has the power to align your body and emotions together. It lets you work in a composed manner. All you have to do is invest 30-45 minutes a day on yoga and see its wonderful impact on your physical and mental wellbeing.”

Yoga is more than a mere workout for G. Samba Siva Rao, managing director of Sravan Shipping Services (P) Limited. He says yoga helped him get rid of acute spondilitis. “Thankfully, I was able to join a yoga clinic as soon as I identified my problem, five years back. Today, I am able to balance my work-life better,” he says.

Keeping the growing health problems in view, Ch. Sri Krishna, director, Yoga Health Clinic, has initiated the second Yoga Health Clinic at Rushikonda. He says, “The idea is to encourage youngsters realise the importance of health before it is too late. The hilltop provides the right ambience to relax and explore from within.”

Since yoga helps to relieve stress to a great extent, CEO of Symbiosis Technologies O. Naresh Kumar says that he wants to encourage his employees to spare at least an hour during or after office hours at the clinic practising yoga.
