A professional doctor and Kurnool MP S. Sanjeev Kumar said that yoga was all about striking the right balance between the body and mind to keep oneself healthy.

“Yoga asanas can help people avoid medicines and cure many diseases,” he said at a programme organised by the Kurnool Municipal Corporation to mark the International Yoga Day at the Outdoor Stadium in the city.

Young experts Prasanna, a software engineer, and Lalana, a student, demonstrated a few yoga postures to a gathering of politicians, officials and students .

City Mayor B.Y. Ramaiah said the KMC would make all-out efforts to introduce yoga in all the schools in the city along with the physical drills and exercises. He said 50% of the diseases can be prevented or cured just by practising yoga on a regular basis. Panyam MLA Katasani Rambhupal too showed keen interest in performing yoga asanas.
