Make yoga part of your daily routine for a healthy and long life: Yogi

Lucknow, June 21 (UNI) On the 10th International Yoga Day, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath participated in a mass yoga practice held at Raj Bhavan in Lucknow on Friday.
Governor Anandiben Patel also took part in the session.
During this event, Yogi emphasised that yoga paves the way for the welfare of all humanity, transcending the limitations of country, society, and time. "By embracing yoga and connecting the entire human race, we show true respect for our ancestors and heritage," he said.
He said, "International Yoga Day has become a medium for all of us to express this respect towards this tradition of India."
The event commenced with the national anthem, followed by the presentation of the Raj Bhavan song. Chief Secretary Durga Shankar Mishra welcomed the Governor and the Chief Minister by presenting them with a Tulsi plant.

During the program, the CM expressed that it is a great privilege for all of us to remember our heritage and show respect towards Indian sage traditions on the occasion of Yoga Day. He highlighted, "We owe this opportunity to our esteemed Prime Minister Narendra Modi, whose vision and initiatives have led nearly two hundred countries worldwide to embrace International Yoga Day and align themselves with our rich Indian heritage, thus honouring and enriching our culture and traditions. There can be no greater tribute to our ancestors, traditions, and heritage than this."
He emphasized that yoga is a comprehensive knowledge that brings us together both physically and mentally. "Reflecting on the sage tradition of India reveals their profound foresight in connecting society, where they made an innovative attempt to integrate 'dharma' with yoga in this way," he said.
Yogi emphasized that according to Indian wisdom, 'Sharir Madhyam Khalu Dharma Sadhanam,' meaning all life activities are achievable through the body. "A healthy body naturally leads to a healthy mind. Yoga offers diverse disciplines suitable for everyone, whether child, youth, middle-aged, or elderly, enabling all to maintain physical and mental well-being through practice," he said.

He said "My appeal is to incorporate yoga into your daily routine. Over time, you will realize that the time you have dedicated to yoga has greatly contributed to your health and longevity, benefiting both your physical and mental well-being. If we continue this practice regularly, we will reap its full benefits."
