    According to yoga tradition, the chakras are part of the subtle body, a part of you that you can’t see or touch. It’s where your energy flows, which is why it’s also referred to as the energy body. A well-tuned asana practice can free up energy and stimulate an imbalanced chakra, paving the way for that wonderful internal shift for which yoga is known. A Special YOGA Session was successfully conducted on “Introduction to Chakras and post- COVID complications” by the Yoga and Health Hub on 18 June 2021.

    Yoga sessions were conducted on “Head, Neck and Shoulder” on 4th and 11th June, 2021. Active participation was seen throughout the session.  Yoga for tense neck and shoulders are asanas or poses that are targeted towards the spine since our neck and shoulders are connected to the spinal area. Yoga for neck and shoulders works towards creating flexibility in the spine and breathing helps one calm mind by relieving pain and stress. Yoga for stiff shoulders and neck also targets the muscles in neck and shoulders by stretching and strengthening them helping in easing their natural movements and enhancing the body’s ability to work and do other activities without straining these areas.
