Seminar on yoga and youth 

Hisar: Department of Physiotherapy, Guru Jambheshwar University of Science and Technology, Hisar, organised a seminar on “Yoga for Youth” in the seminar hall of teaching block-4. Dr Jaideep Arya, Chairman, Haryana Yoga Council, was the chief guest. Prof Tankeshwar Kumar, Vice-Chancellor, presided over the function. Dr Arya said yoga is not only a way of life, but it can be a profession also. He said that the yoga industry has a turnover of Rs 300 crore but our share is little. The Japanese are honoured as the best judo trainers in the world. In the same way, Indian yoga trainers would be treated as the best trainers because India is the motherland of yoga. Despite Ayurveda being an Indian system, China’s trade in Ayurveda is more than India’s. We have to adopt our traditions again if we want to be ‘vishwaguru’ again.
