To commemorate the Prime Minister’s Guardian Yoga Ring programme at the International Day of Yoga, Confederation of Indian Industry organised a Yoga session for its staff and members in Chandigarh.
“This year’s theme for International Day of Yoga is Yoga for Humanity. Yoga encapsulates the essence of humanity and emphasizes the values of mindfulness, moderation, discipline, and perseverance. It is heartening to know that this initiative, which has quintessentially been the archetype of Indian civilization and culture, has united the world. CII congratulates the Government of India for their splendid efforts in making Yoga a part of the international culture”, said Mr Rohit Grover, Chairman, CII Mohali Zone & Managing Director, JREW Engineering Limited.
Yoga enthusiasts among CII staff and members came together to perform yoga and explored the benefits of yoga asanas that help keep the body and mind healthy. Col Harbaksh Singh Dham effectively guided the participants through the Upa-Yoga asanas that activate the joints, muscles, and energy system, bringing ease to the whole system. Col Dham retired from the Indian after serving the country for 32 years. He has served at the Siachen Glacier, Andaman and Nicobar Islands, and Barmer & Burma Borders. He has also been part of the Kargil War, Operation Rhino in Assam and Operation Rakshak in Kashmir.
