Yoga Workshop at IIT-Bombay by Yogastha Club

In the hustle and bustle of modern life, particularly in the digital age, finding balance and well-being is more important than ever. The Yogastha Club at IIT-Bombay recognized this need and organized a comprehensive Yoga Workshop in celebration of International Yoga Day 2024. This event was tailored for students, faculty, and employees, and was graced by the esteemed Dr. Vikas Chothe and Dr. Shwetamabari Chothe from Swasti Yoga Center. The theme for the workshop was “Nurturing Mind and Body in the Digital Age,” and it was a resounding success.

A Week of Holistic Wellness

Day 1: Pair Yoga and Circle Yoga

The workshop kicked off with pair yoga and circle yoga sessions, fostering a sense of community and connection among participants. These practices emphasized teamwork and mutual support, creating a foundation of trust and unity. The interactive nature of these sessions helped participants break the ice and engage more deeply with the practice.

Day 2: Chair Yoga and Sun Salutation

The second day focused on chair yoga and sun salutation, combined with mind-body relaxation cues. These sessions were particularly beneficial for those with limited mobility or who spend long hours at desks. The gentle yet effective chair yoga poses offered a practical approach to incorporating yoga into daily routines. Sun salutations energized the participants, setting a positive tone for the day.

Day 3: Yogic Cleansing Techniques and Pranayama

On the third day, participants were introduced to yogic cleansing techniques such as jal neti, kapalabhati, and chakshu dhauti, along with various pranayama practices. These ancient techniques are essential for detoxifying the body and mind, enhancing respiratory function, and achieving mental clarity. The hands-on experience provided a deeper understanding of the holistic benefits of yoga.

Day 4: Assessment and Advanced Asana Practice

The fourth day was dedicated to assessing progress and practicing advanced asanas with the use of props. This session aimed to improve safety and boost confidence among participants. The use of props allowed individuals to explore poses more deeply and safely, catering to all levels of experience.

Culmination and Felicitation

The workshop concluded with a heartfelt felicitation ceremony. Shachi and other members of the Yogastha team honored the Swasti Yoga Center team for their invaluable contribution. Participants expressed their appreciation, sharing positive feedback and reviews, highlighting the transformative impact of the workshop.

As a token of appreciation, the Yogastha team was presented with ecological upcycled bags, symbolizing the commitment to sustainability. Additionally, participants will be awarded certificates from the YCB-AYUSH Ministry on International Yoga Day, 21 June, recognizing their dedication and participation in this enriching journey.

Conclusion

The Yoga Workshop organized by the Yogastha Club at IIT-Bombay was more than just an event; it was a transformative experience that nurtured the mind and body in the digital age. The diverse range of activities, expert guidance from Dr. Vikas Chothe and Dr. Shwetamabari Chothe, and the enthusiastic participation of the IIT-Bombay community made this workshop a remarkable success. As we celebrate International Yoga Day, let’s continue to embrace the holistic benefits of yoga, fostering a balanced and healthy lifestyle in our ever-evolving digital world.
