About Yoga

Yoga is a mind and body practice. Various styles of yoga combine physical postures, breathing techniques, and meditation or relaxation. Yoga is an ancient and complex practice, rooted in Indian philosophy. Yoga offers physical and mental health benefits for people of all ages. And, if you’re going through an illness, recovering from surgery or living with a chronic condition, yoga can become an integral part of your treatment and potentially hasten healing. It began as a spiritual practice but has become popular as a way of promoting physical and mental well-being. There are many different yoga styles, ranging from gentle practices to physically demanding ones. Differences in the types of yoga used in research studies may affect study results. This makes it challenging to evaluate research on the health effects of yoga.

About Meditation

Meditation has a long history of use for increasing calmness and physical relaxation, improving psychological balance, coping with illness, and enhancing overall health and well-being. Meditation is a mental exercise that trains attention and awareness. Its purpose is often to curb reactivity to one's negative thoughts and feelings, which, though they may be disturbing and upsetting and hijack attention from moment to moment, are invariably fleeting.

The Center for Yoga and Meditation of TNTEU has been functioning well by organising various Programmes related to Yoga and Meditation activities in collaboration with other institution and agencies at Government and Non-Government level by mobilization the resources each other mutually. The process of signing MoU’s at regional, national and international entities is underway. The committee is functioning in full-swing to monitor, review and organizing the programmes for the benefit of its stakeholder at large extent.
