An All-Round Balance Is The True Essence of Yoga – Dr Ishwar Basavaraddi


Pune: “The true essence of Yoga lies in achieving an all-round balance, while also serving as a bridge between one’s physical and mental health coordination,” asserted Dr Ishwar Basavaraddi; Former Director of Morarji Desai National Institute of Yoga and Chairman of Appaa Yoga Academy, New Delhi. He was speaking at the closing ceremony of the International Yoga Conference being held on behalf of Maharashtriya Mandal’s Chandrashekhar College of Physical Education.

This conference was organized as a part of Maharashtriya Mandal’s centenary year celebrations and was concluded at the Sakal Lalit Kalaghar, Mukundnagar. Dignitaries like Prof. Sanjeev Sonawane; Vice Chancellor of the Yashwantrao Chavan Maharashtra Open University, Air Marshal (Retd.) Bhushan Gokhale; President and Rohan Damle; General Secretary of the Maharashtriya Mandal, Dr Sopan Kangane; Chairman, Prof. Ujwala Raje, and Dr Pallavi Kavhane were also present on the occasion.

The central concept of this conference revolved around the theme of ‘Mat to Mind.’ It was supported by Yoga & Ayurveda Prabodhini, The Physical Education Foundation of India, the National Institute of Naturopathy, the Central Council for Research in Yoga & Naturopathy and Urban Rural Management Empowerment Establishment (URMEE). National-level experts, Yoga teachers, students, and researchers actively participated in this two-day conference. More than 500 enthusiasts from all over the country registered themselves for the conference. 18 paper presentations and 50 research papers, along with parallel workshops, seminars and lectures were also a significant part of this conference.

“With the substantial contribution of our Prime Minister, Yoga has gained global recognition in the last 10 years. Today, more than 27 crore people across the world practice Yoga on a daily basis. There are different types of Yoga, and there is a distinct diversity that can be observed in these types. Yoga has always been a crucial part of the Indian culture which has imparted its diverse techniques to us. In recent times, India has become the ‘World Guru’ only because of Yoga, and it is a matter of pride for us to see the world acknowledge our culture and Yoga,” expressed Dr Ishwar Basavaraddi.

The growth of Yoga happening all across the globe is increasing our responsibility as Indians, and its future is now in the hands of the youth. I believe that Indian tradition is carried forward when one person teaches Yoga to the other. But while doing this, it is important to improve oneself and add to one’s knowledge from time to time,” he further added.

“I believe that the way to control our breath and in turn ourselves, is Yoga. Therefore, it is something that needs to be experienced. In the New Education Policy (NEP) being implemented by the initiative of the Central Government, efforts are now being made to spread the subject of Yoga to a maximum number of students. The aim is to teach Yoga to 45 lakh students in the near future. With this, the need for trained experts in Yoga will also increase,” highlighted Dr Sanjeev Sonawane.

Before concluding the conference, Dr Ishwar Basavaraddi also guided the audience on the topic of ‘Mat to Mind.’

Air Marshal (Retd) Bhushan Gokhale introduced the program, while Rohan Damle threw light upon the concept of the conference. Prof. Ujwala Raje gave a summary of the two-day conference while Dr. Pallavi Kavhane presented the Vote of Thanks.
