This is a report on the webinar- Yoga & Dietary measures during COVID-19. It was held on 01st June, 2020, Monday from 08:00p.m onwards. This webinar is organized by EMPOWER PEOPLE and Tanuja Singh handled all the key speakers and interacted with them about the yoga and dietary. Letting go is the hardest asana.

The key speakers are as following -:

  • ·         Swati Kain (Hatha Yoga Trainer)
  • ·         Deepti Jain(Yoga Teacher)
  • ·         Kirti Chugh (Dietician/Nutritionist)

Yoga is a group of physical, mental, and spiritual practices or disciplines which originated in ancient India. Yoga is one of the six Ä€stika schools of Indian philosophical traditions. Diet can also refer to the food and drink a person consumes daily and the mental and physical circumstances connected to eating. Nutrition involves more than simply eating a “good” diet—it is about nourishment on every level. It involves relationships with family, friends, nature (the environment), our bodies, our community, and the world.

Eating the right kinds of foods, in the right amounts, is very crucial for our health. COVID-19 pandemic has changed a lot in the daily lives of people. During these difficult times, it has become essential to maintain a healthy lifestyle. While no foods or dietary supplements can prevent COVID-19 infection, but by maintaining a healthy diet we can keep our immune system strong for fighting the disease.

 Five yoga poses for immunity to help your body help itself when the cold and flu season hits hard:-

  • ·         Sitting and Breathing (Suk asana and Pranayama)
  • ·         Half Lord of the Fishes (Ardha Matsyendrasana)
  • ·         Supported Fish Pose (Matsyasana Variation)
  • ·         Forward Fold (Uttanasana)
  • ·         Legs Up the Wall (Viparita Karani)

Regular physical activity can strengthen your immune system and help your body fight off infections and viruses. Aim for at least 30 minutes of physical activity for three days a week. This can include walking, biking, yoga, swimming, or other low impact workouts.

Diets should maintained throughout the year with balancing of vitamins, nutrients and essential requirements. Yoga boost up immunity and makes us feel alive. COVID-19 s an infection which is new for everyone so doctors even says that whose immunity is strengthened they have a little chance of infection. As our immunity plays a vital role.

It’s just not beneficial for this period but for lifetime. In simple words every postures has their own value and which need to be acknowledged by each and every one. One of the key speaker told us that she had a neck and backbone pain and she did all the therapy but didn’t have any effect. So her doctor advised her that why don’t you try the yoga practices to get cure. So we see real life benefit from our speaker so why can’t we try this. It's not about being good at something. It's about being good to yourself.

 So in the crux we can say that yoga makes us the calm and more composed person. Diet makes us the healthy and boost our immunity in proper manner. The longest journey of any person is the journey inward. And we can go through this with yoga. The groundwork of all happiness is health. So we need to start giving the importance to this.
