Today, the whole world is celebrating International Yoga Day. We often see Bollywood and TV celebs doing yoga to get a toned and svelte hot-bod. Almost all TV stars practice Yoga and we spoke to a few of them about what it means to them. From Tinaa Duttaa and Jasmin Basin to Gaurav Gera and Sachin Parikh, TV actors spoke about the importance and benefits of Yoga.

Sachin Parikh:

Yes, I strongly believe yoga is one of the most important factors for keeping our body and mind in sync. Frankly, I am not practicing yoga regularly but whenever I get time, I do practice a couple of steps on and off. I seriously don't think yoga is a status symbol but if people think and tell just for the sake of telling that they are into yoga than I believe it’s not right. Yoga should be definitely be introduced as one of the subjects for students, if not from primary at least from secondary, when students start knowing why exactly they are doing yoga.

Shiny Doshi:

I feel there should be yoga taught in schools and colleges because, in the school which I have studied in Pune, we had one class every Friday where you could choose between yoga or dance and we also had a sports period. So, I feel Yoga is very important. I practice yoga, my mother is a yoga teacher so she teaches me yoga and she is the one who got me into yoga and workout. I believe yoga gives you a lot of mental peace. Everybody should practice it as it benefits you physically as well as mentally.

Aastha Chaudhary:

Yoga and meditation are the two important things which everyone should try because it not only keeps us healthy but also makes us emotionally and mentally strong. I think today yoga has started becoming a status symbol but there is nothing bad in it because if someone is practicing it then eventually it is giving health benefits. I used to practice yoga earlier but presently my schedules are very hectic so I am not able to do it. I am not a gym person so I prefer yoga and I have been doing yoga for many years. Yoga should be introduced in schools and colleges also as the students are under a lot of stress so yoga would keep them healthy. Yoga has many types of asanas which can control stress and make them healthy. Also, today's eating habits among kids is only about eating junk, so if they practice yoga then they would become healthier and mentally strong and it would be a good thing if it is made compulsory in schools and colleges.

I don’t do yoga but have been thinking about starting it. I definitely feel it should be in schools so as to make kids familiar with it. I wish it was at my school. Even if it’s being portrayed as a cool factor, it is only going to benefit one. It’s a multi-billion dollar industry internationally and we ignore it here even though it is ours. Anyway, it’s never too late to start yoga and I am going to start it soon.

Yoga is one of the best form of workouts as per me. You see results almost immediately and it helps in relaxing your mind and body alike. I practice yoga at least twice or thrice a week depending on my schedule. I discovered its benefits recently. In fact, it was my mom who inspired me to do yoga. I saw her doing headstands on her own which inspired me. I don’t know about whether people flaunt it as a status symbol or not but for me, it is an essential part now. Yes, yoga should be introduced in schools and colleges for students and they should discover its benefits as early as possible.

Kinshuk Vaidya:

My viewpoint about yoga is that I always felt yoga is not for me,  I am too young to do yoga, it’s for uncle and aunties and all those old age people. I thought I am young and I can do those exercises with heavy weights and all but as now recently I started reading about yoga and have started practicing the easy asanas. I realize it now that it’s not only for aged people but for younger guys also. It is so scientific and deep which I am realizing now. I feel everyone should experience it and not judge it before they try it. I am not saying it so that I can just claim it, it’s very deep and scientific. I feel yoga should be introduced in schools and colleges so that they don't have the misconceptions as I had.

Tinaa Dattaa:

The art of practicing yoga helps in controlling an individual’s mind, body and soul. It brings together physical and mental disciplines to achieve a peaceful body and mind. It also helps in increasing flexibility, muscle strength and body tone. It improves respiration, energy and vitality. Practicing yoga might seem like just stretching, but it can do much more for your body from the way you feel, look and move. I practice Yoga and I believe kids should explore to this form. Yoga is definitely not a status symbol, people who are healthy they know that Yoga is a useful way of staying healthy.

Jasmin Bhasin:

Yogic exercises recharge the body with cosmic energy. It also promotes self- healing. It removes negative blocks from the mind and toxins from the body. In my day to day life whenever I get time, I try to do yoga. And I feel Yoga is not a status symbol it is the necessity. Yoga should be introduced from school level, kids will get to know many useful aspects of yoga.

Gaurav Sharma:

I practice Yoga on alternate days as I am a regular gym goer. Yoga is good for your physical as well as mental health. It helps you to become flexible and keeps your core strong. In ancient times this used to be the most important exercise for those who wanted a healthy body. I strongly recommend Yoga to all the students too It should be a part of their physical training, not a status symbol.

Subuhi Joshi:

Yoga means to unite, and it does exactly what it means. It unites one’s body, soul and mind. It improves physical as well as a mental state. The kind of lifestyle we have today, it is very important to practice yoga to keep balance. Also, yoga is something which can be practiced by people of all age. I am dealing with a lot of physical and hormonal problems right now and I’ve been advised to not to do any kind of heavy workout and that’s why I try to do basic aasans like pranayam every morning. I’ve also had sinus since childhood, asans like anulom- vilom, bhramari have really helped me in controlling it. Yoga should be mandatory in every school and college, also it should be introduced in workplaces too.
