Yoga is a way to connect with the higher Self and integrate all aspect of life so as to live in balance and harmony. It brings us closer to nature and helps us move towards oneness. This is the real promise of Yoga. The primary objective in yoga is the regulation of the restless mind. Everything good or evil originates from the mind and it is the mind alone that governs all our feelings, emotions and impulse. To achieve this we conducted a session on ‘Yoga and Meditation at Workplace’ by our guest speaker Dr Mohandas Hegde , Director of Centre for Research Education Sadhana and Training, Bangalore and a Heartfulness trainer from the last 25 years. Dr Hegde captivated the audience with his valuable and inspiring thoughts .There were more than thirty five staff members for this event. He explained the art of meditation and elaborated the meaning of spirituality and its related misconception ,He briefed how meditation plays an important role in a place like Mumbai, where a city never sleeps and were people are enthusiastic, full of energy but spend their entire life in a hectic schedule. We need to learn to discipline our mind through yoga and meditation which will empower us to achieve much more in all aspects of our life. The Director of School of Biomedical Sciences envisions to build a strong community were our staff can avail the benefits of meditation in everyday life hence listed in our agenda to set up a meditation and yoga centre at our MGM campus.
