About Yoga

Yoga is a wonderful gift of ancient tradition. It brings the unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfillment; harmony between humans and nature, thus a holistic approach to health and well-being. It is not an exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with ourselves, the world and nature.

At IIT Ropar, we focus on the above aspects and we conduct not only the general classes but in our 2017 agenda we are focusing into the therapeutic approach towards the ailments as well.

The aim of this therapeutic approach is to overcome different kinds of ailments leading to a normal life with holistic health, happiness and harmony.
