ITANAGAR, June 20 - On the eve of the 6th International Day of Yoga, Arunachal Pradesh Governor Brig Dr BD Mishra (retd) today appealed to all the people to practise yoga and make it a part of their daily routine to stay fit.
Greeting the people of the State, the Governor said, �Yoga is a great boon for mankind. The varied yogic postures help reduce stress in the human body, and in turn, help relax and tone up the anatomical and physiological systems. Recent studies and the experiences of many yoga practitioners have shown, to the great hope and benefit of the people, that many chronic ailments are now being checked and cured by yogic practices.�
The Governor also said that being one of the best forms of a �happy life� regimen, yoga is �the best way� to live through the ongoing anti-coronavirus lockdown, quarantine and restricted movement period.
Citing that in 2014, at the initiative of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the United Nations had announced June 21 as the International Day of Yoga, the Governor said yogic practices have since been extensively patronised across the globe.
