GUWAHATI, July 2 � In continuation of its efforts to promote yoga amongst its personnel, the 1st National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) organised a training session for its rescuers at Mirza today.
Around 546 rescuers of the force participated in the programme and practised various postures, asanas, kriyas, etc, under the guidance of yoga practitioner Dr RN Sharma, who has been actively involved in the field of yoga and health for more than 25 years.
During the hour-long programme, Dr Sharma also highlighted the essence of each posture.
Commenting on the programme, the Commandant of NDRF said, �The rescuers who directly experience or witness life-threatening dangers or physical harm, get exposed to gruesome death, loss of home and neighbourhood or community, etc, during or after disasters, are at the greatest risk for severe stress. Yoga is an antidote for stress and a powerful tool towards ensuring a healthy and balanced life.�
