The event focused on the art of powering physical and mental well-being, especially relevant during the pandemic.

The session was organised over Google Meet from 7 am to 8 am, with people’s participation from all walks of life.

A total of 52 participants attended the session. Supriya Dutta, an ardent follower of Yoga, led the sessions which underlined the importance of practicing Yoga to help improve immunity.

The goodness of this ancient practice, which provides a holistic approach to wellness, is often underrated. At Columbia Asia Hospitals, we believe in the power of Yoga and its influence on the body and mind.”
