Be Energetic Do Yoga

Yoga came long back from the Indus Valley Civilization around 3000 BCE. Yoga is there in Rigveda and also, there is reference in Upanishads. Yoga means mental, physical, spiritual and the disciplines which originally came from ancient India. The six Astika schools of Hindu philosophical traditions is Yoga.

In the west of India, yoga introduced in the late 19th and early 20th century by Swami Vivekananda, excluding asanas. We can see outside India that yoga is developed into a posture based physical fitness, relaxation technique and stress relief. Yoga is more than physical exercise; it has a meditative and spiritual core in the Indian traditions.

Yoga in the western world denotes it not only as an exercise but also through different body postures and asanas. Yoga relaxes the mind of the individual and also makes the youth strong to fight with their problems. As a most powerful exercise, everyone should do yoga daily for one hour in the morning and as well as in the evening.

International And Indian Scenario
At one time, the United Nations declared 21st June, 2015 as a International Yoga Day.

When the World Health Organization stated that 61% of the deaths are because of non-communicable diseases (NCD's), which consists of cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and chronic respiratory diseases, etc. and for all this only one exercise is better that is Yoga and because of it the country will suffer less and the people of the country will be more health and happy. Now, at the international level everyone is practicing yoga so that the coming youth become healthy from the body and mind and live a fit life ahead.

Many valuable contributions to the world are given by India and one among them is �YOGA�. From yoga we can learn and make a spiritual India. Yoga is connected with the culture and the heritage of India. Nowadays, yoga is spread by Swami Ramdev Baba of Patanjali Yoga Peeth Trust and his motto is that in each and every household of India, yoga is done on regular basis. Yoga has been seen as an integral part of Indian culture and the changes has been observed in the each period of history. Learn yoga in today's world has become an important achievement for the betterment of body and pure soul. Also, yoga has not a system of rich and poor, caste, religion, race, or gender discrimination, as it is equal for all the people living in the country.

Cases Of Yoga
The Supreme Court of India[1] asked the centre to decide that the yoga should be taught in schools from classes I TO VIII and make yoga as a compulsory study for all students across the schools of India. It is written in Article 21 that Right to Health is also important and for that the Public Interest Litigation was filed in Supreme Court Of India by the advocate to make yoga as a important study in schools but somehow the court rejects the public interest litigation and said that it is all depend upon the government what has to be taught in schools and what not we can't interfere in the matter and if we does so, the government will not follow as the power for education is given in the hands of government and only there rules are followed upon the schools.
And even court pointed that no judicial order can be passed by us to make any subject as a curriculum in any schools of India.

In one of the school of US[2], named as Encinitas Public School which was led by the superintendent T. Baird, received the permission from the Pattabhi Jois Foundation to teach the yoga in elementary schools. But when the parents came to know that yoga is been taught in school then they oppose and said not to teach yoga as it is a Indian activity and also it is of no use for our children. After this, the person who introduce the yoga in school said that it is a very powerful, relaxation and health activity for a person so let it be there. Due to many reasons came from the parents the school stop teaching yoga activity.

Yoga is the medicine for every small and upcoming problem in life. As you all practice yoga, it not only improves your physical body but also helps to maintain the inner peace and relaxes your mind. Moreover, yoga is not just a one day practice but it's a lifelong commitment. The more and more you are practicing yoga and the more benefits are coming to your way. If one is practicing yoga on the daily basis then he/she will enjoy a peaceful and healthy lifetime. Lastly, for further practice, one should be perfect both physically and mentally through the daily practice of yoga.
