Doctors are trained to take care of other people’s health. However not many of them are able to manage their own health as working as a doctor can at times be very stressful. The pressure and responsibility of the medical profession can be very hard to handle and hence many doctors pay very little attention to their well-being.

The Yoga Institute organized a camp for 2nd year medical students from Cooper Hospital to help them understand the role of yoga to cope up with the demand of their profession. Senior Yoga teacher Sashi Sarda conducted a two hour camp for the young doctors who walked in to the institute on 1st September 2016.

The session started with an introduction of the oldest organised Yoga Institute along with the importance of infusing yoga in to their lifestyle. Sukhasana, one of the simplest pose for meditation suited for all beginners, helped to bring all the young brains to concentrate on self. This was followed by a series of Asanas and concluded with a Shavasana, the Corpse Pose, as it is one of the best asana for relaxing the body, mind and breath. They were also introduced to Pranayama (practice of controlling the breath) and Trataka (an ancient meditation technique that improves one’s power of concentration and strengthens memory) to experience enhanced relaxation.

While many of the doctors did yoga for first time, they were quite happy and walked out of the premises in a peaceful state of mind. Most of the students shared that they had not experienced such a relaxed feeling. The Yoga Institute extends its best wishes to all the young doctors and hopes that they continue reaping the benefits of Yoga.

    This is an excellent initiative on the part of the Yoga Institute. I am reminded of my MBBS days when I had to study for over 12 hours at a stretch to prepare for my exams. I had little sleep. My diet consisted of whatever the mess provided and most of the time it was not nutritious and unhealthy food.
    I wish I had been introduced to Yoga, the way it is taught at the Yoga Institute, then. I would have certainly benefited much more than what I have now.
    I feel that the yoga institute should conduct sessions for such target groups such as medical students, engineering students, call centre employees and the like, so that more and more people may benefit from this age old tradition.
