Yoga To Help Overcome Binge Watching Addiction

Yoga Therapeutics for Binge-Watching Addiction

Addicted to your screens, high-resolution definition TV’s, high-tech gadgets, Mobiles, Smartphones, Tabs and Tablets phew! List of screens are endless, and so are the reasons that the participants give to stay glued to their binge-watching addictions. The Yoga Institute, the oldest institute of its kind in the world, is about to start a course in March to combat binge watching.

The new era of tech gizmos has brought with it plethora of issues giving rise to various conditions of Binge Watching and in some instances giving rise to chronic conditions.

 “Without even realising, people are addicted to binge-watching. We are starting a de-addiction programme on this. Binge watching takes away several hours of the day and causes relationship issues. It also results in strained eyes, bad posture, spine problems, etc. Our research is on in a neuro-scientific manner, and we would be able to start a course by March,” said Shri Hrishi Yogendra, Assistant Director -The Yoga Institute (TYI).

The results were most encouraging, and Smt. Hansaji Yogendra who is the Director of the Institute is overseeing the project details. She said, “The other, more recently introduced forms of yoga focus mostly on the externals –body and stamina. However, we have the traditional wisdom and holistic approach, which covers physical, emotional, mental, interpersonal, and spiritual health. It is applied science. When a person is not happy, sickness creeps in. Traditional or ‘Ashtanga’ yoga (eight-fold path of yoga) is about living every moment, and not just the two hours of exercise people do.”

The research conducted at The Yoga Institute main campus Santacruz (East), Mumbai fetched encouraging results. The programme was first tested on the Institute volunteers and teachers who have shown signs of addiction. We have been working with behavioural scientists, psychiatrists, doctors and yoga experts who were part of the core research team. The course will last six months, including training, lectures and yoga asanas. The idea is to help people channelise their energy into something positive.
