ANC celebrates International Day for Yoga

Port Blair ,

  As part of the International Day For Yoga celebrations of the Andaman and Nicobar Command, a 75 Km 'Yoga Awareness Campaign Cycle Rally' was conducted by the Territorial Army (Island Terriers) on  June 20 from Port Blair (Birchgunj Military Station) to Ferrargunj and back to spread the message of physical and mental well-being through Yoga amongst the masses. 
  This was followed by Yoga sessions that were conducted at INHS Dhanvantari & NSRY here this morning. The yoga sessions at these locations were attended by all ranks, including senior officers and troops of Army, Navy and Air force. They were joined by ladies and children in large numbers.  
  Services of Patanjali certified Yoga experts were taken in order to derive maximum benefit from these events. The experts were assisted by trained armed forces personnel, many of whom had received training in a Yoga Capsule run by Civil Administration earlier. The enthusiastic response of the ladies and children in particular was the result of wide publicity given to the event in all fora and encouragement from all ranks to their families. 
  The Yoga sessions included talks by experts, discussion on health issues, demonstrations before practicing various asanas, and meditation therapy. Major General P S Sai, Chief of Staff and other senior officers of Headquarters Andaman and Nicobar Command attended the Yoga Sessions with all ranks.
