The raging pandemic shackled the world in its cage and, we were all taken by surprise; with everything closing on us, we all needed an escape. The masses turned to yoga as a means of being fit and calming their senses.

Offers a deep and fresh outlook on Life through Meditation
Life as we know it can become mundane with repetitive routines and a dying curiosity. The rewarding practice of yoga coupled with its slow-paced asanas lends a hand in acquainting the exterior self with the intricate interior.
Regular meditation allows the mind to get away from the constant hassle and entanglement of thoughts; it lets the mind concentrate on one thought and questions its material existence.
By reflecting on the varied thoughts, a mind blazes through not only brings the mind and body in the coalition but also extends the practitioners’ emotional quotient and wisdom on the trivial matters life puts forward.
