Shilpa who has been practicing yoga for over 14 years, on the occasion spoke about its benefits and encouraged citizens to take it up in a big way – Said Shilpa, “Yoga has become a way of life for me. It has made me more disciplined and has made me calm because when I am doing yoga I am also meditating and concentrating. I didn’t take up yoga to look good. I’ve never given a good figure too much importance.
Fitness was my target and one of the things that helped me achieve it is yoga.” Adding that, “People abroad have opened yoga studios and practice yoga religiously, but in India, there is apathy towards yoga. It is high time yoga is given importance because it originated in our country and we need to be proud of it. I think it’s a great opportunity for people to start practicing yoga and get some discipline in their lives.”
