HH. Swami Govinda Dev Giri

"Human life has many dimensions like physical, social, intellectual, emotional, cultural, domestic, national and more. Today, because of cut-throat competition, speedy life and endless desire for luxurious life, these dimensions have become complicated. And it is unavoidable too. Complications in life creates stress which gives birth to physical and psychological ailments. But, science of yoga propounded by Bharatiya Rishi's is one such solution which will help make our life smooth and free of ailments and pain. Yoga is not just physical or Pranic exercises, its an art to balance and bring harmony in all human activities. In real sense, our whole life is Yoga. Yoga is a skill to act without getting strssed and without violating individual and social harmony. Hence, the holy Bhagvad Gita which is ascience of life, is called as Yoga Shashtra."

Padhmbhushan Dr. Vijay Bhatkar

"It's time we look at ourselves holistically; otherwise we will have only partial or fragmented solutions to our problems. This is extremely important for our existence and specially for our health. Our ancient Rishi's looked at an embodiment in terms of five sheaths, namely AnnamayaKosha, PranamayaKosha, ManomayaKosha, VijnanamayaKosha and AnandamayaKosha. Hokistic health is defined as our wellness in all these fiveKoshas or sheaths. WHO also defines health as wellbeing of our body, mind, spirit and social awareness. Yoga is the only way of life which looks at our existence, our living and our health in thes integral and holistic manner. Thes international workshop is intended to unfolding this view through both its theory and actual practice in everyday life."
