Jalandhar June 20 (Jaswinder Singh Azad)- PCM S.D. College for Women, Jalandhar celebrated the International Yoga Day 2023 to foreground Yoga as the holistic approach to health and wellness. In 2014, the Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi suggested the United Nations to observe June 21 as the International Yoga Day as it is the longest day of the year in the summer solstice. Yoga is essentially a way of life aimed at a healthy mind in a healthy body. Man is a physical, mental and spiritual being and Yoga helps to promote balance development of all the three. A practitioner of Yoga feels rejuvenated and energized. Thus, Yoga empowers every human being to gain control over the body and mind.
To mark the occasion, the NSS Unit of PCM S.D College for Women took a pledge to practice yoga regularly in their lives and encourage their families and friends to adopt yoga for a healthy lifestyle in an event held in the college campus. Volunteers also participated in Jan Yoga Day programme at PAP campus, Jalandhar. They were also invited to register themselves as Yuvas on the Yuva Portal.
On this occasion, President Shri Naresh Kumar Budhia, Senior Vice President Shri Vinod Dada, other honourable members of the Management Committee and the worthy Principal Prof. (Dr. ) Pooja Parashar appreciated the NSS volunteers and program officers of NSS department for their whole-hearted participation in this event.
