Imphal: Sekmai Assembly constituency MLA Heisam Dingo Singh on Monday highlighted the importance of practicing yoga during the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) pandemic, as he addressed the event of International Yoga Day 2021 held at his residence, Khurkhul.
“Yoga has now become an essential part of our lifestyles…Not only does it keep our body healthy, but it enables us to get through psychological challenges, which is why every nation around the world has started practicing yoga,” said Dingo, also co-convener of the Joint Committee of Covid-19.
The MLA further said that our respiratory system is one of the most important parts of the body since it is connected with the whole body and supplies oxygen to every cell. With ‘Pranayama’ breathing exercise in yoga, we can increase our intake of oxygen…and by doing so it is particularly helpful for stress relief, he added.
Dingo also appealed to all people to make yoga a part of our daily life and expressed hope that with the support of the public, the present pandemic of Covid-19 can be controlled in Manipur.
President, BJP Sekmai Mandal and dozens of karyakartas present during the event.
