Disseminating his expertise on the issue Prof Golam Sabbir Sattar, who conducted the yoga session, said regular yoga practice is very important for both physical and mental happiness coupled with generating self-confidence and courage in human beings.

Yoga can also bring joy and peace in body and mind and its practice is very much significant to keep the body disease-free and workable.

Regular yoga practice reduces many physical disorders like high blood pressure, lever problem, constipation, skin disease, obesity, arthritis, asthma, diabetes and migraine.

In his remarks, Assistant High Commissioner Monj Kumar said yoga practice is a complete exercise method for human beings. It acts as a bigger antibiotic to protect the body from various diseases. Many of the physicians are now seen saying about exercise for physical fitness.

According to the present medical science, only medicines cannot be the means of sound health.

He, however, put emphasis on enhancing the requisite facilities for yoga practice together with generating public awareness in this regard.
