Yoga for Old Age
The MSJE under its jurisdiction has a number of SCHs and IRCAs across the length and breadth of India. It has been a constant endeavor of the Ministry to provide assistance in various ways leading to improvement in the quality of life of the Senior Citizens and the Addicts undergoing rehabilitation. One of the services provided to these individuals is Yoga. It cannot be over-emphasized that the discipline of Yoga being inherently holistic goes a long way in rehabilitation, preservation and promotion of health. Regular practice of Yoga can contribute immensely to the well-being and quality of life of these individuals.

With its innumerable Member Institutions spread all over the country, IYA is in an advantageous position to fulfill the need of MSJE in providing Yoga training to the Senior Citizens and the Addicts as mentioned above.
