Every year, on the 21st of June, the world celebrates International Yoga Day, a day dedicated to honouring the ancient practice of yoga, which originated in India over 5,000 years ago.

This celebration highlights the significant impact yoga has on the physical, mental, and spiritual well-being of millions of people globally. At Ruby Hall Clinic, we deeply recognise the profound benefits of incorporating yoga into daily life, advocating for its practice to promote a healthier, more balanced existence.

In today’s fast-paced world, maintaining physical health can be challenging. Yoga offers an accessible and effective way to enhance physical fitness, no matter one’s age or level of flexibility. Dr. Smita Ingle, Director (PT – OT Rehab) at Ruby Hall Clinic, “Regular practice of yoga significantly improves flexibility, strength, and posture. It is especially beneficial for managing chronic conditions such as arthritis, lower back pain, and for aiding post-surgical rehabilitation.”

Yoga’s comprehensive approach to exercise focuses on alignment and stretching, which helps to alleviate muscle tension and improve overall body mechanics. In sedentary modern lives, physical health can sometimes be neglected. Yoga offers a versatile solution to this problem, providing a comprehensive workout that promotes flexibility, strength, and endurance.

Enhancing Flexibility and Strength: Regular practice of yoga stretches the muscles and improves joint mobility. This flexibility is crucial for maintaining a full range of motion in the joints and preventing injuries. Moreover, many yoga poses, such as the plank, require you to support your body weight in novel ways, helping to build strength in muscles that might not be targeted in conventional exercises.

Improving Posture and Alignment: With prolonged sitting becoming the norm in modern work environments, poor posture is a common issue. Yoga encourages proper alignment and posture, which can help alleviate back, neck, and joint pain associated with prolonged sitting and improper body mechanics.

Boosting Respiratory and Cardiovascular Health: Breathing exercises (pranayama) are integral to yoga. These practices enhance lung capacity and improve respiratory efficiency. Additionally, the physical activity involved in yoga helps improve cardiovascular health, reducing the risk of heart disease.

The benefits of yoga extend beyond the physical. In a world where stress and anxiety are prevalent, yoga offers a sanctuary of calm. Through its emphasis on mindfulness and breath control, yoga provides powerful tools for managing stress and promoting mental clarity.

“Yoga is an invaluable tool for managing stress and anxiety. Its focus on mindfulness and breathing techniques helps individuals achieve a state of mental calm and emotional balance,” explains Dr. Madan Dang, Chief Operating Officer at Ruby Hall Clinic Wanowrie. “In our hospital, we have seen remarkable improvements in patients who integrate yoga into their treatment plans, with faster recovery times and a more positive outlook on their health.”

Incorporating yoga into daily life goes beyond practising a few postures each morning. It is about adopting a lifestyle that prioritises balance and well-being. Yoga encourages us to live mindfully, to be present in the moment, and to connect more deeply with our bodies and minds. For professionals, yoga offers practical techniques to manage stress and increase productivity. For students, it enhances focus and memory. For the elderly, it provides a gentle way to maintain mobility and independence. And for everyone, it fosters a sense of inner peace and resilience.

At Ruby Hall Clinic Wanowrie, we advocate for a holistic approach to health that combines traditional medical treatments with practices like yoga. This integrative approach not only addresses symptoms but also tackles the root causes of health issues, promoting long-term wellness. Dr. Vishal Kurane, Unit In-charge (Physiotherapy) at Ruby Hall Clinic Wanowrie highlights, “Our physiotherapy department incorporates yoga into rehabilitation programmes, providing tailored routines that cater to each patient’s specific needs. This approach not only speeds up recovery but also empowers patients to take an active role in their healing process.”
