Chief Minister Mr. Bhupesh Baghel practiced various yoga poses in the morning at his residence in Raipur on International Yoga Day today. On this occasion, he greeted the people of the state on Yoga Day and appealed them to include yoga in their daily routine.

The Chief Minister said in his message that yoga is one of the very ancient traditions of India.We also know it as Ashtanga Yoga. Yama, niyama, asana, pranayama, pratyahara, dharna, dhyana and samadhi are the eight parts of Ashtanga yoga. Asana is a combination of all these, but special emphasis is required on yama and niyama, only then the benefits of Ashtanga Yoga can be found in life. I want to request and urge everyone to make yoga a part of your life.Take some time out for yourself, in which you follow yama, niyama, asana and pranayama.
