Teerthanker Mahaveer University recently witnessed a two-day workshop on “Yoga for Technocrats & Anti Addiction Awareness”. It was organized by the Sports Club of the college. The workshop's primary goal was to educate and to provide a much needed awareness to the young minds about the dangers and the social implications that are brought about the drugs and usefulness of yoga for technocrats. The workshop was attended by first year students of various programs of the college.
The workshop was headed by Dr. Naveen Pandey (Yoga Expert) and Dr. Ritudhwaj Singh (Ayurvedacharaya) DSVV Haridwar Uttarakhand. The workshop started with lamp lighting ceremony and garlanding of Maa Sarawati. Prof. R.K. Dwevedi welcomes the guest. The Honorable Vice Chancellor Prof R.K. Mudgal was also present and shared his views on the title of the workshop.
In Yoga Session Prof. Pandey highlighted the benefits of yoga.
Overall Academic Improvement
Stress is a major obstacle to academic achievement, and yoga's stress relief powers have been shown to boost student performance.
Yoga has been shown to improve memory in adults and children, a benefit that would seem certain to improve academic performance.
Improved Attention span
Controlling attention is a challenge for children, partly because the brain's frontal lobes, which control the power of attention, mature later than some other functions. Yoga requires attention, which can be a challenge for younger yogis, but it has also been found to enhance the ability to control attention, even in hyperactive children.
Each school semester requires a high level of concentration, and your anxiety levels rise when you try to meet the expectations of deadlines and good grades. Practicing regular yoga reduces stress and promotes relaxation. The stretching of your body and the relaxing of your mind allows you to feel calmer in the middle of a hectic semester. Practicing yoga encourages a positive mental attitude and enforces stress management.
When you can't seem to get enough energy, engaging in yoga can fight fatigue and exhaustion. Higher energy levels replace your weariness. Yoga promotes cardio respiratory and musculoskeletal health, which improves your overall well being. The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, part of the National Institutes of Health, states that yoga works to reduce problems including insomnia, high blood pressure, high heart rate, headaches and general aches and pains.
Students have a unique posture: hunched shoulders with a rounded back and forward-poking head. These negative positions reduce your breathing capacity and increase your risk of chronic pain and injury. Yoga develops your body awareness and trains the muscles to properly align your skeleton. Proper alignment reduces the stress placed on your body and allows it to function with minimal energy output. Yoga poses are designed to awaken, strengthen and balance your body's connective tissues, thereby giving you proper posture.
He said from first graders to college seniors, students may have youth on their side — but that doesn't mean their lives are pressure-free. Hours a day sitting at desk or computer monitor and more hours doing homework cause a young body to tense up. Social and family pressures and, unfortunately, anxiety, abuse and bullying also take their toll. It's therefore not surprising that educators are becoming increasingly interested in providing yoga classes at school/college.
In Anti Addiction Session Prof. Singh said Addiction was once something that was applied to street drugs, alcohol and smoking. Today, addiction is seen more as a pattern of dependency that extends beyond substances.
Behavioral scientists are coming to the conclusion that anything that can stimulate somebody can become addictive. Many parents with children who spend all day playing on their mobile phones or games consoles will agree with that as they attempt to limit screen time. Gambling, shopping and even behaviors such as bullying and promiscuity are now seen as potentially addictive. So how do we protect our young people from becoming addicts?
Schools and other young people’s institutions can tackle this widespread problem with the help of Addiction Workshop. Understanding the causes and mechanisms of addiction is not always straightforward. Whereas substances such as street drugs, alcohol and even caffeine have a direct effect on the body’s neurotransmitter systems, non-substance addiction operates indirectly. Addiction is often defined as a state when a habit becomes a compulsion – something the addict “must do”. For example, young people who are addicted to computer games might fight with and deceive parents to far exceed healthy levels of stimulation leading to poor performance at school and even truancy.
At the end of the workshop guests were honored with a memento. Workshop was coordinated by Mr.Priyank Singhal & Mr. Navneet Vishnoi, Faculty CCSIT.
