In her inaugural address Ms Uma Prashanth said, “When Yoga is practiced with intention, it can help you relax your mind and body and give you the feeling of oneness. In addition to improving your physical strength, and flexibility, reducing your stress and enhance your mental focus, yoga can also help you get better sleep at night. Just like any other form of exercise, yoga can be an effective tool for weight loss also”
She further said, “We always have excuses saying that we don’t have time for exercise or Yoga. Just like our other planning/schedules we can spare 10 0r 15 minutes towards improving our lifestyle through yoga/exercises. I think this is a good initiative taken by Press Club for their journos. Even though you all are busy, but make some time for this yoga camp, if not you are not doing justice to your life,” .
Also speaking on the occasion, Darshan Jain said, “Our mission is to improve the Physical, Mental, Social and Spiritual health of Mangaloreans. It feels great to take up such initiatives which helps improve healthy lifestyle of the people, including the journalists who work hard day and night. I had also taken part in a health lifestyle programme organized for the prisoners. It feels great to be associated is such programmes for a social cause, and by involving myself in such social service activities, I have gained a lot of exposure and also given me courage to speak in front of a large gathering, which I lacked earlier. Even the drug awareness programme that was held in 2018, which brought changes in me, made myself to involve in many more social service activities, thereby rendering my service to the community”.
