The presentation and demonstration was by Mr. Deepak Premanand Sangodkar, member of Ambika Yog Kutir and Professional Yoga Trainer, who teaches Yoga techniques and practices for promoting health and well-being – a service to humanity which he renders free of charge.

Keeping in mind this year’s IDY theme –yoga@home and yoga with family, the NSS volunteers of the College played a role in getting family members introduced to the world of Yoga and informing them of its long term benefits on health and well-being.
