Yoga teaches self-realisation, says Jasmin Bhasin


Actress Jasmin Bhasin says yoga teaches self-realisation. She also mentioned that it gives her awareness about her body and strengthens not just her body but her mind too.

Speaking on the occasion of International Day of Yoga, which is celebrated on June 21, she said, “I think yoga gives me awareness not just about my body from the outside but also about my internal organs. I feel it’s very important because it teaches you self-realisation of your body. And breathing into all the organs and body parts is also very important to keep it healthy. It draws your attention towards your body and its abilities so that you can strengthen your mind too and not just your body.”

The “Tashn-e-Ishq” star revealed that she practices yoga three days a week and also spoke about its benefits. She said, “I practice yoga atleast three days in a week and it has changed my life. I sleep better, I eat better, it has changed my whole outlook. Breathing techniques in yoga help me keep my mind cool and stable.”

“I think everyone must practice yoga, especially during this time of Covid-19 pandemic to decrease stress and anxiety. So it not only helps our physical health but also helps in maintaining a good mental health. Also, if you are suffering from some pain, it reduces it by releasing muscle tension. What more? It just improves the quality of life and you can actually feel the difference in yourself,” the “Naagin: Bhagya Ka Zehreela Khel” star added.

International Day of Yoga is celebrated every year on June 21. It was proposed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the United Nations General Assembly in 2014. After its adoption by the United Nations, the first International Yoga Day was celebrated on June 21, 2015.
