International Yoga Day 2024: Indian Navy officials perform Yoga at INS VIkramaditya

The officials of the Indian Navy observed International Yoga Day on Friday and performed various asanas on the INS Vikramaditya. The year marks the decennial anniversary of International Yoga Day.

In its press release, the Indian Navy emphasised the importance of Yoga in the overall well-being of its personnel. The Indian Navy said that it has witnessed significant technological advancements in recent years, bolstering its capabilities and strategic reach. These advancements and subsequent capabilities have ensured the Indian Navy’s readiness to address emerging maritime challenges and assert its role as a blue water navy. Focusing on the core strength of the Indian Navy, i.e., high motivation, discipline and well-training, the Navy stated that its officials sail onboard ships and submarines at sea for extended durations in challenging conditions. This leads to physical and mental stress, which gets compounded due to the prolonged separation from their families during operational deployments. Additionally, there the personnel often lack luxury of open space for physical fitness activities. In such a condition Yoga, with its minimal space requirement, is easy to practice and offers mental and physical robustness. ​It added that yoga offers substantial benefits for the physical fitness of naval personnel along with mental stress reduction, enhancing their overall performance and readiness.
