The first Live session of the series on April 4 is by Luke Coutinho, who will speak on the topic of four pillars of immunity and family fitness.
Speaking about his session, Luke said: Immunity is an issue ignored over the years. It is the intelligence of your body. What I will teach people tomorrow is how to increase their immunity: the food they eat, exercise, sleep, and deal with emotions and stress.
Meditation coach Ronak Gajjar said that through these sessions, people will realize the importance of mental health.
No one is talking about how to take care of the mind, how to stay alone. When we do these live sessions on meditation and different types of sound healing therapy, people will realize how important it is to take care of their mind. My session will have a combination of pranayama and yoga theory and practice, he said.
Speaking of the importance of the initiative, Bhumika Uniyal, who will give a session on Vinyasa Yoga, says, "This is a brilliant initiative by the Government of india and is the need of the hour. I am honoured to be associated with the Fit India Movement, to connect and practice with people across the country via the live session."
