A Memorandum of Understanding between The National institute of Engineering (NIE) and Swami Vivekananda Yoga Anusandhana Samsthana(S-VYASA) for the purpose of Education, research and Clinical services related to Yoga, Ayurveda and Allied science was signed on Wednesday.
With an aim of creating holistic vision of Yoga by spreading importance of Yoga among the individuals and students in making healthier choices that foster good health and also to embed Yoga with the academics a MoU was signed between the Vice Chancellor of S-Vyasa Dr H R Nagendra and Principal and CEO of NIE Dr G L Shekar.
Addressing the gathering after signing the MoU Padmashree Awardee Dr H R Nagendra said, “Yoga has been the greatest contribution by India to the world. Yoga is not just an exercise or a physical activity but it’s a way of life that can bring harmony and peace in the whole world. In the present health scenario, the modern health care system has failed to address the issues of Non-communicable disease (NCD’s). Though modern health care system has successfully conducted nearly 5000 types of surgery all around the world, they have failed to move beyond the physical subjects. In this context India’s traditional practices including Yoga can be combined to address NCD’s and prevent them.”
“Today with the help of Central government and HRD Ministry Yoga has been brought to our education; it’s the sole responsibility of teachers who are the real caterers to create more awareness on this. This MoU between us will help in organising conferences, creating awareness on the Indian traditional practices among the students from technical background and in future it helps to set up Yoga centres, to introduce Yoga Instructive courses Science of emotion culture and lot more.” He added.
As part of the MoU Signing ceremony four students of NIE College demonstrated various Yoga Aasanas. Principal of NIE Dr G L Shekar, Secretary of NIE S K Lakshminarayana, B V Shankar, Subhadra Devi and others were present.
