Yoga as a Career

What is Yoga?

Yoga is one of the seven Ayush systems. It is essentially the art and science of healthy living which focuses on bringing harmony between the body and mind. The word Yoga is derived from the Sanskrit root ‘yuj’ meaning “to join”  or “to unite”. Another meaning of Yoga is “samadhi”, the higest state of consciousness or the state of absolute knowledge which leads to freedom. The aim of Yoga practice is to overcome all kinds of sufferings that lead to a sense of freedom in every walk of life with holistic health, harmony and happiness.

In the present era, Yoga is popular worldwide because of its spiritual values and therapeutic credentials. Also, its role in the prevention of diseases, promotion of health and management of lifestyle-related disorders are revered globally. The speciality of this system is that it can be practised with any other systems of health care.

As a career: 

Yoga has evolved as one of the promising and potential domains of career over the past few decades, especially with the tide of globalisation sweeping across the world. There is a great career scope for Yoga professionals not only in India but also in abroad like schools, colleges, universities, wellness and healthcare centres, corporate places, etc.

The awareness amongst people about the benefits of Yoga  for a healthy mind and body has increased the prospects of Yoga as a lucrative career. Further with the declaration of 21st June as International Yoga day by the UNO, the importance of Yoga as a career has increased many folds.
