“I have been practising yoga regularly for 6 years now. It mostly started around the time when startup life had started getting very stressful. I feel International Yoga Day was the step in the right direction towards popularizing this form of exercise to stay healthy. What I like about Yoga is not just how it positively affects the physical self but also gives me great peace of mind. My usual practise is in the morning and I practice it regularly, from asanas to control my weight to breathing exercises. I also practice Surya Namaskar which has been very effective for me. Initially, it was tough to wake up in the mornings but after a few weeks, waking up in the morning at 6 am or before has become a habit without the alarm no, “says Vineet Rajan, co-founder, ScoutMyTrip.
