After the success of the International Yoga Day event, the Panjab University has now decided to hold two yoga training sessions on the campus daily.

Earlier, only one yoga session was being organised in the morning. However, following demands from yoga participants, the authorities have now decided to hold the yoga session twice a day, PU vice-chancellor Arun Kumar Grover said on Friday.

Grover, while interacting with the yoga participants at PU Shooting Range in the morning, highlighted the benefits of yoga in modern day lifestyle.

The morning daily yoga training sessions will be organised from 6am to 7am at the PU Shooting Range and evening yoga training sessions will be organised at the PU Community Centre, Sector 25, from 6pm to 7pm.

A PU spokesman said the yoga sessions are being organised by the PU directorate of sports as an outreach programme of the university. The yoga sessions are open for students, teachers, alumni, and general public. Anyone can come and train oneself in yoga by attending any of the two sessions being organized in morning and evening, he added.
