An Advance Centre for Yoga Therapy and Research was inaugurated at the Government Medical College here today.
Minister for Health and Medical Education Bali Bhagat dedicated the centre to the public.
He called upon the people to make Yoga a part of their life, saying it has been acknowledged globally as best therapy for relieving stress and keep mind and body fit.
Bhagat said the newly opened centre will not only provide the infrastructure facility for practising Yoga but also prove useful in generating the research data which can be used to create health policies of the state in future.
“A similar centre will be setup at Srinagar to provide the people an opportunity to attend Yoga classes and take the benefit of this unique therapy,” he said.
