Aging is not merely the passage of time, but is the manifestation of biological events that occur over a span of time. In the world we are living in today, many peope who have managed to live past 100 years, often answer: “I eat right, I sleep well and I don’t worry.” All this can be achieved if we overcome stress.Stress can be overcome by practising YOGA/ PRANAYAM, which has been proven to relatively decrease metabolic rate at rest and eventually increases the longivity of each cell and thus the life span of an individual. Stress and anxiety have become a normal part of modern existence. There is a need for individuals to adopt a stress-free routine in their schedule. Yoga provides what is often described as a ‘spiritual connection’ and aids in relaxation of the mind and body, reducing and improving overall levels of stress.
