Being Yoga: Advice From Top Yoga, Fitness & Ayurveda Experts

During these tough times, everyone is finding ways to cope. Cope with their mental and physical wellbeing. While the pandemic has sent everyone into a lockdown, Yogi Ira Trivedi came up with an idea of organising a Virtual Wellness Festival titled 'Being Yoga'. Partnering with FIT, the festival was held on the 2nd and 3rd of May on our Facebook pages and brought together some of the biggest names in wellness on one platform. The festival was supported by the Ministry of Culture.

On the success of the virtual wellness festival Ira says, "Our first virtual yoga festival went amazingly well and was a huge success. We were live streaming across platforms and had an amazing speakers who inspired all strata of society."

Talking about the highlights Ira added, "Some of the highlights were BK Shivani sharing what our day should look like to be mentally strong during Covid-19. There was Rahul Bose who gave a wonderful talk about how is he managing to stay fit despite having no access to any equipment, no access to any ground, and how he is using a 6 by 6 space to workout and stay healthy. Mahesh Bhupathi told us about how he is surviving, how he and his family, his wife Lara Dutta, and their daughter are keeping healthy, and how kids should stay engaged during the lockdown. We had Radhanath Swami who joined us from Chicago and he told us about lessons from Bhagwat Geeta to stay strong during this time and what I thought was particularly interesting is what he said about what Krishna would be saying right now if he was there on earth, about this pandemic and what the future would be. We ended with a beautiful Kirtan by Krishna Das who is a grammy-winning artist who joined us with some really amazing chants and Kirtans and we were really blessed to have him."

Ira adds, "All in all, it was a day of lot of motivation and we had some beautiful nutrition segments as well in the afternoon and the importance of fasting and how to keep your immunity up and alive during COVID-19. We inspired a lot of people including celebrities like Shilpa Shetty, to endorse our event, as she joined the event virtually.So we had close to a million people come across all our platforms and get inspire to donate and help improve their own mental, physical, and emotional well being."

Many renowned names from different industries joined the session, talking about the importance of Yoga.
