A total of 99 personnel from Border Security Force (BSF) attended an intense 14-day Hatha Yoga Program at Isha Yoga Centre here.

They were trained in the ancient and powerful practices of Upa-Yoga, Angamardana and Surya Kriya, and were also initiated into ‘Aum’ chanting and Isha Kriya. Many of them have additionally been equipped as Isha Hatha Yoga trainers to train other BSF personnel in these powerful yogic practices.

Founder of Isha Foundation, Jaggi Vasudev had addressed senior BSF officials early this year on the need to offer yoga to those who were protecting the country, in his address expressed the hope that the “Seema Praharis,” as the BSF personnel are referred to, will make full use of these technologies of well-being and equip themselves to guard the frontiers of the nation.

Stewarded by the BSF Training Directorate, this initiative was aimed at gradually equipping the large force to be self-sustained in making the possibility of yoga available to each and every personnel, spread across the length and breadth of the nation.

This was the first of such programmes in the series, initiated with the objective of disseminating the ancient technologies of well-being within the BSF.

This contingent consisted of a Deputy Commandant, Assistant Commandants, Inspectors, sub-inspectors and constables, went through the regimen which included twice a day practice sessions and classroom sessions every day, from December 20 to this evening.
