What is Yoga? It means ‘union’. It is originally derived from the Sanskrit root “yuj” which means ‘to unite’. Yoga aims to unite a perfect harmony between body, breath, mind and soul. Yoga is not just bending your body and doing physical exercise but it brings you into a state where you experience the entire universe as a part of yourself – it is such an amazing feeling.
Yoga is a life-changing technique and the most well-known types of yoga are Hatha yoga and Raja Yoga. Hatha means ‘force’ which refers to a system of physical techniques whereas Raja yoga refers to the goal of yoga meaning ‘Samadhi’ which alludes to a state of meditative consciousness where the mind becomes still.
Meanwhile, a video showing yoga guru Ramdev falling off an elephant while doing yoga has spread like wildfire across social media platforms. The video was reportedly shot at an ashram in Mathura in Uttar Pradesh while yoga guru was teaching yoga to people.

Yoga guru Baba Ramdev earlier claimed that if anyone who can hold the breath for a minute, then it means the person is not suffering from coronavirus. “This is true both for symptomatic and asymptomatic cases,” Ramdev spoke special session at e-Agenda Aaj Tak.
“There is a special pranayama for coronavirus. It is called Ujjai. In it you contract your throat, then pump in air with a noise, hold it for a while and then gradually release it,” he said.
Demonstrating the exercise live, Baba Ramdev said, “Doing this is also a self-testing (for Covid-19).”
“Those who have chronic hypertension, heart problems, diabetes and the elderly, if they can hold their breath for 30 seconds, and those who are young for 1 minute, it means you do not have Covid-19, either symptomatic or asymptomatic,” Ramdev claimed.
Besides this, Ramdev had also claimed that if you put mustard oil through your nostril, the virus infection will flow into your stomach and die due to the acids present there.
“Iske saath agar aap sarson ka tel naak main daal dain toh pure respiratory tract main kahin bhi corona ho toh wo pet mail chala jayega aur wahan acid use maar denge. [Besides performing Ujjai, if you put mustard oil through your nostril, any coronavirus present in your respiratory tract will flow down to the stomach and get destroyed in the acids present there],” Ramdev said.
The Yoga guru also encouraged people to practise yoga at their home. “Reduced oxygen level in the body is the main cause of most disease. This has now also been proven by studies world over. Practice yoga and you will be able to enhance your body’s immunity, strengthen internal organs and protect yourself from the corona.”
