Speech on Impact of Yoga in Our Life

Regular practice of yoga is useful in maintaining good health. It is also important for good concentration and peace of mind. You are Shivam/Shabnam. Write a speech in 150-200 words to be delivered in the morning assembly of your school, highlighting the impact of yoga in our life.

Respected Principal, teachers and my dear friends, a very good morning to you all. I am here today to make you aware of the importance of Yoga in our daily life.

Yoga is a spiritual and ascetic discipline, developed by the saints of ancient India. They practiced yoga as an effective method of controlling their mind and bodily activities. Nowadays many lifestyle diseases are on the rise. Most of them are either physical, mental, emotional or psychological. People are always stressed and busy in their daily lives so they fail to relax and take care of themselves and their body. As a result, they suffer from one or more lifestyle diseases, such as diabetes, depression, even cancer, at the same time. Yoga in daily life is a system of practice consisting of eight levels of development in the areas of physical, mental, social and spiritual health. When the body is physically healthy, the mind is clear, focused and stress is under control. This allows one to connect with friends and loved ones and maintain socially healthy relationships. When one is healthy, one is in touch with one’s inner-self, with others and one’s surroundings at a much deeper level, which adds to one’s spiritual health. Yoga teaches to focus on breathing while you hold the poses. Even children can benefit from yoga.

I would like to conclude by saying that though yoga is a slow and steady process, its results, last for a long time. Besides working on body, mind and soul, regular practice of Yoga cures many ailments without any side effects.

Yoga has been used to help heal victims of torture or various forms of trauma. Since, yoga is a form of meditation, it results in a sense of inner peace and purpose, which has far-reaching health benefits.

Thank you

Good Morning everybody, I am Shivam/ Shabnam, a student of class XII of your school. It is a great opportunity for me to share my views on the topic ‘Impact of Yoga in our life’ in today’s assembly.

Yoga is not merely a physical exercise which includes stretching, breathing or twisting the body in different ways, but it results into a healthy development of mind, body and soul. Today’s sedentary lifestyle has invited many diseases where man has limited time to spare for his health. It is also important for good concentration and peace of mind. With regular practice of yoga, we tend to become more sensitive to the kind of food our body asks. With the genuine effort made by our honorable Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi, it is celebrated every year on 21st June. Not only Indians but the whole world has accepted the power of yoga. A few minutes of yoga helps to get relief from stress. It helps detox the body and de-stress the mind. Yoga is the best way to calm a disturbed mind and increase the level of well-being in a person. On the other hand, yoga postures massage organs and strengthen muscles; breathing techniques and meditation release stress and improve immune system. Yoga and meditation work on keeping the mind happy and peaceful. When we feel drained out of energy, a few minutes of yoga can provide the freshness and energy back to our body. It also helps in improving body postures. Today, students face many problems due to the burden of studies and feel depressed but yoga acts as the stress buster for them. In many schools yoga is practiced on the daily basis as a part of curriculum. Hence, we too should add yoga to our daily routines for a healthy life.

Thank you.
