KATHMANDU:Yoga is a culture, identity and philosophy. Although yoga, which is challenging the modern allopathic system, has already been globalized, Nepal is yet to fully adhere to its importance.
Yoga, which originated from Nepal, could not be developed due to the failure of making people aware about its significance. Experts related to this sector said that it was necessary to save its original form with the globalization of yoga.
Coordinator of Nepal Yoga Retreat Centre, Dr Chintamani Gautam, pointed out the need that the country should adopt usefulness of the modern yoga at a time when the importance of yoga medicine is increasing globally.
Gautam further said that it would help promote country’s economy along with physical and mental fitness if yoga is promoted linking with spiritual tourism.
Similarly, yoga expert Dr Taraman Amatya said that yoga would make people mature physically and mentally.
He added that a curriculum of yoga has been included in MBBS course at Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital, Maharajgunj, as it helps human body to achieve healthy and positive path. Modern yoga guru Maharshi Patanjali has been recognized as giving yoga a scientific shape.
The importance of Yoga has now increased with the recent announcement of United Nations for observing June 21 as Yoga Day across the world.
Dr Amatya said the Hot Yoga, Rajyoga, Tantara Yoga, and The Tripple Pat are the major four systems of Yoga and they have their own features.
