From film actors to TV stars and industrialists, people across professions swear by the benefits of yoga. The ancient practice inculcates patience, relieves stress and help one become more mindful. These traits, in turn, help people make better business decisions and deal with business stress.
Many people in the Indian luxury industry are also ardent followers of yoga.
Mandira Lamba, 39, Former Chairperson of YFLO Delhi (Young FICCI Ladies Organisation) and Director of two art ventures, Blueprint 12 and Tribal Art Form, is one among them.
Wherever in the world, she may be, she starts her day with 10 to 12 minutes of Pranayamas that she learnt from a trained yoga instructor. Yoga, for her, is more challenging and beneficial than gym exercises. “To do yoga exercises correctly, one has to cultivate, both, physical and mental balance,” says Mandira. And that balance, she claims has also manifested in her professional life, helping her manage stress and her emotions. Her sleep cycle has also improved and she finds herself calmer.
