Yoga Camp for UP Bureaucrats to Relieve Stress and Inculcate Leadership Qualities

Senior bureaucrats of Uttar Pradesh will be attending a three-day camp for hands-on experience of the benefits of yoga from June 11, 2015. This yoga camp will be conducted at Indira Gandhi Pratisthan in the state capital Lucknow and will be presided over by 'Art of Living' founder Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. It will not only relieve the bureaucrats of work-related stress but also inculcate leadership qualities. Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav will also attend the camp on the last day.

The 'excellence in leadership' program would be conducted by international trainer Rajita Bagga. AoL office-bearers said, "Top bureaucrats of Uttar Pradeh will be taught the 'art of managing stress' through 'Sudarshan Kriya' and control of 'chanchal man' (wandering mind) through breathing control exercises."


An officer said, "The camp was planned after Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav evinced keen interest in assimilating yoga and 'Sudarshan Kriya' - involving various physical exercises and rhythmic breathing techniques - in the daily routine, especially for officials facing work pressure. During a meeting of the Art of Living founder with Yadav here in March, the spiritual leader told the chief minister about his initiative - Leadership Development - to inculcate leadership qualities through yoga. The chief minister responded positively and formed a committee comprising the chief secretary, principal secretary (appointments) and principal secretary (housing) to hold one such camp for bureaucrats."

Principal Secretary (Housing) Sadakant credited Chief Minister Yadav for the yoga event. He said, "It is due to his initiative that the event has been made possible."
