The Regional Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS), Imphal, has celebrated the 10th International Yoga Day at Jubilee Hall today. The event, themed “Yoga for Self and Society,” saw active participation from the faculties, staff, and students of RIMS.

Prof. Sharma emphasized the tremendous health benefits of yoga, noting its growing popularity worldwide.
In his speech, Prof. G. Sunilkumar Sharma discussed the numerous advantages of practicing yoga daily. He highlighted how yoga can be customized to suit individual needs and its significant role in reducing stress and promoting overall well-being. Despite the well-known benefits of yoga, Prof. G.
