If you do Yoga you will understand the meaning ‘who am I’. Sometimes we talk, move, and go somewhere else we read but we don’t know who I am. So yoga can help you in understanding yourself. Yoga will help you developing you body, mind and intellect. This is the essence of doing Yoga”, said Dr Saha.
