Yoga science is for healthy living, a holistic approach to well being. Yoga has been practiced for decades by people in the East and was adopted by the United Nations in 2014.

 The Vice –Chancellor Prof. Mbithi joined other dignitaries to do Yoga exercises that included warm-up exercises, stretching, sun salutation, rhythmic control of breathing and meditation among others.

Speaking during the event, as one of the event partners, the Vice-Chancellor highlighted the importance of Yoga which include; healing of diseases, relaxation of the body, mind and soul.

According to Prof. Mbithi, a few minutes of Yoga meditation helps improve how people interact with their friends, clients and hence extending this practice to the entire country can bring a lot of positive change to the country. He urged the youth of this country to adopt the practice and spread it throughout the country.
