(Let’s Fight COVID-19 The Therapeutic Way)

There has never been more emphasis on immunity-building ever before as it is now. As we globally fight the COVID-19 pandemic, everyone is talking about immunity and how a strong immune system is a prerequisite of beating this deadly virus. Every county is in the middle of this global health scare that doesn’t seem to be going away any soon. And as the lockdowns ease across the globe, everyone’s looking forward to getting back to business/work. But before we talk about that, it’s more important to talk about the need to get stronger physically, mentally, and spiritually than ever before. Not just to fight this pandemic but to come out as a stronger and self-reliant individual when this Coronoavrius era is over. And that’s just what makes the upcoming International Yoga day so much more important this time around. 

Yoga and Its Importance in COVID-19
