Germany's national football team to incorporate Yoga as part of training
World champion German national football team is reportedly incorporating yoga as a part of training in preparation for Euro 2016. Hindu community has welcomed this move.
It is expected that yoga will help the team in mental and physical relaxation and fitness, flexibility, concentration, performance, injury prevention, recovery after the game, stress management, etc.; reports suggest.

Commending the German national football team for coming forward and providing an opportunity to players to avail the multiple benefits of yoga, distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, urged all the sports/athletic teams of the world to incorporate highly beneficial yoga in the lives of their players/athletes.

Yoga, referred as "a living fossil", was a mental and physical discipline, for everybody to share and benefit from, whose traces went back to around 2,000 BCE to Indus Valley civilization, Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, pointed out.

Rajan Zed further said that yoga, although introduced and nourished by Hinduism, was a world heritage and liberation powerhouse to be utilized by all. According to Patanjali who codified it in Yoga Sutra, yoga was a methodical effort to attain perfection, through the control of the different elements of human nature, physical and psychical.

According to US National Institutes of Health, yoga may help one to feel more relaxed, be more flexible, improve posture, breathe deeply, and get rid of stress. According to a recently released study, yoga is strongly correlated with having a positive self image. Yoga is the repository of something basic in the human soul and psyche, Zed added.
