Manali Deo’s mantra of life – Live, Love Yoga

Yoga has been an intrinsic part of the Indian culture since thousands of years. However, very often, yoga’s benefits are only perceived to be at the body level and we fail to realize the immense benefits yoga offers in uniting the body and mind. Meet Manali Amod Deo (Gharpure), former Coach of India Women Team for Yoga and Co-founder of Pune based Mind and Body Yoga institute, who has organised numerous camps, seminars and training programs in last 15 years to grow awareness on Yoga. She has trained over 7000 yoga practitioners and has groomed over 80 students to become National level yoga players and 37 of them have competed in International Yoga Competitions and brought laurels for our country.

She has written books on yoga as well – Keep Fit (2012) and Yoga for Kiddos (2017). She also works as deputy treasurer of Pune Zilla Yog Sanstha. She believes that Yoga is a practical science of fitness for the modern man, woman & children. Office workers sit for hours at a stretch inviting back problems, homemakers need proper restoration from their duties, and children require physical regiments that are fun while disciplining the body for their growth. According to her, the practice of Yoga re-establishes connection between Body & Mind. It helps in connecting person’s conscious and intuitive mind. Live and Love Yoga should be our fitness Mantra.
