Mysuru: The yoga exhibition held at the Dasara Exhibition Center opposite Mysuru Palace provided a glimpse of the growth and penetration of yoga across the world. The exhibition will end on Wednesday evening. The exhibition, however, registered low attendance on the first day.
Up to 146 stalls showcasing a range of rare native herbs in addition to Ayurvedic, unani, siddhahomeopathic and naturopathic products such as immunity boosters, medicines, churnas, herbal drinks by practitioners, startups and research institutes.
Leading research institutes like National Institute of Ayurveda, Unani, Siddha, Homeopathy, Naturopathy, Leh-based National Institute of Sowa-Rigpa System also set up their booths to popularize their medicine system as well as to educate visitors.
All India Institute of Medical Sciences also opened its booth to sensitize the masses on the benefits of the Indian system of medicine for people’s health and well-being with various case studies.
The exhibition of bamboo mats prepared by a startup, silk mats and meditation mats produced by Central Silk Board using leftover silk and other fabrics from recycling were some of the main attractions of the ‘exposure.
Central Silk Council Scientist Dr Nivedita told TOI that the council prepared such mats using waste fabrics and silk materials for yoga practitioners. As there are many health benefits, the Central Silk Board has popularized these mats among practitioners instead of synthetic and plastic mats. The Central Silk Board is ready to transfer technology for startups intending to manufacture such mats.
The National Institute of Mental Health and Neuroscience (Nimhans) also set up a booth to publicize its department of integrative medicine.
Scientist Dr. Umesh said Nimhans Department of Integrative Medicine two years ago set up a 30-bed unit in its hospital in Bangalore, where experts from Ayush department provide treatment and successfully cured several patients with the Indian system of medicine, tablets, yoga and meditation.
Speaking to TOI, President of the National Commission for Homeopathy Dr Anil Khurana said that the exhibition is organized by the Union Ministry of Ayush to create awareness about the benefits of the Indian system of medicine. “A digital signage device has also been put in place to raise awareness among the masses,” he said.
