Sometimes doctors also need therapy to destress themselves. In fact, considering high work pressure at major hospitals like the PGIMER, they are the ones who need it the most. To fight stress, the resident doctors of the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER) could now be seen practicing yoga and meditation. The sessions will be held at the PGI health club five days a week.

On-demand of the resident doctors, the Association of Resident Doctors ( ADR) has arranged trainers, who will teach yoga and meditation with soothing music in the background; dance classes have also been arranged. The classes will be held once a day and five days a week.

“We all know how busy the life of a doctor at the PGIMER is. We don’t have time to visit other centers for recreation activities, hence, on the demand of doctors, we have decided to provide these facilities at the hospital itself,” said Dr. Pulkit, president, ARD, PGIMER.

“Earlier, we did not have a place for recreational activities, but now, since a separate room has been allocated to us, we want to make full use of it. Two student bands will get a place to practice,” said Dr. Rakesh John, who deals with cultural events.
When asked about the yoga session, another resident doctor said, “Yoga has a great healing power… it is the best way to de-stress yourself, and we, the PGIMER doctors, need it the most.”

The yoga and meditation facility will be used by residents, research scholars and their families. The classes are expected to start in two week’s time.

“The doctors will also get to learn vocals, guitar, tabla, and dance. They can also learn freestyle, classical, hip-hop, salsa and other forms of dance, apart from yoga and meditation,” said a resident doctor.

Since all gyms are closed, gatherings for yoga classes etc may be a threat for infections in times when social distancing has been recommended. Instead, online voluntary services should be used https://www.facebook.com/Yoga-Scholars-Pgimer-100315241620099/?ref=bookmarks
