Mantra has always believed in a Mind & Body approach which means that we try to offer health and fitness solutions which benefits both the Mind and the Body simultaneously. These days our lives have grown much more hectic and stressful than they were even a decade earlier, the need for this kind of a dual approach is now more than ever specially when physio-somatic diseases like Diabetics and Hypertension are spreading like epidemic in India.
Yoga, the ancient Indian miracle is perfectly suitable for this because it in actuality does benefit mind and body both, at Mantra we offer separate classes for Hata Yoga, Pranayama and Meditation, which enables practitioners to learn this ancient skill of healing with moreefficient manner.
Hata Yoga classes at Mantra emphasise upon Mind & Body approach and works towards releasing the various stress induced knots in our mind and body through a set of different asanas.
With meticulous research we have designed various sets of asana for Hata Yoga classes aimed to release the dormant energy; the body becomes full of vitality and strength, the mind becomes light, creative, joyful and balanced.
Pranayama is the yogic practice that regulates prana (bioplasmic energy), possibly the most important function of the body. The correct way of regulated, controlled and conscious breathing can improve the body’s functions wonderfully.
At Mantra we offer a comprehensive Pranayama programme called “Breathing Mantra For Life”( BML) which induces conscious breathing pattern for our peace of mind in a disease free healthy body.

We fear losing a loved one, or losing our jobs or losing our health. In the changing scenario of corporatization of hospitals, selling of health package with the notion of “fear psychosis” becomes common practice and it is prevalent across all market segments.These phenomena of carefully created and marketed mass anxiety may also have a host of physiological and psychological side effects like sleeplessness, decreasing immunity and mood swings.
