Two guest speakers from Rakuten Mr. Yoshito Naganuma(Executive officer of Rakuten Edy) and Ms. Yumi Minematsu (Company nurse Rakuten Inc.) shared their experiences of daily doing online morning yoga while working from home. According to them, even a beginner can continue yoga at his/her own pace and while doing yoga there is a sense of relaxation. After doing yoga in the morning, it gives a feeling of fresh start and inspiration of working from home the whole day there is no feeling of irritation but a composed feeling. There was a yoga demonstration which included a few upper body movements and pranayama followed by chanting the mantras. Yoga is not only limited to physical health but it also includes mental health and spirituality. Amid the Coronavirus pandemic yoga can help boost immunity and improve the overall health. P.S.
