Navy to promote yoga among naval personnel

The residential yoga training programme commenced in the Southern Naval Command on 01st March 2022 came to a successful end. The programme was launched to promote yoga exercises among naval personnel, who are into these practices, from each establishment in the Southern Naval Command and the initiative is being carried out on a successful note as of now.

This yoga training programme, carried out under the directives of Commander of the Navy, Vice Admiral Nishantha Ulugetenne and guidance of Commander Southern Naval Command, aims to improve strength, balance and flexibility of persons who engage in such exercises. The programme is willingly participated by a group of naval personnel from SLNS Ruhuna, SLNS Dakshina, SLNS Nipuna and SLNS Kawantissa in the Southern Naval Command. Instead of physical exercises, yoga exercises are done one day a week in the morning.

Meanwhile, initiatives of this nature will help improve physical and mental wellbeing of naval personnel further.
