'#YogaFor9to5' contest is being run by India's Women and Child Development Ministry for women to generate awareness about the benefits and life changing effects of Yoga.

As part of International Yoga Day, India's Ministry of Women and Child Development has launched #YogaFor9to5, a contest to spread awareness about Yoga at workplace for women.

The contest aims at imbibing Yoga in daily lives of women because it is considered to be a low-impact activity that can provide benefits such as increasing general health and stamina, reducing stress and improving conditions brought about by a sedentary lifestyle.

Yoga is a group of mental, physical and spiritual practices or disciplines which originated in ancient India. The word ‘yoga’ is derived from Sanskrit and means to join or to unite, symbolizing the union of body and consciousness. Today, it is practiced all over the world in various forms and continues to grow in popularity.

Ms Menka Gandhi, Minister, Women and Child Development, said that “The idea is to make people aware at large that effortless Yoga Aasans can help in transforming ones’s lives during the hectic working day. Also, Yoga at work helps keep the inner self calm and also aids in achieving the perfect balance between mind and body, to achieve maximum productivity at work.”

The ministry has invited entries portraying easy self-demonstration Yoga Aasans which can be practiced and helps practitioners feel calm during their working hours in the office. The deadline for submitting entries is June 21, 2018. Interested participants can submit their applications in the form of a self-demonstration video or multiple pictures and mail it to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

The participants will be judged on the basis of elements of originality, creativity, simplicity, composition, technical excellence, visual impact and artistic merit.
