An avid practitioner of yoga, Dr Himanshu Rai believes in this all-encompassing philosophy as a way of life. He draws his understanding of the ancient science from Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras and the Bhagavad Gita.

Accordingly, a faithful interpretation of yoga must go beyond the physical postures it is conventionally associated with. It is about achieving not only a strong and supple body but also about attaining good mental health, emotional well-being, and fulfilling our responsibilities as a member of the society. A true follower of yoga would be physically healthy and agile, mentally alert, emotionally stable, socially responsible, would uphold lofty values and principles that make him an asset to the society – a confluence of all major aspects of this science such as hatha yoga, jnana yoga, raja yoga, bhakti yoga. This thought also made up the message he gave while inaugurating a two-day conference on ‘Role of Yoga in Overall Development - 2013’ at the Atal Bihari Vajpayee Government Arts and Commerce College, Indore.

Dr Himanshu Rai has also introduced his students to the main tenets of yoga through various on-campus workshops.

As a mark of his commitment to and belief in this ancient Indian science, he also supports Swastipath - a movement that seeks to bring about social change and inspire today’s youth with the help of Vedic learning, Yogic philosophy and scientific attitude towards solving problems, started by Swami Videh Yogi, his teacher, guide, and friend in matters of both Yoga and Ayurveda.
