Fighting fit in the autumn of life
The 60-plus senior citizens at Mickey Mehta's 'Be Stronger Live Longer' workshop as part of his 'Swast Mumbai Mast Mumbai' campaign with MiD DAY, were energetic and enthusiastic.
India’s leading holistic wellness guru promised to bring sunshine into their lives, and liberate them from medical suffering and that is what he proceeded to do at his Babulnath gym.
Encouraging the participants to constantly find meaning and purpose in what they did to add value to life and the environment, Mickey said, “Cellular regeneration can be constant, seamless and accomplished optimally by conscious lifestyle choices of activity for coordination, strength, stamina, agility, improved reflexes, responses and alertness.”
He spoke on the magic of wonder foods such has pomegranate, walnut, sesame, jowar, moong dal, bananas, pine nuts, almonds, carrots, beetroots, that gave vitality and vigour. He stressed on the importance of rest, of finding and reinventing oneself through meditation, and the importance of prayers of gratitude.
“Forgive yourself and forgive the world,” Mickey emphasized, “unburden yourself and liberate yourself to grow and evolve better.” Participant Jayant Shah said exuberantly, “I have never learnt Yoga the way Mickey taught us. It was simply wonderful and very soulful.”
