Health Seminars at the Temple

Seminars on Health Care are held at the Temple every month from 2  to 3 pm. Next seminar is on Sunday October 15, 2017 and the topic is Myths about diet and life style changes


1.   What are the various myths about diet?  

2.   Basic information about diet.

3.   Basic information about physical activity.

Burden of chronic diseases (Cardiovascular disease, Cancer, Mental disease and lung diseases) has serious implication in our daily life. Most of these diseases can be prevented if we make an effort to understand as to cause of these problems. Is it the genes, or the aging process or the gender or the ethnicity which cause these problems?  Maybe it is related to mostly the way we live daily life (food, physical activity). This is the topic of our next  seminar.

Pranayam classes are held at the Temple from 10 am to 11:15 am every Sunday. Anyone interested is welcome to attend.
