The below article from Harvard University is in line with what Master Sunita always emphasizes about her Sookshma program which has simple/subtle/quick exercises, body scanning, breathing and meditation. Sookshma program is designed and innovated by Master Sunita about 45 years ago for modern hectic lifestyles. She says that we all are very busy with our work, families, hobbies and other social responsibilities. A simple program to empower people to take care of their mind and body in 15 minutes has been her vision. Many of her students who have been through Sookshma program realize the innate potential that we all have and a few minutes in a day can help tap into that pure energy for peak performance in our day to day lives.
The Harvard University agrees with that and says:
“In the research conducted by Dr. James E. Stahl and his team of Harvard researchers, study volunteers participated in an 8-week mind-body relaxation program offered through the Benson-Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital. The program taught a range of mind-body skills.
Dr. Stahl, who is now at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, teaches his own patients mindfulness and meditation skills in his internal medicine practice and encourages people to practice daily. He says that you don’t need to enroll in a formal program, or even spend a lot of time practicing — 10 to 15 minutes a day will do. Consistency is the key.”
