Women Entrepreneurs: Yoga can empower you!


On International Yoga Day – June 21, Sheatwork focuses on the benefits of practicing yoga for women entrepreneurs

We know that entrepreneurship has a direct impact on the economy of a country. And, it is the result of many enterprising individuals – men and women, who decided to branch out and create footprints of their own. So, sheatwork focuses on women entrepreneurs on June 21 – International Yoga Day, highlighting the fact that to do ‘fit’ business, a woman entrepreneur has to ‘fit in mind and body’ too.

It is the fifth occasion when this day is celebrated. To mark the significance of yoga in one’s life, June 21 has been observed as International Day of Yoga every year, since 2015. It is also being celebrated at the United Nations with the theme – “Yoga with Gurus”.  

To decide to step out and become an entrepreneur requires a lot of initiative, hard work, patience, determination and more. It calls for a healthy body and mind. It is important to create that balance, which will actually take a long way.

It has been followed religiously by sadhus, athletes, people from all walks of life including celebrities and business heads. It brings about a rejuvenation that gives you an extra impetus – to live life to the fullest.
