“Delhi govt kicks off the first session of the yoga classes that was facilitated for the corona positive patient’s in home isolation. This is a brilliant initiative undertaken by Delhi govt to keep the people engaged in physical activities while they are in isolation,” Jain said on Twitter.
There will be eight classes of one hour each from 6 am to 11 am and 4 pm to 7 pm under the the “Dilli ki Yogshala” programme.
