Abstract

General awareness about yoga and benefits of practice is quite high among urban areas. Any regular physical activity is known to be beneficial universally in many ways, yet many individuals do not engage in sufficient physical activity. Yoga practitioners and non-practitioners’ perception about yoga in terms of affect would be considered under two categories: concept and practice in a multi-cultural landscape of Mumbai which is taken as a backdrop for this study. Conceptually, yoga could be framed as religious, spiritual, cultural or human development activity. As per extant literature, as a practice, it is generally known to have perceived affects and beneficial effects as in physical health and fitness, improvement in energy level, feeling smart or agile , mental health (relief in stress, mood improvement, mental abilities and wellbeing, spiritual affects like mindfulness, social benefits like meeting new friends. This study is about probable relationship between these perceptions and non-practice of yoga. Motivations or lack of motivations could also be related to alternative activities considered more relevant or about how would they like yoga to be framed and designed so that it would be made acceptable to non-practitioners.
