India has traditionally been a society that has emphasized physical activity, exercise and many sports to promote mental and physical well-being and recreation. The age-old practice of yoga and pranayama indicate intricate knowledge about the body-mind relationship that has been developed by ancestors. Until now, this knowledge did not find a way into modern India, though it became a well-established science in the western developed world. Due to the increased sports participation, competitions and increased awareness about benefits of such participation, allied sports sciences like sports management, sports physiotherapy, and sports- exercise psychology etc. have begun developing in India.
The Distance Diploma in Sports and Exercise Psychology (DDSEP) provides aspirants an opportunity to understand and control the state of human mind in the sport field. This course is a good breakthrough for those involved in sports be it athletes, parents, coaches, gym trainers, fitness trainers etc. and for those wanting to become a sport and exercise psychologist.
