Yoga helps strengthen children’s growing bodies and helps them improve their flexibility, which can reduce their chance of injury. Yoga teaches discipline and reduces impulsivity. Yoga can reduce challenging behaviors in the classroom by providing a physical outlet for children to express themselves.
An “International Yoga day” was celebrated on 21st June 2021 for the students from class V to class XII. It was heartening to see the students demonstrating various asanas such as Vrikasana, Adho Mukha Svanasana, Bhujangasa etc.
An online competition too was organised for them, wherein the students had to practice some asanas that were already demonstrated to them. They then had to capture these moments of their performance and make a collage of these pictures and upload the same in their respective classroom.
The response received was surely amazing !
It was truly proven that “ Yoga, indeed, is a skill in action” as rightly quoted in the Bhagvadgita!
