Yoga Day Celebration at Witty International School Pawan Baug (2018-19).

Yoga Day

At Witty International School, Pawan Baug, we recognize the imperative of imparting an educational experience that is world-class in every respect and which prepares children for global citizenship. It has always been instrumental in holding various health programmes. Apart from all other sport activities, yoga has also been a part of the school curriculum.

Since its inception in the year 2015, June 21st is celebrated as The International Day of Yoga all over the world. This idea was proposed by our Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi. He said, “Yoga is an invaluable gift of India’s ancient tradition. It embodies unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfillment; harmony between man and nature; a holistic approach to health and well-being. It is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with you, the world and the nature. By changing our lifestyle and creating consciousness, it can help in well being.”

Renowned Yoga Gurus, Mrs Ravinder Kaur and Mrs Jasmeet Kaur from Yogazoo and Mr Vignesh Thakkar and team from Maharishi Patanjali Yog Mandal conducted the Yoga Day Programme in Witty International School, Pawan Baug wherein students had the opportunity to practice multiple styles of Yoga including Kundalini Yoga, Power Vinyasa Yoga, Iyengar Yoga and Kriya Yoga. The programme explored the eight limbs of Yoga and how they apply to our lives. In the present day when students face stress, tension, fear, etc, simple asanas can help dispel these.

The session included  prayer, meditation, games, c̣ālana kriyas ,various yogasanas like tādāsana, vruḳ- sasana, pada-hastasana, ardha cạkrasana, trikoṇasana , bhadrasana,  śasankasana, vakrasana and many more Many young and enthusiastic students bent and twisted their bodies in complex postures during the event. An insight into developing and enhancing a better life style was preached and practiced through the session which ended with a harmonious and peaceful meditation.

"It's equally important to serve the brain with spiritual knowledge and practices as one cannot apply the knowledge gained from education without the right sense of mind. There are meditation practices involved in yoga because of which both the conscious and subconscious segments of the brain can be benefitted. It's important to practice overall yoga exercises in order to get the full benefit from it," added Mrs Ravinder Kaur.

As quoted by our Principal Mr. Bijo Kurian “Yoga is a physicalmental, and spiritual practice or discipline which  has been speculated to date back to pre-Vedic Indian traditions, in India. As Yoga has techniques of controlling the body and the mind; it becomes a disciplined method for students to improve concentration for attainment of goal. Apart from the spiritual goals, such kind of sessions helps the students to alleviate health problems and reduce stress.”
