Witty World

Saturday, June 22, 2019


"Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self." -- The Bhagavad Gita ". Keeping this in mind, Witty International School celebrated International Day of Yoga on June 21st, 2019, in the school premises. This auspicious day was celebrated by the students and teachers with great enthusiasm.
Special yoga sessions of forty-five minutes each, across all the grades from VI to VIII were conducted, in which the objectives of World Yoga Day were discussed among the students.  
The yoga gurus, Mrs. Shital Bhatt and Mr. Liyakat Ali Lambe were called to do the honours. Mrs. Shital Bhatt, a yoga and fitness trainer is a NIS in yoga with an experience of 17 years in yoga and fitness industry. Along with her, we had Mr. Liyakat Ali Lambe who is a founder of Attivo Sports and Fitness, and Mr. Hitesh Amarseda who has been a great source of inspiration for students in the field of yoga.
 We also had the privilege of calling Maharshi Patanjali Yoga Mandal which has been formed with the objective of spreading our ‘ancient Sanskriti and values’ of yoga and Kriyayog propounded by Maharshi Patanjali.   
Mrs. Shital Bhatt mentioned, "Yoga is a tool that will help one do better in the education race as well because one has to understand that nobody can achieve anything without the support of a healthy heart, body and pure soul. It brings inner balance, sharper intellect and better focus. So, regular practice of yoga will surely help our students to achieve a better life; physically, mentally and spiritually."
During these sessions, all these gurus had one thing to demonstrate and that was how to inhale the future, and exhale the past, through various asanas to the students, which was then followed by Omkar chanting. Warm up exercises were taken up and all the students performed sitting and standing asanas. The importances of these were explained simultaneously. The celebration concluded with a synchronized recitation of shlokas .
As quoted by our Principal Mr. Bijo Kurian "Yoga is a physical, mental and spiritual practice or discipline which dates back to Pre-Vedic Indian traditions. As yoga has techniques of controlling the body and the mind, it becomes a disciplined method for students. Such sessions help the students to improve concentration, to alleviate health problems and reduce stress."
Hence it is rightly stated, "Yoga shows one the path to overcome Anguish, Fear, Loneliness and Illness and move towards the path of Happiness."
