International Yoga Day Celebrated by Secondary Section at WIS, Pawan Baug (2020-21)

Revive The Spirit !!!!

“One cannot always control what goes on outside, but one can control what goes on inside.”

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. 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. Yoga is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and the nature. By changing our lifestyle and creating consciousness, it can help in wellbeing.

 Witty International School took the initiative of organizing one such live Facebook Webinar on Yoga for the students of grades VI to IGCSE I on the 20th June. Ms Navmeet Kaur Ajmani, a well-known yoga trainer, associated with Pinkathon started the session with warm up exercises followed by the Omkar mantra.  Various asanas such as Garudasana, Chakrasana, Vrikshasana and Trikonasana were demonstrated and benefits of these asanas were explained. Lighter exercises related to the eyes, nose, jaws, shoulder blades and hips were also taught. The celebration concluded with synchronized recitation of shlokas.

 Principal Bijo Kurian encouraged students to practice the Asanas regularly to remain fit and improve concentration. He commented, “Yoga plays a significant role especially during the world crisis of Covid -19 as yoga boosts our immunity and is known to cure respiratory disorders.”

 Regular practice of yoga will surely help our students achieve a better life, physically, mentally and spiritually.
