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 yourself, the world and the nature. By changing our lifestyle and creating consciousness, it can help in well being.”

With reference to the CBSE Circular No. Acad-20/2017 dated 6/06/2017, the students of our school practiced meditation and yoga.

Ms. Deepa Gaur conducted a meditation session in the morning and helped students learn the positive impacts of meditation and understand the benefits of yoga. The logo for International Day for Yoga was explained which stated –

  • Folding of both hands in the logo Symbolize Yoga, the union, which reflects the union of individual consciousness with that of universal consciousness, a perfect harmony between mind & body, man & nature; a holistic approach to health & well being.
  • The brown leaves symbolize the Earth element, the green leaves symbolize the Nature, blue symbolizes the Water element, brightness symbolizes the Fire element and the Sun logo for International Day for Yoga symbolizes the source of energy and inspiration.
  • The logo reflects harmony and peace for humanity, which is the essence of Yoga.

The students performed yogic exercises and ‘pranayam’ to celebrate this day. Regular practice of yoga will surely help our students achieve a better life, physically, mentally and spiritually as well.
