The International Yoga Day 2020 was observed by the students. A virtual meet was organised by the teacher incharge to conduct a yoga session and raise awareness about the many benefits of doing yoga. The idea of the International Yoga Day was first proposed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his speech at the UN General Assembly in 2014. Ever since 2015, June 21 is being celebrated as the International Day of Yoga, since it is the longest day of the year in the norther hemisphere.
The practice of yoga is believed to date back to the pre-vedic times, possibly to the Indus valley civilisation.
Yoga, which is essentially a group of physical, mental and spiritual practices, has many benefits. It can help reduce stress and anxiety by making you calm and also help with major health issues like obesity, diabetes and thyroid among others.
Our students were told about such significance and sensitised on how yoga can help maintain wellness both mentally and physically.
