International Yoga Day Celebrated in Schools by GSocial CSR team
International Day of Yoga is celebrated annually on 21st June since its inception in 2015. The idea of International Day of Yoga was first observed by our Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi during his speech at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), on 27th Sept 2014, said, “Yoga is an invaluable gift of India’s ancient tradition. It embodies the 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 nature. By changing our lifestyle and creating consciousness, it can help in well-being.” This was recalled by the CSR team during the Yoga Day celebration in different schools.
The team got chance to interact with students and tell them about how this day was incepted as International Yoga day at the United Nations General Assembly and support by other countries and why this day is observed on 21st June. The Theme of ‘Climate action’ for International Yoga Day 2019 was further elaborated. The students were told about how we all are connected with nature and how regular practice of yoga will surely help them achieve a better life: physically, mentally and spiritually.
The session of Asanas like Tadasana, Vrikshasana, Vyaghrasana, Balasana, Dhanurasana, Gomukhasana, etc. and Pranayama like Anuloma -Viloma Kriya, Bhramari, Sheetali-Shitkari was led by the team members and teachers in most of the schools. Students did it effortlessly. The CSR team encouraged students to keep practicing the Yoga consistently to get benefit out of it.
