“Yoga adds years to your life
And life to your years”
‘International yoga day’ was celebrated in our school premises amidst the pandemic situation to emphasize the importance of inculcating our ancient Indian art in our lives and to bring peace, harmony, happiness and success in the world.
The programme was initiated sharply at 6a.m with the lighting of the lamp by mann.Nivedita Didi, The Vice President of VRM & VK followed by prayer. A patriotic song was sung by our teachers to bring out the patriotic fervour amongst us.]
Yoga postures like Vajra asana, Trikona asana, Bhujanga asana etc… were performed by the staff of VRM & VK and our most respectable karyakarthas. We ended up our yoga performance by offering our salutations to Patanjali Rishi, the father of yoga. Sankalpam was taken by all the participants.
Mann.Nivedita Didi presented a clear cut picture of yoga and its importance in our daily lives. She remarked “Doing exercise is not only yoga but doing our work in a disciplinary way and leading a moral life is the real yoga”. She insisted us to have a regular practice of yoga to have a control over our body and mind and spread the fragrance of sweetness in the world. The programme ended with the Kendra prarthana. The programme was hosted by Selvi.Ajitha, teacher of VKV.
