The United Nations proclaimed 21 June as the International Day of Yoga. It is indeed a matter of pride to all Indians that the ancient wisdom of our country has been recognised by the international community. Yoga is part of the extracurricular activities in National Public School, Indiranagar as it is an Indian system. We believe that students should practise yoga since it releases stress and revives concentration and enthusiasm in their day to day life. It helps to support the education of the whole student, thus maximizing the learning process.
In National Public School, Indiranagar we have yoga classes as part of the regular weekly time-table for Class 1 to 5 students. We also have yoga workshops for the students of Class 6 to 10 to reinforce the skills learnt in the lower classes. These classes and workshops are conducted under the guidance of a trained yoga instructor, who is a member of the full-time faculty of the school.
As per the CBSE directive, given in CBSE/RO/ACAD/CIR/2015, all CBSE schools were 'called upon to organise activities and programmes to sensitise and organise activities and programmes to sensitise and encourage everyone to practise yoga for nurturing good health'. National Public School, Indiranagar conducted special classes for the students in June 2015, so that they understood that 'yoga provides a holistic approach to health and well being'.
