Yoga is essentially a spiritual discipline based on an extremely subtle science which focuses on bringing harmony between mind and body. The word “Yoga” is derived from the Sanskrit root  “ yaj ” meaning “ to join” or “ to write “  According to Yogic scriptures, the practice of yoga leads to the union of individual consciousness with universal consciousness. The science of Yoga has its origin thousands of years ago, long before the first religion on belief systems were born. According to Yogic lore, Lord Shiva  was the first “ Yogi” and the first “ adiguru”. Several years ago, on the banks of lake Kantisarovar in the Himalayas, adiyogi poured his profound knowledge into the legendary saptarishis who carried this powerful yogic science to different  parts of the world.

Patanjali systematised and codified the then  existing Yogic practices, its meaning and its related knowledge through patanjali’s Yoga sutras. Yoga works on the level of one’s body, mind, emotion and energy. To maintain peace in the mind, we are celebrating International  Yoga-day on 21st, June every year.

Nearly 300 students participated in Yoga day celebrations and performed Yoga on 21st June. Mr.JOGI SASTRY, retired Physical Education Teacher guided the children and suggested yoga tips to all the children to  maintain good and sound health.
