Mangaluru, Jun 21: 'Yoga is the Journey of the self, through the self, to the self'- Bhagavat Gita
Yoga rejuvenates our mind, body and soul. It refers to uniting or joining. To mark the importance, International Yoga Day is celebrated on June 21. This day has been observed since 2015. Ancient sage Patanjali is thought to be the Father of Modern Yoga.
The International Yoga Day was declared by United Nations General Assembly in its resolution on Dec 11, 2014.
This year has a unique theme to mark the beautiful day.
'Yoga at home and yoga with family', the focus of the theme is to stay motivated at home and adopt a healthy lifestyle by doing exercise and yoga.
St Agnes School enthusiastically began its academic year yet again by encouraging students to be fit and healthy. With the support of the physical instructors the students spent their valuable time with their families doing exercise, asanas and pranayama and extending their full support to mark this grand occasion. The department of education fully encouraged the physical instructors to make it a grand success. The students and their families enthusiastically took part in the activities and captured their best moments to symbolise unity and togetherness.
Exercise helps everyone to stay optimistic and yoga helps to explore new ideas to spend time and earn money without going outside. Thus, the venue of this yoga day is our own home. Let us appreciate the theme of International Yoga Day and continue to practice yoga at home regularly.
