Celebrating International Day of Yoga at Narayana Schools


Amidst the tranquil surroundings of Narayana Schools, the air was filled with a sense of serenity and purpose as students gathered to celebrate the International Day of Yoga 2024. This occasion not only emphasised physical well-being but also underscored the importance of mental balance, better focus, concentration, and better grasping through the practice of yoga.

The event held in 30 Branches of Narayana schools was a tremendous success as yoga holds profound significance beyond its physical benefits. It nurtures discipline, enhanced concentration, and fosters a sense of inner peace. Students of all ages were seen on the school grounds, earnestly engaging in various yoga postures. One student, deeply focused on a simple asana, shared, “Yoga has been a part of my routine for several months now. It helps me stay flexible, calm, and focused amidst the challenges of school life.” The dedication and mindfulness reflected in their practice spoke volumes about the benefits of  yoga into daily life.

As some students performed Surya Namaskar, also known as the Sun Salutation, they experienced a complete workout that stretched and strengthened every muscle group in the body. One student elaborated, “Surya Namaskar is my favourite asana because it’s like a complete workout. It energises me and sets a positive tone for the day.” Through Surya Namaskar, students not only improve their physical health but also cultivate mental clarity and emotional balance.

Another student excitedly shared, “Our yoga instructor recently introduced us to Anulom Vilom or Nadi Shuddhi, a breathing exercise that has been incredibly beneficial. It helped us manage stress, improved our respiratory health, and sharpened our focus during studies.” This simple yet powerful technique underscores the complete approach to wellness that yoga embodies, promoting both physical vitality and mental resilience.

Reflecting on the significance of yoga in students‘ lives, one of Narayana Schools’ yoga instructors expressed, “As one of the 20 trained yoga instructors at Narayana Schools, I am immensely proud to witness our Narayanites embrace yoga with such enthusiasm and dedication. We believe that by practicing yoga regularly, our students will lead happier, healthier lives.”

Speaking on the International Day of Yoga, Ms. P. Sharani, Director, Narayana Educational Institutions explained, “Narayana’s yoga programme aims to instil lifelong habits of wellness and mindfulness in our students. With a full-fledged yoga program and instructors trained at the Isha Foundation, Narayana Schools provide in-house guidance, extra knowledge, and full support to students passionate about pursuing yoga in the future”.

At Narayana Schools, the celebration of the International Yoga Day was not merely an event but a testament to our commitment to overall development. By integrating yoga into the school curriculum, Narayana Schools empowers students to prioritise their well-being and cultivate a balanced approach to life. Through yoga, we want students to be physically and mentally fit, raring to achieve their dreams because at Narayana, your dreams are our dreams.

  1. Yoga with children can allow them to redirect energy positively, helping them calm their minds and bodies, especially during anxiety periods. It may be helpful for those who can be destructive and aggressive. Yoga may increase a child’s well-being, enhance self-worth, and promote fewer negative behaviours.
