The morning assembly of Dr. Pillai Global Academy, New Panvel on Wednesday, 21st June, 2017 started with yoga in light of the 3rd International Yoga Day. The day started with warm up exercises followed by asanas, pranayama and meditation. All the students from grade 1 to 12, the principal, staff and sub staff; everyone was a part of the celebration of Yoga Day. It was a beautiful sight to see each and everyone synchronously moving from one yoga posture to other.
Later, on Friday, a special assembly was organized to commemorate this occasion. A presentation by students explained the basic yoga related terms and also enumerated the various benefits of yoga for school children.
We, at DPGA, New Panvel, completely understand that yogic exercises are extremely essential to keep ourselves physically fit and mentally healthy to say no to ailments. Hence there is already some time per week allotted for yoga for students.
