Unfurling peace and tranquility on International Yoga Day Celebrations

APS GOLCONDA celebrated the glorious global event, International Day of Yoga on 21st of June using digital media platforms. To give a holistic approach to health and well-being, a special virtual staff meeting was convened by the Principal, Mrs Vidya Muralidharan to reach out the students through digital media in the wake of global pandemic. A few self-explanatory videos were forwarded by one of the yoga experts of the school highlighting the utility and significant aspects of practicing yoga in our daily life. The video blogging with the instructions and techniques given by the trainer steered enthusiasm and enlightened the students to understand the multiple facets of yoga to combat stress, stiffness, anxiety, obesity etc. Adhering to the year's theme 'Yoga at Home and Yoga with Family', the students along with their family enjoyed doing few asanas in the bright sunny day and uploaded their videos to their respective class teachers. From each category three best entries were selected and awarded with certificates. The practice with the family has not only provided a change from their daily routine but also enhanced their bonding to one another through this united activity. It will remain as one of the most cherishable memories in their life.
