Yoga Meditation of Holistic Health

From first graders to college seniors, students may have youth on their side, but that doesn't mean their lives are pressure-free. Hours a day sitting at desk or computer monitor and more hours doing homework cause a young body to tense up. Social and family pressures and, unfortunately, anxiety, abuse and bullying also take their toll. It's therefore not surprising that educators are becoming increasingly interested in providing yoga classes at school. Stress is a major obstacle to academic achievement, and yoga's stress relief powers have been shown to boost student performance. Yoga has been shown to improve memory in both adults and children, a benefit that would seem certain to improve academic performance.
To emphasis the importance of yoga "International Yoga Day" is observed and celebrated every year in our campus and various competitions are conducted and an oath is taken on that day. Under the UGC-Scheme of Career Oriented Courses, our institution conducts "Yoga Meditation of Holistic Health" course to our students. To make some awareness on yoga among the students, Yoga is included in one of the units of Part V syllabus. Besides, for the benefit of the girls students in the hostel premises, Yoga coaching is given by a Women Yoga trainer.
