International yoga day was celebrated across all the learning centers on 21st June, 2017. Yoga helps in connecting mind with our physical body and nature, thereby improving health and promoting harmony.
Yoga Day celebrated at Deepalaya Northwest Delhi
Introduction to yoga from an early stage in life helps in inculcating discipline and molding the behavior of students and into happy, healthy and intelligent adults later in life. In modern life the need of adopting effective and holistic means to maintain healthier life has increased many folds.
All the centers carried out and practiced ‘yogasans’ with the students either at parks or at centers itself, depending on the availability of space. Some of the students were really good at performing even the difficult ‘asans’ perfectly. The students participated very enthusiastically in the event and showed interest in regularly following the same.
