Practical Demonstration : for students, teachers and non-teaching staff.

This Workshop was conducted under UNNAT MAHARASHTRA ABHIYAAN as an inititaive to bring about awareness of Holistic development through Yoga and the importance of Good Healthy practices as part of Fit India Initiative.

St. John Technical and Educational Campus believes that education does not mean mere imparting of knowledge or facts but it encompasses an all round development of an individual. The campus has been taking initiatives to accomplish this. The celebration of International Yoga Day as declared by United Nations was an exuberant event with the buoyant and enthusiastic participation of the large number of students. The heavy rains that lashed the city did not dampen the spirit of the students.

The in-campus Yoga experts Mr. Abhishek Singh and Mr. Lawrence Nadar organized a plethora of activities for students ranging from asanas, pranayam, breathing exercises to Suryanamaskar. The students stretched their arms, bent their legs, rolled their neck and twisted every sinew in their body with greater dexterity, in a spectacular synchronicity with English and Hindi instructions. Vrikshasana, Parvatasana, Padmasana, Vajrasana were the asanas, to name a few, performed on the occasion. The main attraction of the day was the performance of Suryanamaskar in which co ordination of body and mind is very important. The workshop had also arranged for a slide-show highlighting the importance of yoga in a student’s life.

Mr. Lawrence Nadar, the campus Sports-cum-Yoga coordinator shares, “Yoga nurtures the healthy mind in every child. The role of yoga while studying therefore, becomes significantly important.” His encouraging and motivating words to all were Yoga is not only for one – it’s for everyone, Yoga is not only for a day – it’s for everyday.”
