Yoga is an invaluable gift of India’s ancient tradition. It embodies unity of mind and body, restrains the vagaries of mind and brings one closer to bliss and one pointedness. Yoga is the Sanskrit word for union. Patanjali was a pioneer of classical yoga. He defined yoga as, “the cessation of the modification of the mind (Stopping restless mind)”.At New Horizon Gurukul International Day of Yoga is celebrated annually on 21st June since its inception in 2015.
This year too, celebrations took a creative turn by involving all students of Gurukul to participate in yoga session with live demonstrations by Yoga teachers. Live streaming on official school page of facebook and NHG’s official Youtube channel was followed by many students and teachers who actively participated in the event. Suryanamaskars and various other asanas were performed by all participants and many students created videos explaining the benefits of Sheersasan, Chakrasana to name a few. The cultural spirit of Shrest Bharat which is the Yog Bhumi in true sense did not let gurukulites lower their vigour due to COVID pandemic.
