Recently a series of Yoga lessons was organized at Sandipani Muni School after the morning programme. This was based on 8 types of Pranayama and Sukhshma Yoga. The classes were taken for five days. Raj Kumar Singh, the Yoga Acharya came to Vrindavan to present these lessons the the children. Raj Kumar works in conjunction with the famous Ayurveda Company from Haridwar named Patanjali, founded by Baba Ramdev.
The sessions lasted approximately 40 min each and dealt with an introduction to Yoga, the benefits of practicing it and how it helps to prevent and cure ailments such as asthma, tuberculosis, diabetes, low and high blood pressure and arthritis, let alone improving meditation and focusing of the mind.
The students not only received theoretical advice but also practiced various types of pranayamas (breathing exercises) and yoga exercises guided by Acharya Raj Kumar who directed the lessons from the school stage.
These kind of programs and school initiatives have been supported and encouraged by the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi who is a keen Yoga practitioner for many years. Seven classes of students ranging from the 6th to 12th Grade standard took part in the yoga sessions and participated with enthusiasm.
