Yoga is a way of living that aims to unify the limited self with the divine self. Yoga is derived from the Sanskrit word “yuj” which means to connect, join or balance. It is rightly mentioned in the Bhagavad Gita that “Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self.”
Over the last few decades, there has been an upsurge in the practice of yoga. The practice consists of certain postures (asanas), regulated breathing techniques (pranayamas), hand poses (mudras), and meditation. Medical professionals and famous personalities across the globe are also adopting and recommending the regular practice of yoga due its various health benefits.
International Yoga Day is celebrated on June 21st every year. It was internationally recognized by the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) on December 11, 2014. Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his UN Address had suggested the date of June 21, as it is the summer solstice; the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. The theme of this year will be ‘Yoga at Home and Yoga with Family’. In view of the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s International Yoga Day would be celebrated on digital media platforms and there will be no mass gatherings.
Krida Yoga is a program designed for tackling the causes and consequences of sedentary learning, weak emotional resilience, physical incapacities and health challenges in children between the age of 6-15 years. Krida Yoga is a well researched and planned program that combines the art of wellness, joy of recreation, and the potential of learning. Krida Yoga for children brings a mix of outdoor recreation and character building games, with a lot of physical buildup and energy infusion.
Keeping in mind the current global pandemic and the concept of social distancing, we will be conducting workshops, for children (age group 6-15) and adults, on various digital platforms, as a part of Krida Yoga.
