International Yoga Day, 2023
Wednesday, 21st June 2023 was a gracious occasion for NPS International Chennai when the school celebrated the 9th International Day of Yoga.
On this special day, students were all dressed in White and started occupying the seats of the auditorium from 8.20 AM onwards. The event started with Principal Ms. Sudha Balan addressing the students, emphasizing the significance of Yoga in today’s world. The Yoga program was conducted by Mr. Guru Prasath J (Isha Hatha Yoga Teacher), who taught students simple forms of Yoga called “Upa -yoga” or useful Yoga to help them cope with modern life.
Students learned the practice of Directional movement of the arms, which helps in lubricating the joints and it also activates the energy nods in the joints. A simple form of pranayama named “Nadi Shuddhi” was taught to experience a sense of peace within them and in the end, all the students sat still for five minutes in “Shambhavi Mudra”.
The theme for the International Day of Yoga in 2023 is “Yoga for Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam” which signifies “the world is one family”. This was visible when all the students at NPS International Chennai practiced Yoga together in Union.
