The Brigade School @ Mahadevapura International Yoga Day Report 2021-22
This year The Brigade School @ Mahadevapura celebrated International Yoga Day on June 18, 2021. The theme for the celebration was “Yoga at Home and Yoga with Family”. This day is celebrated the world over on June 21st each year since 2015. The UN General Assembly in 2014 overwhelmingly adopted a draft resolution, declaring June 21 as International Yoga Day. A record 177 countries supported the resolution
The students started the Yoga Day session with the recitation of a powerful Sanskrit prayer Sahana Vavathu…Sahanau Bhunathu, that helped them focus their minds and bodies and prepared them to attain tranquility to perform the asanas.
The students participated in the performance of various asanas led by the yoga gurus of The Brigade School’s. Some of the asanas that the students performed were Vrikshasana, Ardha kati Chakrasana, Ardha Chakrasana, Padhasthasana, Kati Chakrasana and the Utkatasana.
Our yoga gurus Mr. Prathap Kumar, Ms. Bhavana and Ms. Monica then demonstrated advanced asanas like Utthita Hasta Padangushtasana, Ardha Baddha Padmottanasana, Halasana, Chakrasana to name a few. These asanas demonstrated to the students that by including yoga in our everyday lives we embrace a routine that would benefit us both physically and mentally.
The programme ended with a beautiful Sanskrit prayer that hoped for the wellness of everyone:
Om Sarve Bhavantu Sukhinah Sarve Santu Nir-Aamayaah | Sarve Bhadraanni Pashyantu Maa Kashcid-Duhkha-Bhaag-Bhavet | Om Shaantih |
May all become happy May none fall ill May all see auspiciousness everywhere May none ever feel sorrow Om Shaantih Shaantih Shaantih.
