PCER > Enrichment Program 2018-19 > Yoga Sessions 2018-19

Student teachers are given opportunity to practice yoga fortnightly in the multipurpose hall.

Objectives of conducting yoga sessions:

  • To provide a sense of calm that comes from the practice of yogic exercises
  • To develop the practice of breath control.
  • To develop resilience among the students

Plan of Action:
Student teachers were made aware of benefits of Yoga by fitness expert Mr. Sadhashiv. Yoga has a diverse range of things that it can offer. It could be said that a primary goal of yoga is to gain balance and control in one’s life. It also relieves one from confusion and distress. It helps to calm the nerves and helps in increase concentration.

It is indeed a healthy practice to experience and conduct the asanas in an efficient manner. Many of the students used to practice informally at home. But when they started practicing under the guidance of expert, they understood the intricacies of each asanas. It was as simple as when to breathe in and when to breathe, when to hold the breath for each step.

These helped in gaining confidence among the practitioners as well as better results after each session.
