“Yoga is the artwork of awareness on the canvas of body, mind and soul. It is the journey of the self, to the self, through the self.”
DPSG International organized ‘Yog Bhagaye Rog’ on the occasion of International Yoga Day on 21 June, 2019.
Mrs. Deeksha Bhandari, DFO Ghaziabad graced the occasion as chief guest. Yoga guru Dr. Saroj Sirohi and wellness coach Dr. Chetan Kumar, were also present on the occasion. In her welcome address Principal Ms. Meera Mathur said that the event was organized as part of the school’s efforts to sensitize participants towards the benefits of yoga in achieving self-awareness, enhancing concentration and coping with day to day stress.
We at DPSG International believe that holistic health cannot be achieved without a clean and pollution free-environment, As a part of the school’s initiative to maintain an eco-friendly and zero garbage campus Ms. Bhandari planted a sapling and also inaugurated a compost pit.
A yoga session led by Dr. Saroj Sirohi and her team was held wherein participants were taught various asanas and kriyas to activate the right and left brain for better concentration and focus. The kriyas taught could be done at any time with the minimum effort but would have a tremendous effect on the students’ concentration if done regularly.
A session on active yoga was conducted by Dr. Chetan Kumar and his team in which he taught exercises and asanas that help in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. An open house quiz was organized towards the end of the event.
In keeping with the school’s initiative for physical fitness, a friendly cricket match between teachers and parents and a Zumba session for women was organized in the end which was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
