Yoga and Human Excellence
Yoga is essentially a spiritual discipline based on an extremely subtle Science which focuses on bringing harmony between mind and body. It is an art and science for healthy living. Yoga is well known for its postures and poses, but they were not a key part of original yoga traditions in India. Fitness was not a primary goal. Practitioners and followers of yogic tradition focused instead on other practices, such as expanding spiritual energy using breathing methods and mental focus. Yoga classes usually start and end with the “OM”. Chanting “OM” underlines the beginning and the end of the Yoga class. The vibration created by “OM” has an effect on the energies in the body and helps the mind to concentrate. Yoga classes begin with breathing exercises. The body is then gently put into movement, in particular with the Sun Salutations. You are now ready to practice Yoga postures that make the body stronger and more flexible in all directions (side inclinations, twists, forward and backward stretching, reverse poses). Yoga helps to reduce the stress level of students and increases the concentration power. Yoga reduces the blood pressure, anxiety etc. Yoga is given utmost importance as a part of the curriculum. Students are regularly practiced yoga as a part of curriculum.
