International Yoga Day is celebrated globally to ensure that a healthy body and mind are necessary for well being. At The Gaudium, we value this belief of looking at yoga as a necessity of attending to our mental and physical well-being. This is further represented in our mindfulness and well-being developmental pillars which forms the foundation of our philosophy, embedded deeply in The Gaudium Happy Minds’ Model.
The message of Yoga in promoting both the physical and mental well-being of humanity is very relevant in today’s uncertain and unpredictable world. At The Gaudium, International Yoga Day was celebrated on Monday, 21st June 2021 on the virtual platform involving all stakeholders.
Mindfulness sessions have been an integral part of our school routine and are practised regularly by all students along with their teachers. The International Yoga day was planned by the Physical Education department in collaboration with teachers and for the second consecutive year, was celebrated virtually.
All students along with their parents and teachers came together early in the morning on the 21st of June. The event started with sharing the significance and necessity of Yoga and how it is the most precious gift to the world. This was followed by a range of asanas demonstrated by the PE teachers. The Surya Namaskar, Pranayam, Stretching and Warm Up exercises were performed by all stakeholders.
The International Yoga Day thus reflected our commitment to bring all the stakeholders of The Gaudium together to practice Yoga and in turn promote the holistic health of every individual.
