Yoga is a 5,000-year-old physical, mental and spiritual practice having its origin in India, Which Aims to transform both body and mind. On December 11 in 2014, the United Nations General Assembly declared June 21st as the International Day of Yoga. The declaration came after the call for the adoption of June 21st as International Day of Yoga by Humble Indian Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi during his address to UN General Assembly on September 27, 2014 wherein he stated:
"Yoga is an invaluable gift of India's ancient tradition. It embodies unity of mind and body;
Thought and action; restraint and fulfilment; harmony between man and nature;
A holistic approach to health and well-being. It is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and the nature.
The word yoga means ‘union’ in Sanskrit. Here the union takes place between the mind, body and spirit.
We at GVV, celebrate International Yoga day every year on 21 June.
At GVV, regular yoga classes are scheduled for the benefit of children.
To ensure a sound physical and spiritual health, we have yoga sessions for children on a regular basis which also brings out the inner discipline amongst the students.
