Bangalore: Greenwood High recently joined rest of the world and rolled out their yoga mats in celebrating the 3rd International Yoga Day with enthusiasm recently at its campus at Varthur Sarjapur & Bannerghutta road campus. Since this day was closer to Fathers Day, all the fathers were also invited along with their children to take part in celebrating both the occasions. More than 400 fathers joined the celebrations.
The main purpose of the event was to celebrate the occasion to ensure that we pass on the message of the importance of yoga not only to the kids but also to the maximum number of parents. The Yoga session were conducted by Art of Living team & Yoga Gurus from Akshar Yoga Team. The event also had lots of fun activities and games for father-child pair. The 3 best father and child pair performing the Asanas were also awarded from the school.
“This so far has been the best father’s day for me, said Guru Datta Dixit, a parent.
It’s a wonderful initiative taken by Greenwood High”, said a parent Prakruthi N Banwasi.
It was a unique experience!! Loved being part of it, said Chinmayi Sridhar, another parent.
“We have been following the practice of Yoga in our school curriculum from past few years and give it the same importance like any other subject. Yoga is an age-old tradition of India with tremendous health benefits. We wanted to leverage this day to take the benefits of yoga to all students again & salute the vastness of yoga. We also wish to thank all fathers in extending their full cooperation in making the celebrations a grand success”, said Ms. Niru Agarwal, Trustee, Greenwood High.
