JK business celebrates 6th International Yoga Day
New Delhi: Covid-19 has had a great toll on everyone’s lives, be it physiological or psychological. COVID-19 pandemic has created loneliness, disrupted normalcy, and has also led to heightened anxiety. It is difficult to predict what long term effects this pandemic has on our lives but it is safe to say that our lifestyles are changed for good. At the same time, our whole outlook towards health and well-being has also changed, and since going out and about for any physical exercise is currently the last option for a lot many, our ancient Indian practice of Yoga has seen a huge resurgence as a means to keep healthy.
JK Business School, while stressing on academic excellence, also recognizes the innumerable benefits of physical well-being, and therefore practicing Yoga, amongst other physical fitness initiatives under the JKBS FIT-BIT modules, is a regular practice on campus. We very well understand that being physically active is far more important during this time of the pandemic therefore while the whole pedagogy was shifted online well before Holi this year, JKBS also took its FIT-BIT sessions online. In previous years, JK Business School has been doing regular Yoga sessions in our 10-acre lush green campus under the guidance of our very own Yoga enthusiast Brig. (Dr.) Ajy Mehta, Registrar, JK Business School. However, this time JKBS hosted a virtual yoga session that was attended by the current students of JKBS, the Alumni, with the staff and Faculty on Sunday 21st June 2020 at 7:30 AM to mark the 6thInternational Yoga Day.
Prof (Dr) Sanjiv Marwah, Director, JK Business School adds, “At JK Business School, we care deeply about the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff. During this pandemic as well, we have left no stone unturned to keep everyone hale and hearty. During the course of the time that our students spend at JKBS, our focus is to expose them to as many concepts of personality development as possible. We just don’t create managers, We create individuals that add to society, and if a person is not at peace within oneself then he cannot be a positive influence on his surroundings as well. We believe that a healthy mind and body is the highway to a fulfilling life, therefore, Yoga has been kept as a regular addition to our on-campus activities. Our students are a testament to the many benefits this has brought to our lives.”
