Pilani Lead School JMA Celebrates International Yoga Day

Derived from Sanskrit, the word Yoga means to join or to unite, symbolizing the union of body and consciousness and is an ancient physical, mental and spiritual practice that originated in India. The World Health Organization – WHO has appealed to all countries to help their citizens reduce physical inactivity, which is among the top ten leading causes of death worldwide, and a key risk factor for non-communicable diseases, such as cardiovascular diseases, cancer and diabetes.

Yoga practiced in various forms across the world is much more than a physical activity. In the words of one of its most famous practitioners, the late B. K. S. Iyengar, “Yoga cultivates the ways of maintaining a balanced attitude in day-to-day life and endows skill in the performance of one’s actions. Recognizing its universal appeal, on 11 December 2014, the United Nations – UN proclaimed 21 June as the International Day of Yoga by resolution 69/131.

The International Day of Yoga aims to raise awareness worldwide of the many benefits of practicing yoga. In the words of Prime Minister of India Sri Narendra Modi “Yoga is an invaluable gift from our ancient tradition. Yoga embodies unity of mind and body, thought and action ... a holistic approach [that] is valuable to our health and our well-being. Yoga is not just about exercise; it is a way to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and the nature.”

Popularly known as School with 100% results in Board Exams of Class 10 and 12, Jamuna Mishra Academy JMA is one of the most sought after schools in Pilani. It is a matter of great pride that alumni of JMA are presently pursuing higher education in various institutions which include NAAC A++ accredited Banasthali Vidyapith which in Times Higher Education 'THE' is Second Best Women's University in global rankings and the Institution of Eminence Birla Institute of Technology and Science - BITS Pilani.

JMA Pilani has established a rich tradition of observing various days of international as well as national importance on a regular basis. Due to COVID-19, with schools closed and summer break activities cancelled, parents find it indeed challenging to keep their children physically active. UNICEF says kids can practice many yoga poses without any risk and get the same benefits that adults do. These benefits include increased flexibility and fitness, mindfulness and relaxation.

With the theme as Yoga at Home and Yoga with Family, to mark the International Yoga Day, JMA Pilani Principal Mrs Booma Natarajan gave a clarion call to all students to do Surya Namaskar and practice various Yogasanas at home and send photos to the school. Parents appreciated the idea and ensured that their children did yoga practice at home, took photographs and sent them to school. Chairman JMA Dr Suman Mishra also greeted the students to mark the occasion.

Principal also advised the students to strictly follow the dos and don’ts for watching the deepest' annular solar eclipse of this century, with the Sun appearing as a necklace of pearls. Since 21 June 2020 coincides with Father’s Day and Fete de la Musique - World Music Day, Principal requested the students to sing the favorite song of their dads!!. What emerges is the fact that corona Virus can confine the student at home but cannot prevent the unlimited enthusiasm.
