Sri Venkateshwar International School, in keeping up with its motto of inculcating Shri through Values, Strength and Integrity; zealously took up the responsibility of organising wonderful virtual sessions for its staff, students and parents fraternity. This was preceded by two week long special Yoga sessions.
Classes PS-VIII practiced various asanas like Tadasana, Trikonasana, Mandukasana, Gomukhasana, etc. , understanding simultaneously their positive effects and precautions to be undertaken while performing them. They were guided by Ms Poonam – HoD Yoga, Kayna Dhingra of Class XI- President Yoga Club, Lavanya Hazare Vice President- Yoga Club of Class IX, Vani Joshi Activity Coordinator from the Batch of 2021, Head Wings- Ms Vineet Tomer, Ms Renuka and Ms Avneet, Ms Madhvi, Ms Nidhi Joshi and others, who worked hard to make the day memorable.
Classes IX-XII had the opportunity to share the platform with the experienced Senior faculty members from the Art of Living Foundation. Not only were the students and teachers taken through a strenuous and absolutely delightful session of ice breaker games, Surya namaskars and swift yogic asanas , but they were also given a taste of beautiful stillness within at the end of the rigorous practice session through yoga nidra.
