“Yoga means addition - addition of energy, strength, and beauty to body, mind, and soul.” - Amit Ray

The Global Indian International School (GIIS) Ahmedabad added its own energy and spirit to the celebration of International Yoga Day 2022. The theme for the International Yoga Day celebration at GIIS Ahmedabad this year was- Yoga for Humanity. The parents, as well as students, enthusiastically joined the celebration. 

The parents and students donned white T-shirts or sportswear on the occasion of Yoga Day.  The event started with a yoga session with the parents, where they performed various asanas such as, Tadasan, Vrikshasan, Trikonasan, Garudasan, Ardh Chakrasan, Vajrasan, Padmasan, Shashankasan, Bhardrasan, Bhujangasan, Salabhasan and Makrasan under the guidance of the GIIS Sports team. 

After the yoga session with the parents, the GIIS Ahmedabad students  performed asanas creating a formation of the number 75 to represent the 75th Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav celebrations

A yoga session was organized for both the morning and evening shift students of GIIS Ahmedabad. The yoga session for the morning shift students was conducted by Ms. Dolly Gohel, an International Yoga Expert. The trainer for the afternoon yoga session was Mr. Jagdish Nagavadiya, who is a certified International Yoga Teacher and Fitness Expert. 

In keeping with the idea-Yoga for Peace and Harmony,  garlands of tribute were placed on Mahatma Gandhi’s statue by the Yoga trainers, Principal - Mr. Caesar D’silva, Vice Principal - Ms. Gayatri Moras, Head Mistress - Ms. Ruchika Dhingra, and the Co-ordinators.  Later, the Principal and Vice-Principal presented Tulsi saplings and mementos as a token of respect and love to the yoga gurus. 

The students of GIIS Ahmedabad fervently participated in the Yoga sessions wherein they performed several yoga poses. The trainers talked about the importance of Yoga in today’s world. The trainers also demonstrated some of their best yoga asanas, which were highly applauded by the students and teachers.

The tiny tots of Nursery and Kindergarten playfully performed various yoga asanas with the help of their teachers. They thoroughly enjoyed these asanas.

On this occasion of the International Yoga Day 2022, Principal Mr. Caesar D’silva motivated the students by saying, “Yoga is India’s gift to the world. Through Yoga, we have made the world healthier. Yoga is not just a physical exercise, but it enhances our mental stability as well. However, unfortunately, we as Indians have failed to recognize our own strengths. We would want our students to perform yoga asanas for half an hour every day at home and check the result!”

After the yoga session, Vice-Principal, Ms. Gayatri Moras thanked the yoga gurus and said in her address, “These gurus have attained flexibility through yoga and rigorous practice. It is important for every human being to perform yoga daily to make themselves fit, physically and mentally. All of us should try to make yoga a part of our routine, so that we aim for a better and fit India.”

The International Yoga Day Programme at GIIS Ahmedabad was well-executed with lots of energy and enthusiasm!
