Yoga Set To Play a Key Role in Resurgent India’s Growth Story…

CBSE, the premier educational body in India in K12 space, made Yoga education compulsory few years ago by making it an assessment criterion. This opened the doors for many schools to include Yoga Education in their school time-table. Later Samacheer Kalvi has made Yoga Education mandatory in all Tamilnadu schools – affiliated to various educational boards that fall under state administration. Several other states have also made Yoga mandatory in Schools.

Latest to join is Madhyapradesh. MP has gone a step ahead and is in the process of preparing a course curriculum apart from taking steps towards training enough trainers

After school education, Yoga as an educational tool is stepping into the higher education as well. Madras Medical College is taking steps in this direction

The day seems to be not far when Yoga education will be made mandatory not only in schools but also in all Higher Educational Institutions including IITs, IIMs and the likes. This is a welcome and much-needed change to make our burgeoning young population effectively contributing in Resurgent India’s Growth Story.

To make the story complete and journey smoother, urgent steps are needed to ensure that quality trainers are available, who can effectively teach Yoga to Children in a fun-filled environment. Recently The HINDU carried an article on some of the views of stakeholders in taking Yoga to Children
