Ankur CYF 2013 – Zonal Festival 1

The first zonal festival of Children Yoga Festival 2013 was successfully conducted on 9th Nov 2013 at DAV (Boys) Higher Secondary School, Mogappair. Special Thanks to the management of DAV Group of Schools for their support.

The festival was inaugurated by Mr Somanathan, Treasurer – Vivekananda Educational Society. His inaugural address was inspiring and encouraging to all the children. Mr Ramamurthy, Mr Srinivasan and Mr Jegathala Pratapan from VES graced the occasion.

Yoga Skill Demonstrations by all the participating schools in this level was quite impressive and far ahead in all respects when compared to respective performances at the School Level. Congrats! to all the children for the spectacular performance. Kudos to all the yoga teachers who have trained them.

The quiz program – part of Yoga Skill Demonstration, conducted by Mrs. Veda, Mrs. Padma and Mrs. Uma Jeyagopal was quite interesting and introduced children to some interesting facts about Bihar School of Yoga and its 50-year-old tradition. The visual and demonstration rounds made the program lively.

This was followed by Oratorical Skill Demonstration on various topics related to Yoga. The insights and confidence with which children demonstrated their oratory skills was highly commendable.

The festival also included an exposure to Satyananda Yoga style Kirtan singing by Sn. Shiva Rishi Ji – Founder Satyananda Yoga Education Charitable Trust. All the children and teachers thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Glad to share that one six-year child from the audience was so impressed by the experience, he chose to sing the same kirtan for a music program in his school.

Selected teams of Yoga Skill Demonstration and students from Oratorical Skill Demonstration shall be taken to a completely paid trip to Bihar School of Yoga, Munger. This trip will provide them an opportunity to demonstrate their skills in front of international experts. They will also undergo training from these experts, which will go a long way helping them to emerge as ambassadors of Yoga. These children will also be joined by students from other zonal festivals to be held shortly.
