Children Yoga Festival is conducted every year to celebrate the true spirit of Yoga. Conceptualised by Sn Shiva Rishi, the founder of Satyananda Yoga Centre, Triplicane, this festival aims to popularise the practice of Yoga among the city’s school children. It is taken to schools by Ankur.
The six year old festival has taken several forms bringing something new in each form
In 2013 this festival:
- Took yoga in a concept based demo model and reached out to around a lakh of children
- Around 100 children got an opportunity to present their skills in a public venue in the presence of H E Governor of Tamilnadu, Dr K Rosaiah Ji
- About 51 children from eight schools of Chennai made it to an exciting 10-day educational trip to world’s first Yoga university – Bihar school of Yoga, Munger. They also got an opportunity to present their skills in front of an international audience on Children’s Yoga Day, 14th Feb 2014 at Munger, Bihar
In its new avatar, in 2015 CYF caters to both, students who study yoga as part of their school curriculum and to those who don’t. The festival will happen in three phases:
- School Level
- Zonal Level
- City Level
The students will be tested on a variety of parameters, like how they work in a group, their oratorical skills and obviously, their yoga skills as well.
Each step of this Festival offers a huge learning curve to all the students who participate.
The qualifiers of the festival, will get the unique opportunity to participate in a National Level Yoga convention, to be headed by Swami Niranjan.
Do not let your school and children lose out!
