Can yoga change your life? If you ask most practicing yogis they will respond with a definitive “Yes.” Yoga has been practiced for several years and has been proven to cure lot of illnesses.
Practicing yoga gives us a greater sense of awareness of our body, mind and soul. Yoga takes us on the path of self-discovery.
Yoga should be practiced by people of all age groups, especially kids. Today children are running in a never ending rat race and so, they are constantly under pressure. Yoga helps relieve stress, instill confidence and focus better. A child who learns yoga, mindfulness and relaxation will be developing essential skills for a lifetime of health and wellness in mind, body and spirit. Children should be encouraged to take up yoga as it helps in the process of personality building.
Schools are the best place to inculcate this habit, as that's where kids spend most of their time. At NES International School, Mumbai, we understand the importance and benefits of yoga and have planned and established an exclusive centre for yoga and meditation.
The ultimate goal of yoga, however, is to help the individual to transcend the self and attain enlightenment. As the Bhagavad-Gita says, “A person is said to have achieved yoga, the union with the Self, when the perfectly disciplined mind gets freedom from all desires, and becomes absorbed in the Self alone.”
We were surprised when Suhani explained to us the respiratory and digestive systems.It was taught to her wonderfully at school using visual aids.
Thanks a lot!

The one page handwriting practice from the Newspaper is very helpful. Not only does it help my son improve his handwriting, but it also makes him aware of what is happening in the world. He chooses his favorite news each day and practices.

I would like to thank you and appreciate your hardwork, support and understanding towards my daughter. The inquiry fair held at the school was excellent. I found Geona to be very confident and smart when she was performing at the fair. Thank you for giving her this opportunity and showing faith in her.

My daughter taught her cousins and friends about articles, vowels and rhymes during her summer vacation. Even taught me the ascending and descending order using our family tree as an example. She also teaches our maid English conversation skills like 'How are you?', 'I am fine', etc.

When we were dealing with a unit on communication, Sanika inquired how plants and animals communicate. We were surprised as it was not included in the topic. This showed that she reflected being an enquirer.

My daughter has shown positive development thanks to the training and learning she is receiving at school. She is willing to help people, she even helps me and her father in our everyday activites. It is amazing to see how she is practically applying her learnings from school in her daily life. We are quite happy with her conduct and would like to sincerely thank her teachers and the entire management.
