The district administration of Kota in association with Isha Foundation had organised a Yoga session for over 2,000 students and 1,000 teachers hailing from different private coaching institutes in Kota.
The move was initiated by the Kota district collector Ravi Kumar Surpur to evoke spirituality and Intellectuality amongst students and teachers to de- stress them due to the heavy pressure of studies and excelling in different subjects. This was also done to control the suicides by students who come here for coaching.
“ The event is an efforts to de-stress the students. Such sessions will bring creativity, insightfulness and compassion which eventually will curb negativity thinking from one’s self. The exercises taught to them will certainly bring positive energy and change among them,” said Surpur.
The yoga classes were held in two sessions — morning and afternoon. The first session was held at 6 am and the second one at 12.30 pm. Both the sessions were moderated by the Isha Foundation gurus. During the sessions, students were also given tips on how to keep themselves happy, peaceful, explore their inner selves and be joyful.
Several students who participated in the yoga sessions expressed their happiness and excitement. Earlier, Surpur had held ‘Masti Ki Pathshala’ in all the coaching institutes simultaneously by asking every coaching institute to organize fun-filled activities for their students.
The efforts on the part of Surpur has been well appreciated by all the residents of Kota.
