The purpose of yoga is to cultivate discernment, awareness, self-regulation and higher consciousness in the individual. It is a tool with many benefits, including reduced stress, increased relaxation and greater flexibility. Yoga education helps in self discipline and self-control, leading to immense amount of awareness, concentration and higher level of consciousness. Yoga education can enhance all the activities of the students, be it academic or sport or social. Yoga techniques provide improved attention in studies, better stamina and co-ordination for sports and a heightened awareness and balanced attitude for social activity.With this objective in mind the Yoga and Meditation Committee of Ram Lal Anand College organizes on regular basis yoga workshops, Meditation workshops, Yoga Competitions and celebrates International Yoga day with not just a formality but with Three day Workshop. We also organize events like essay writing competitions and Poster making competition to popularize yoga and to enhance its reach.
