Yoga’ is one of the old disciplines which has been given to the world by India. The ultimate goal of yoga 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.
 
Keeping this in mind , the NCC Cadets of the school observed the third International Yoga Day on 21 June 2017 at Kamla Nehru College. The cadets followed this magnificent art of maintaining a healthy mind within a healthy body by performing various asanas.
