K.R. Mangalam World School, G.K. II has always been in the forefront to ensure the best for the students. The foremost priority in this hour of crisis is to provide a holistic approach to health and well-being of our students, by keeping a healthy balance of mind and body. Yoga, being a catalyst to mental well-being embodies the unity of mind and body. It helps to instill confidence and to bring learning to children on an experiential level and teaches them to persevere, be patient, and work towards their goals. Yoga also provides tools for practicing compassion, mindfulness, generosity, focus, strength, and flexibility.
To stay strong and be strong to face the tough times it is even more important to build up our immunity, within the four walls of our house.
