Health Awareness Programme
Outdoor Yoga Demonstrations and Shibirs for Students
The youth of this generation are facing unprecedented challenges. Right from the days of their education, they face stiff competition in creating their own identity. Never before has the society exerted such tremendous pressure on its youth. The result has been like a double edged sword. On the one hand, we say the bright side of today's youth which is highly competitive, very ambitious and extremely energetic.
On the other hand, they are subjected to unprecedented stress. The disturbingly high rates of substance abuse, depression and suicides among the youth are already taking their toll.
This is where a proven science like Yoga can be very helpful. The LHWC of Project 'Life' organizes short term Yoga demonstration and Yoga shibirs in schools, colleges and institutions for students to make them aware of Yoga and its advantages. Yoga helps youth develop a fit body and a firm mind. A body fit enough to face the demands of the new age, a mind firm enough toward of all evils including vices and societal evils. It develops their reflexes, improves their memory and strengthens their ability to concentrate. Yoga helps the youth turn into mature, responsible citizens. It helps the youth grow in a multi-dimensional manner and benefits them mentally and physically. Upon the successful completion of the programs, participating students are awarded certificates.
Outdoor Yoga Shibir
Often people feel more comfortable carrying out Yoga activities nearby their workplace because that is a familiar environment for them. Hence our LHWC conducts Yoga shibirs at various place including schools, colleges, campus areas, various offices, communities in Gujarat to spread real knowledge of Yoga.
Participants are given theoretical and practical training of this invaluable science. At the end of each Shibir, we collect feedback and distribute certificates to all the participants.
