Silicon University celebrates International Day of Yoga 2024

The Student Council at SiliconTech, the engineering institute of Silicon University, organized a yoga session to celebrate the International Day of Yoga (IDY) on 21 June 2024.

The International Day of Yoga (IDY) is celebrated every year on 21 June. The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) encourages technical institutes across India to undertake various yoga-related activities, to raise awareness and promote health and fitness. The theme of IDY 2024 was ‘Yoga for Self and Society’ which prioritizes the physical and mental well-being of the community.

The yoga and meditation session at Silicon was held in the Yoga Hall. Mr. Prasant Kumar Mallik, our yoga instructor, demonstrated various yoga postures, which were simultaneously performed by the participants. The participants performed several asanas, including Pawanmuktasana, Katichakrasana, Tadasana, Bhujangasana, Utthanapadasana, and Surya Namaskar. The session concluded with meditation and Shavasana, where all participants relaxed by lying down as part of the asana.

A total of twenty- five students, staff, and faculty members participated in the session to practice yoga and raise awareness about the benefits of staying fit.
