Yoga session and practice for ELC teachers with Ms.Ramya, Yoga instructor at Ekadaksha, ChennaiAs teachers we need to be on our feet, fit and have a relaxed mind at all times. However, every teacher has to deal with life's various challenges and that sometimes creates aches and pains as well. Therefore, ELC invited Ms. Ramya, Yoga therapist to introduce and teach the basics of yoga to the teachers as well as provide them with case specific exercises. A few sessions were conducted in order to learn the right forms, postures and understand the importance of each stretch and exercise as well as which part of the body it would address. Breathing exercises were also done. After these sessions, teachers began practising yoga twice a week at the center. They would practice together and motivate each other. This practice can then be incorporated in their daily lives. Click here to view our teachers enjoying a yoga session.
