Dr. Radha Rani GhoshAbstract:
Yoga is an ancient discipline designed to bring balance and health to the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual dimensions of the individual. Keeping in mind the health benefits of Yoga, it has been made part of the school curriculum under physical education and sports. It is also necessary to remember that sports and gymnastics belong to the scope of Physical Education. In our modern society the term Physical Education has been understood in different ways. In fact, the expression of Physical Education originally means “education through the body”. It is using the work with the body as a strategy to reach the noblest goals of education: autonomy and ethics in our relationships with each other and the environment. Both Yoga and Physical Education in their origin use the body as a tool for developing attitudes and abilities that are important to achieve physical and mental health.
