Yoga in Navodaya Vidyalaya

A response on whether Yoga can be included in syllabus is expected from Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya and many other central govt. run schools.

This comes after the Supreme Court was addressing a plea seeking inclusion of yoga as a subject in school education in conformity with the National Curriculum Framework 2005.

The petitioners appealed that the central government had failed to make yoga as part of the formal school education despite the recommendation in the National Curriculum Framework 2005.

Study of yoga comprising of pranayam (science of breathing) and Asans (science of body postures) was suggested to be introduced in Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas.

The National Curriculum Framework 2005 recommended yoga to be introduced from the primary level (informal ways) and to be added in curriculum yogic exercises from class VI onwards, the petition added.
