When the breath wanders the mind also is unsteady. But when the breath is calmed the mind too will be still, and the yogi achieves long life. Therefore, one should learn to control the breath. (Hatha Yoga Pradipika)

Oakridge aims at the all round development of each and every child and it always strives to bring the best out them. At Oakridge, we believe that in a healthy mind lives in a healthy body. Our students practice yoga regularly at school which encourages them to systemize their routine activities.

A thorough practice has been done by the students for attaining perfection in performing asanas for the YOGA KAUSHAL PRADARSHAN. On 17th December 2011, students from grades I to V performed the Yoga art in front of the parents and mesmerized them with their talents.

The programme started with a prayer song and the lamp was lit by Mr. Ramesh Krishnan, Senior Vice President of People Combine, Mrs. Adilakshmi, Principal of OIS, Einstein Campus and Mr.Venkat Suresh, Vice Principal of OIS, Einstein Campus. The students performed different asanas like Dhanurasan, Parsvakonasan, Suryanamaskar, etc. for 40 minutes. Soon after the showcase, parents proceeded to yoga room and dance room to watch the display of various yoga poses of the students, posters made by the students on the benefits of yoga asanas and posters on famous yoga gurus.
