June, 2015: Tiger Shroff and Kriti Sanon along with Subhash Ghai celebrated International Yoga Day as part of the 5th Veda initiative on June 21 at Whistling Woods International (WWI). They performed various yoga asanas with the students, faculty and staff on campus.
The event started with the screening of various enlightening videos, demonstrating the techniques of yoga and its benefits, followed by a performance by a student of Whistling Woods. Adding to the cultural aspect of the event, a student of the Saroj Khan Dance Academy gave a breathtaking performance.
Speaking on the occasion, Tiger Shroff said, “I am not a regular practioner of yoga as I am more inclined towards gymnastics and martial arts. But this initiative by WWI has enlightened me and I am encouraged to include yoga in my daily regime.”
Kriti Sanon too shared her understanding of yoga and urged everyone to inculcate it in their daily lives. She also said she would become more regular in her practice of yoga.
Sharing the thought behind conducting this event, Subhash Ghai, Founder & Chairman, WWI said, “Yoga is internal bath for the body, mind and soul and every individual should practice it ardently. I’ve been practicing it myself for the past 25 years. Yoga in India is considered to be an around 3,500-year old mental, physical & spiritual practice. The youth of this country need to recognize the value of this amazing gift of our age-old culture, and how it can help them stay calm and achieve greater success in the modern world of cut-throat competition.”
As UN declared June 21 as International Day of Yoga, Whistling Woods International too joined hands with PM Modi and millions of other Indians who got together to celebrate this amazing facet of Indian culture, which not only helps you to stay fit but also helps to improve mental wellness and combat stress.
Concluding the event with a vote of thanks, Meghna Ghai Puri, President, WWI said, “At WWI, we have regular yoga classes on campus. Being a creative institute, yoga and meditation is an integral part of our educational philosophy.”
