The ancient Indian scripture have spoken in volume regarding the benefits of yoga. Our Vice President Shri M Venkaiah Naidu recommends that it should be a part of school curriculum, especially in the wake of changing lifestyles and non-communicable diseases. 

Addressing an event to mark the International Yoga day organized by Ministry of Ayush and Brahma Kumaris at Red Fort, he said that Yoga should be done not only to achieve physical well-being but also lead a better life and to combat the pressures of daily life. This ancient Indian science of physical, mental and spiritual practice needs to be a part of school curriculum.
