“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 mechanism of breath.” –Excerpted from Hatha Yoga Pradipika.

“Give the world the best you have, and the best will come back to you.” The ancient wisdom as purveyed by this maxim urges us to be the benefactor and the beneficiary by generous give and take to the world around us. The sine-qua-non here is, one must be the best in one’s chosen field and share the bounties to receive yet more, from the universe. Earnest endeavour in this direction can be fulfilling and gratifying, forever. FIITJEE Global School shapes the young minds of its students for life, through the Six Philosophy Pillars of the School.

While, the first two pillars prima-facie, look the very objectives of schooling. The other pillars provide the much-needed knowledge of our noble cultural practices & ethics to gain vibrant mental and physical health. Keeping this expressly in mind, we must know that transcending to perpetuate one’s all round efforts into a great life of excitement and enjoyment, we must not be without joy, peace and celebration challenged. One cannot savor success and lead a rewarding life, sans the wherewithal for achieving these wonderful things. Here comes to our rescue, FIITJEE Global School’s pillars on Indian Culture & Value Systems and Yoga & Meditation.

We practice and preach the tenets of Yoga and Pranayama in our schools. These kriyas are taught by maestros and certified professionals. We want our children to be psycho-physically fit, such that they are ever sharp in their mind and body. Due care is taken to ensure age-appropriate yoga routines and special attention is given to safe practices that are child-friendly.

Meditation is the most important practice that is the fulcrum for excellence in every aspect of life. Our present-day world is afflicted by obsession with cut-throat competition, betrayal, emotional turmoil, pressure, depression and omnipresent poor health & chronic diseases. Yoga is the one-stop solution, nay, the elixir of life -for sustainability and happiness. Yoga helps overwhelm all the negativities and replace them with a host of good things like equanimity, forbearance, verve & vigour, perspicacity & profundity, prosperity & benevolence, to just name a few.

Health & sustainability are possible through yogic exercises, pranayama & meditation. All the physical, mental, emotional, intellectual and spiritual faculties come into perfect harmony through prolonged practice of such kriyas. Our saints, sages & seers have bestowed this profound tenet of life to humanity, as a free largesse to enjoy.

Students in our school are primed for performing the yogic practices that are appropriate for the respective age-groups. They are aware that the most beautiful moments in life are expression of joy and not the pursuit of joy!

The yoga postures taught by the experts in the field, bring in fabulous flexibility, build strong muscles, and catalyzes marvelous metabolism. The habit of pranayama ushers in strong regulation of oxygenated blood flow to all parts of the body, boosting the function of the lungs. Our meditation sessions, help in improving the attention span, memory, et al. These have immense impact on the academic performance of our children. When students enjoy the benefits of yoga, their self-esteem and confidence grows multifold. In that right frame of mind, they readily imbibe all the values of life and put them into regular practice. Serene mindfulness is gained by them to make them great team players and wonderful leaders. They get the courage to venture and innovate on untrodden areas for the betterment of the world at large. FIITJEE Global School children, blossom into fragrant flowers radiating life on mother earth and become global citizens in both letter and spirit!
