If we are strong then our family will be strong, our society will become stronger and ultimately our country will be strong. Children should teach yoga to their parents so that they can also lead a peaceful and stress-free life. Teachers and principals must also do yoga to live a tension-free life. Ms. Ray further said that if we all perform yoga, I am sure it will reduce tension in society. Now, the whole world is looking towards yoga. It is need of the hour that all teachers to principals, directorate to education officers everybody should practise yoga to lead a healthy and good life.
