"Our students receive an education in many streams and subjects and should also get trained in yoga.

We should get trained staff for such a course on yoga,” Akhtar said on the fifth International Yoga Day,

She added, “We will start Yoga classes in the university and students and others can join in the classes.”

The students along with the VC participated in the International Yoga Day celebrations on Friday. As a part of the celebrations, students performed asanas in the sports complex early in the day.

Akhtar said that it is good for students to start practicing Yoga at an early age to maintain good health and flexibility.

Celebrations were also seen across several other college campuses. Prime Minister Narendra Modi led the celebrations as he performed Yoga with 40,000 enthusiasts in the Prabhat Tara ground in Ranchi after urging everyone to practice the ancient Indian discipline.
