Yoga lessons in Goa schools: Ramdev
Yoga guru Baba Ramdev said tutors from his Patanjali Trust would soon be teaching yoga in Goa's government schools.
On the sidelines of a media briefing in Panaji Tuesday, Ramdev told IANS: "Our experts from the Patanjali (Yogpeeth) Trust will be soon teaching yoga at the government schools here."
He made the announcement after meeting Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, who is also the state education minister.
The yoga guru said that a proposal had already been submitted to the government and that he expected a favourable response.
Ramdev said that after meeting Parrikar, he got a sense that the chief minister was in the process of making yoga compulsory in schools.
"Yoga is our ancestral wisdom. It is the wisdom of our ancestors irrespective of whether they were Hindus, Muslims or Christians," Ramdev said, adding that the yoga curriculum would be secular with no religious trappings.
