The aim of yoga is to encourage a positive and healthy lifestyle for physical, mental and emotional health of children. It helps in the development of strength, stamina, endurance and high energy at physical and mental levels. Yoga has been integrated as an essential component of Health and Physical Education.

NCERT has already developed textual material on Yoga for Upper Primary and Secondary stage titled “Yoga-A Healthy Way of Living” for Upper Primary and “Yoga-A Healthy Way of Living” for Secondary stage.

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) through the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) is taking the multi-dimensional initiative to promote Yoga in curriculum and transaction in schools.

MHRD through NCERT took an initiative to by conceptualizing „Yoga Olympiad as a venture with the objective to promote the awareness of yoga and to build up a network of yoga students, teachers and Yoga practitioners from schools to the national level and to spread the message of yoga as a science for holistic living. With this idea, this new initiative named as “Yoga Olympiad” was organized from 2016 onward as a prelude to the International Yoga Day which is on 21 June.

A detailed scheme was developed and has already been circulated to all the states/UTs and other National agencies. But due to coronavirus (COVID 19), all schools are closed since March 2020, though the children are being guided by their teachers at home not only for subject-specific online learning but also on yoga along with physical exercises based on the alternative calendars developed by NCERT which is being implemented at State/UT level.

These days, as there is much focus on the health and well-being of children, it is expected that they are not only getting awareness but also doing yogic practices at their homes. Therefore, in view of this, it is proposed to organize the online National Quiz Competition on Yoga.

Quiz Competition has been a very popular activity both within and outside educational institutions. It enables students and other participants to gather varied information on the selected theme or topic and understand the implications of different aspects of the concerned areas.

It provides opportunities to get exposed to various dimensions of that area and encourage them to acquire authentic knowledge about it.
