LIFE SKILLS-YOGA AND MEDITATION

Daily Life is a system of practice of eight levels of development in the areas of physical, mental, social and spiritual health. When the body is physically healthy, the mind is clear, focused and stress is under control. This gives the space to connect with loved ones and maintain socially healthy relationships. When you are healthy you are in touch with your inner self, with others and your surroundings on a much deeper level, which adds to your spiritual health.

Yoga increases the flexibility of the spine, improve body’s physical condition and heightened awareness to the importance of relaxation. It has been emphasized that each exercise be practiced slowly, coordinating movement with the breath, pausing motionless in each position and always with full concentration.

The main goals of “Yoga in Daily life” are:

  • Physical Health
  • Mental Health
  • Social Health
  • Spiritual Health
  • Self-Realization or realization of the Divine within us

The goals are attained by

  • Love and health for all living beings
  • Respect for life protection of nature and the environment
  • A peaceful state of mind
  • Full vegetarian diet
  • Pure thoughts and positive life style

Physical Health

The health of the body is of fundamental importance in life. As the Swiss-born physician, Paracelsus, very correctly said, “Health isn’t everything, but without health everything is nothing”. To preserve and restore health there are physical exercise (Asanas), breath exercises (Pranayama) and relaxation techniques.

Mental health

In general, we are led through life by the mind and senses, rather than having these under our control. However, to gain control of the mind, we must first place it under inner analysis and purify it. Negative thoughts and fears create an imbalance in our nervous system and through this our physical function. This is the cause of many illnesses and sorrows. Clarity of thought, inner Freedom, contentment and a healthy self-confidence are the basis of mental wellbeing.

Social Health

Social health is the ability to be happy within oneself and to be able to make others happy. It means to nurture genuine contact and communication with other people, to assume responsibility within society and to work for the community. Social health is also the ability to relax and experience life in all its beauty.

SPORTS CLUB

Every dream needs to be driven by passion to make it come true. Sports Club is one such dream, formed by keeping sheer passion for the sports. It was conceived by a group of people headed by Mr. D. Sathyakumar. The philosophy of the Sports Club Program is to support the best elements of competition, instruction and recreation by providing the opportunity for all the students to participate and excel in team setting. The members of the club are exposed to various activities which are competitive in nature, with an emphasis on participation, skill development and student leadership.

Ten acres of open ground is allotted for promoting outdoor sports like cricket, football, volleyball, basketball, lawn tennis etc. and it has facilities for indoor games like badminton, table tennis, chess, caroms, etc.

Ultimately, Sport Club enhances the collegiate and educational experiences of their members. The competitive aspect of the Club allows their members to compete against other intercollegiate sports teams, while the instructional aspect of Club offers the members a chance to enhance their skills in a sports activities.

SCIENCE CLUB

The purpose of the Science Club is to promote interest, understanding and knowledge of the scientific world. The area of emphasis shall include chemistry, engineering, geology, mathematics, physics and much more.

The Science Club is started with the aim to invite many eminent scientists who would share their experience with the students and motivate them to gain scientific knowledge. Activities are designed primarily to introduce interesting/exciting science ideas, like motors, circuits, rockets, goofy putty, and squid. A secondary goal is to relate these ideas of science concepts in the classroom.

Science club creates an eagerness among students and gives practice to participate in the inter-collegiate science quiz contests, conferences and various science related competitions in order to bring out their hidden talents.

It also organizes events like science quiz, science related skits, paper presentation and lectures by experts on current and advanced topics on science.

INNOVATORS CLUB

This club is driven on the basis of – “Neither the technology nor the tools, it’s only an innovative idea that rules”.

The club enables the students to aware of their inner potential, cultivate creativity and initiative by proactive academic activities and research. It promotes enthusiasm among the students by participation of an information and scientific-based knowledge community. Preparing students to adapt the challenges of an ever changing world of tomorrow.

The central meaning of innovation relates to renewal or improvement, with novelty being a consequence of this improvement. It is quite necessary for people to change the way they make decisions or make choices outside their norms. On a lower level, innovation can be seen as a change in the thought process for doing something or useful application of inventions or discoveries. It may refer to incremental, emergent or radical and revolutionary changes in thinking, products, processes or organizations.

We provide all sorts of technical assistance and support service to students for developing new concepts, products and thereby ensure that innovation is a part of quality education.

Engineering education lacks practical orientation knowledge because of the absence of opportunities to develop new products during the course. If this can be solved in the campus, the transformation of a student into a professional will be explosive.

SKILL DEVELOPMENT CLUB

Developing communication skills within the team can be done easily by inculcating some basic manners, professional etiquette and keeping an open mind.

It is expected that every member of a team understands and shares relevant information related to a project. It is also important that they have a clear picture of their roles and responsibilities with respect to the project and deliver accordingly.
