Music and Yoga Day 2024

On 21st June, 2024 NPS Koramangala curated a musical-dance program in the school auditorium as an ode to Music and Yoga Day. This event beautifully amalgamated music, dance, and storytelling, offering a profound exploration of artistic expression and spiritual resonance, honouring two timeless practices- yoga and music that have the power to unite, inspire, and heal. The event commenced with a soul-soothing shloka performed by the choir. Their serene vocals and melodic instrumentation created a tranquil atmosphere, inviting attendees to reflect and connect on a deeper spiritual level. Following the prayer song, three talented students took centre stage. Their harmonious voices resonated with youthful energy as they delivered a heartfelt rendition of ‘The Prayer’ by Celine Dion- a call for peace, guidance and kindness, hope and resilience- inspiring the audience with the emotive delivery.

A mesmerizing musical extravaganza was showcased accompanied by expressive dance performances. Led by the Gr.7 -12 students, the ensemble exhibited a blend of traditional and modern compositions. The synergy between live music and dynamic choreography captivated the audience, evoking a spectrum of emotions from exhilaration to introspection. What followed suit was a soulful performance of the iconic Beatles song “We Are Champions!” that infused the gathering with the warmth of unity and cultural diversity. The lively rhythm and infectious lyrics uplifted spirits and set a joyous tone for the remainder of the event. This paved the way for a unique yoga performance by students across Gr.1-12, intertwined with a unique storytelling of how Yoga became an integral part of the pre-Vedic period and how the Saptarishis propagated this ancient practice of spiritual discipline to bring harmony between the mind and body. The participants embarked on a journey of physical and mental rejuvenation through a series of yoga poses and narrated tales, illustrating themes of mindfulness and interconnectedness, leaving a lasting impression on all. The program ended with a vote of thanks and a brief meditation session to reflect on our achievements, find inner calm, and anchor ourselves in the power of the moment.

The celebration today was a testament to the transformative power of artistic expression in fostering spiritual and cultural harmony. Each performance offered a glimpse into the richness of human creativity and collective joy. As attendees departed, they carried with them a renewed appreciation for the intersection of art, spirituality, and community.
