YICG (Young Indian Culture Group, Inc.), an academy for NYC based Indians, currently offers yoga classes for kids and adults from Long Island and Queens. Students who want to attend the classes can register and join for the group training at the Herricks Middle School in New York, conducted on Saturdays.
According to one of the yoga teachers at YICG, “We hope that by exposing our students to yoga and its healing properties, this younger generation of Indians in NYC would be able to connect with their ancient Indian culture. In fact, this very connection is what we strive to develop in our students by providing such educative sessions.”
Personalized and Beneficial Yoga Classes
The training sessions would incorporate training in breathing, asanas, and relaxation. The students would be guided from simple to complex postures depending on the pace of their progress. The team of instructors at YICG hopes that apart from the fun of being in a group environment, the students would benefit in any or all of the following ways:
• Improved focus of mind
• Improved body flexibility
• Stress relief
• More energy and enthusiasm towards life
• Development of self-esteem
• Improved strength and stamina
• Fat reduction
The training sessions are handled by Deepika Modi, Sunil Modi, and Vasundhara Sureka.
