Gurukulam Outreach, 2009

For approximately one week the Gurukulam students took a small break from their own classroom studies to partake in some hands on teaching opportunities with young people. They traveled to fifty schools within about a one hour radius of the ashram. Their mission was to share a bit of the tradition with the youth and children in the community as part of India's National Yoga Awareness Week.On average, the Gurukulam students taught 2-4 hour sessions of yoga in both primary and secondary schools.  Lessons included basic asana and pranayama techniques. The children ranged in age from about 5 to 16 years old and class sizes were anywhere from 30 to 200 + students each. Over all it was a great experience for everyone who participated.
