Author(s): Nabanita Bera
Abstract: The present system of education has mostly failed to achieve the objective of integrated development of the body, mind and spirit of learners. Mere science and technology based information- oriented education cannot make students to be a perfect well-being. That is why the present writer has come forward to focus on the matter and considered the need of integration of Yoga Education in the existing system of education for all round development of students by impacting upon its different dimensions—the individual and social, cognitive and emotional, psychomotor and behavioural and moral and spiritual. But it is a matter of consideration that how and to what extent Yoga Education is to be introduced in the curriculum. The present paper emphasizes on the role of Yoga in education and put forward some suggestions on the ways of integration of Yoga Education in the existing education.
