IT WAS a proud moment for Alokas Arts Academy Malaysia and its students when they bagged two silver medals at the first Mount Everest International Yoga Festival 2018 held in Pokhara, Nepal.

The event involved nine other nations.

It was organised by the Nepal Yoga Sports Association and Nepal Yoga & Nature Cure Association and supported by Nepal’s Youth & Sports Ministry.

Five Alokas Arts Academy yoga students aged six to 11 years were specially selected and given an intensive training by yoga master Segar Guru to take part in the international yoga competition.

The five were S. Sthirraaprejnah Tejhshri, six; S. Dhayanan Savitran, seven; M. Krithiga, nine; and S. Viroshan and V. Varshinee, both 11.

Both Krithiga and Dhayanan Savitran won bronze medals in their respective categories.

Alokas Art Academy principal Vijaya Subramaniam hopes the achievements will pave the way for other parents to enrol their children in similar activities and provide them an opportunity to build their self-esteem.
