Vishal, a Class 5 student, finds playing tennis a cakewalk now. After learning ‘Prajna Yoga’ through the Art of Living (AoL) Foundation he can clearly sense his opponent’s moves.

“Tennis is my favourite game. After learning Prajna yoga, I am able to sense my opponent’s moves and my body automatically moves towards the ball,” said Vishal, who was among the 30 children who performed the yoga technique at the Art of Living Foundation in Kanakapura Road on Tuesday.

A yoga technique devised by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, it helps children to develop high levels of intuition to enable them to predict, draw and guess despite being blindfolded. 

“My daughter is a very talented horse rider but she would get extremely nervous. She lacked faith in her capabilities. Within 3 months of Prajna Yoga, she has won four medals at the national level,” said Alka Tej Singh, a parent from Rajasthan. 

Divya Kanchibhotla, education scientist, Sri Sri Institute for Advanced Research said, “The AoL’s Prajna Yoga is taught to kids between 5 and 18 years of age. This yogic meditation technique enables children to access, cultivate and retain their inherent intuitive capacity.”

She added, “Their parents and teachers can observe a positive behavioural change in them. After learning this technique, many blind students have stopped using Braille. They read through obvious sensation. This yoga technique also helps autistic kids to improve their concentration.”
