Arogyam

Online Course on Embracing Nature-Aligned approach to Health & Well-being for Children and Early-Teens



आरोग्यं परमं भाग्यं स्वास्थ्यं सर्वार्थसाधनम्॥

Ārogyaṁ Paramaṁ Bhāgyāṁ Svāsthyaṁ Sarvārthasādhanaṁ

Good Health is the Highest blessing through which all other pursuits are accomplished


Where are we now?

We have experienced the horrors of the COVID-19 pandemic over the last two years! So many people across the world have lost their lives & several others have been grossly impacted physically and mentally. Children are the most vulnerable in these unprecedented times of extreme disruption!

To protect an entire generation from succumbing to the viruses that are here and that are to come we urgently need to focus on the complete well-being of children. 


Where we ought to be?

Can we envision a world where there is no environmental degradation, polarity/discord in thinking and complete freedom from diseases? Or is it just a utopia?

The cause for all these challenges stems from the deterioration of human health. When the health of humans improves, the health of the society and the world at large gets enriched. 


The only way to achieve this is through educating and empowering the next generation to direct their lives to attain holistic well-being.


How does one attain holistic well-being?

We have immensely benefited from modern medicine. There is a 'pill' for a disease we might encounter.

While we continue to work on curing diseases, it becomes crucial to also emphasize on 'maintaining good health and preventing diseases'.


This is where we turn towards Bharatiya wisdom which promotes a self-conscious and nature-aligned approach to health & well-being. Yoga & Ayurveda being the quintessence of this wisdom
