5,000 students do yoga to promote world peace

This one’s all about the pictures; unfortunately, all the photos are from Getty Images, which is extremely protective of its copyright, so we won’t risk re-posting here. But check them out at the link above. A little write up from the Daily Mail:

Now that’s what you call a yoga class. 

Almost 5,000 teachers and students started this morning with a massive stretching and flexing session in the south Indian city of Hyderabad.

The group from Delhi Public school, which has branches in Hyderabad and Secunderabad, performed seven classic yoga postures while reciting prayers for world harmony and peace. 

Yoga was developed in India between 600 and 500BC and is used in schools across the county to prepare students for a day of lessons by helping them relax and focus their minds. 

I believe it took place early Monday.
