About Us:

Sri Y N College has been committed to promoting the physical and mental well-being of its students by establishing a Yoga and Meditation Centre on campus in 2004, under the direction of the esteemed Acharya K G Prasada Raju, Founder of Sri Vasista Sevasram, Antharvedi, Andhra Pradesh. The Centre offers a 15-day Certificate Course in ‘Yoga’ to students interested in exploring the benefits of Yoga and Meditation. A senior faculty member, well-versed in Yoga, has been appointed as the coordinator to provide the necessary guidance and support. The course, which runs in the evenings from 4 PM to 5 PM throughout the year (except during examination periods), covers physical fitness exercises, suryanamaskaraas, yoga aasanas, pranayama, and meditation. The first 30 minutes of each session are dedicated to imparting moral principles and astaanga yoga.

Through this blend of theory and practice, students are encouraged to recognize and harness their innate strengths, promoting a sense of self-awareness and mindfulness. Moreover, the Centre regularly invites spiritual masters from different places to deliver discourses and conduct workshops to provide a well-rounded educational experience.

In addition, the Yoga Centre collaborates with the Ramakrishna Seva Samithi of Narsapur to offer students opportunities to participate in competitions and workshops outside the campus. Swamijis from the Math also visit the College to deliver enlightening discourses and enhance students’ spiritual growth.
