Also new this year is that we're working more on flexibility.

Students doing Sun Salutations as a warm up before sports.

We started doing our first 40-day-meditation. We're getting up at 2 am to meditate for 2 1/2 hours. This year we're reciting the "Re Man" Shabd for 11000 times.

What does Guru Granth Sahib tell about Yoga?

Yoga is an independent faith and probably the oldest Indian faith. The mission of a yogi is to be a Sidh, one who has realized the ultimate and is able to perform miracles. Guru Nanak is said to have had two serious long discussions with them, one in the snow-covered peaks of Himalayas and the other in village Achal near Batala, Punjab. Guru Nanak Dev has written Sidh Gosht, which is the summary of his spiritual dialogue with them. He criticized their practice of remaining Jati, celibate, and claiming superiority over the family men. He did not agree with their philosophy of faith. He rejected them. There are four hymns in Jap Jee advising yogis to practice the right kind of life rather than believing in their rituals and miracles. He also said that yoga is not the right path for achieving the mission of human life and neither is the path of miracles (of which yogis are proud) the path of holy people. ((Guru Granth Sahib) Page 6)

Sikhs do not follow the path of any kind of yoga. Guru says listening to Gurbani is the true yoga. Kundalni gets awakened (the mission is achieved) by being in Gurmat Sangat.
