Capability Enhancement and Development Schemes

Yoga and Meditation


College education in Loyola is all about “Finding Yourself”, which means figuring out who you are, what you stand for and how you identify yourself as an individual. In order to thrive, one has to stay healthy, both physically and emotionally, with a positive state of mind. Yoga and meditation helps students to cope up with stress and find the inner essence.

This has been a regular practice of the college to organize a spiritual retreat cum meditation for all Catholic students in the campus every academic year. Once a month a prayer service is organized for Catholics with the celebration of Eucharist in the church, at the same time a common prayer is organized for students of other faiths. This is a time out from daily demands of life from the habits and patterns that keep us bound in our actions and thoughts. Without such retreat and meditation one may end up getting wound up with the routine of life, making it difficult to feel our relationship with the divine or with ourselves.

The benefits of a spiritual retreat organized by Loyola Campus Ministry, for all Catholic students helps to put things in perspective and supports the life that is in harmony with the deepest values. The spiritual retreat cum mediation helps reinforcement of spiritual health.
