Enriching Students with Yoga

Malaysian Yoga Society (MYS) recently held its National Yoga Camp for boys and 17 to 23 for girls. Over 200 students participated in both camps held at Sekolah Menengah Teknik Kuala Lumpur.

The camps, held for 7 days, taught the students life-enhancing techniques, which included yogic cleansing for a healthier body, Hatha Yoga for a strong body and mind, tratak to improve memory and Yoga Nidra for inner transformation. The students were also given an insight on Yama and Niyama topics.

I love football. My dream is to be a football player one day. I’m a good player in my home too. My football coach always has praises for me in the way I play the game. My favourite football player is Pepe from Portugal’s National Team. I want to follow in his footstep to be a great football player once I grow up.

My dream job is to be a cartoonist. I love cartoons since I was a baby and often wondered about the kind of imagination a cartoonist has. As I became older, my interest in drawing increased. I love art and now am taking several art classes in Agathians. I want to explore deeper into cartoons to be a creative and successful cartoonist once I grow up.

My dream is to be a mechanical engineer. I love machines and technology. I do some simple repair jobs at home in my free time. In fact, my love towards machineries grew deeper as I always watch Discovery Science: National Geography programme on television. Of course, I want to be a good example to my other brothers in my home to help them be successful in their lives too.

I love the ambience of luxurious hotels in Malaysia. I witnessed our latest fundraising event in one of the prestigious hotels in Klang Valley which inspired me more. Since then, I wanted to be a 5-star hotel manager. My dream got stronger and I want to own a hotel before I celebrate my 50th birthday. I know that I can!

My dream is to become a teacher. I strongly believe that knowledge and wisdom are the most expensive assets anyone can possess. As a teacher, I would be one of the “world’s richest men” by spreading knowledge to my future fellow students. Over the years, I learnt that it is not easy to be a successful teacher. I will be one in the near future.

The Agathians Shelter

The Agathians Shelter was founded by the late Siva Balan in 2003 in an attempt to rescue 8 boys from an illegal orphanage closed down. Now, the shelter is a sanctuary for 30 boys. They are either orphans, abandoned or from broken families and are between the ages of 4 and 18 years old. Agathians Shelter is a legally registered welfare home under Pertubuhan Kebajikan Agathians Malaysia and it’s a tax exempted organisation. In the shelter ran by volunteers, the children get the essentials basic needs such as a place to live, food and education. Their educational needs are also met even though they have missed some years of schooling. In addition, the children have talents and are interested in curriculum activities such as music, arts, dance, sports and information technologies. The boys are being equipped with skills and hobbies as to develop a positive mind-set in their life. The skill set is important for them to discover their talents and help them reach their highest potential. The shelter also organizes activities to showcase the shelter, update sponsors on the development of the boys as well as to recruit new sponsors. During these activities, the boys will entertain the audience with their talented performances, and most importantly, have a good time themselves.
