As part of its commemoration of the International Day of Yoga and its commitment to promoting peace throughout its schools, community and the world, the district hosted its annual Yoga for Harmony and Peace assembly at Dodd.

The program featured students, physical education teachers and yoga instructors leading their peers and staff members through a variety of poses and exercises. They spoke about the benefits of guided meditation and how the practice of yoga allows for the discovery of oneness within the self, world and nature. As a testament to its dedication of mindfulness and peace, Dodd was also presented with a citation from Nassau County Executive Laura Curran’s office by her representative and Nassau County Office of Minority Affairs Program Director Dexter Hedgepeth.

“You will learn more about yoga as you continue to practice it, but I’m truly inspired by you taking this knowledge with you from here into high school and into your lives,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kishore Kuncham. “Whatever techniques you have learned are going to help you physically, emotionally, spiritually and mentally. It helps you get focused and [promotes] concentration, peace and happiness in everything that you do. I’m so glad to be a part of this celebration.”
