Sir/ Madam, Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan has decided to encourage yoga education in all its schools.

Yoga is to be taught from class VI onwards in all the Kendriya Vidyalayas.
The Regional Offices are directed to appoint yoga teachers on contractual basis in all the Kendriya Vidyalayas (if any regular yoga teacher is not posted in that school) irrespective of number of sections in the vidyalaya. The remuneration of the yoga teachers appointed on contractual basis shall be similar to the payment made to contractual coaches for the sports.The Syllabus to be followed in different classes for the yoga education is enclosed at Annexure-I.
