Education plays the most crucial role in the improvement of the quality of life of the citizens of a country. After the NPE’86 the quality aspect in the field of education has been emphasised in our country. But in doing so, many challenges are coming in front of the Indian system of education. At this backdrop the author seeks to study the need of yoga education in schools and to suggest some yoga practices in school stage. The author based his study on the secondary sources and treated the same following analytical method. The study reveals that yoga aims at integrating the body, mind and spirit through a system of Asan, Pranayama and meditation. Yoga is a form of exercise that increases the psycho-motor co-ordination. Practicing yoga is a process of gaining control over the mind; it increases concentration and attention-span, and intelligence of the children. A class-specific structure of yoga curriculum may be followed in schools to spread the sweet fragrance of yoga among the students.
