“If you meditate regularly, even when you don’t feel like it, you will make great gains, for it will allow you to see how your thoughts impose limits on you. Your resistances to meditation are your mental prisons in miniature.” Ram Dass
Balasamskar Kendras Assam added another feather in its cap, started Special Yoga Classes with recognized Yoga teacher for  students of Govt and private schools. This project has started with an aim to reach to those children who are not attending or going to any Balasamskar Kendras of Assam. First day started with 250 children. I delivered my speech and spoke about importance of Yoga and gift of Sanatan Dharma to the world also I spoke about the work of GHHF Assam and GHHF as a whole and role in protecting Sanatan Dharma from the anti-Hindu forces.
Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is very happy to inform you that we have started Bala Samskar Kendras (Schools for children and youth) to enrich them with the greatness of Hindu Dharma and appreciate the sacrifices many leaders have done to protect Bharat. There are many kings who have achieved new heights in their skills, talents, and strength. Unfortunately, Bharath denies its history to its own children and glorified the most undeserving rulers. The government has corrupted the minds of young students since Independence from 1947. It is our effort to teach them the greatness of our scriptures, enrich their minds with timeless wisdom, create a sense of pride through time-tested moral and ethical compass, and make them proud of the science behind all our customs and traditions.
Bala Samskar Kendras started in 2021 and now we have about 200 Bala Samskar Kendras in six States in India and ten in Bangladesh. They are very active and a large number of children are attending and many parents are impressed with their own children and how much they are learning and how they changed behaviorally.
Sri Samrat Dutta, one of the Board Member of GHHF spoke about the importance of Yoga for children. As many of you are aware that our curriculum requires all the students to do Surya Namaskar once a week. 
Yoga is becoming increasingly popular among American children. National Institutes of Health estimates “The percentage of children aged 4-17 years who used yoga in the past 12 months increased significantly from 3.1 percent in 2012 to 8.4 percent in 2017.)  At present it is believed to be more than 10 %.
Yoga and mindfulness have been shown to improve both physical and mental health in school-age children (ages 6 to 12). Yoga improves balance, strength, endurance, and aerobic capacity in children. Yoga and mindfulness offer psychological benefits for children as well. A growing body of research has already shown that yoga can improve focus, memory, self-esteem, academic performance, and classroom behavior, and can even reduce anxiety and stress in children.
Community Residents
Sri Samrat was able to find a certified Yoga teacher and started Yoga classes for the community members. It is the mission of GHHF to make sure our various dimensions of Sanatana Dharma are introduced to the community to make people lead a very productive life. Thus he started these Yoga classes in the community. 
Emerging research studies also suggest that yoga can help children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) by improving the core symptoms of ADHD, including inattentiveness, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. It can also boost school performance in children with ADHD. A growing number of schools now integrate yoga and mindfulness into physical education programs or classroom curriculums, and many yoga studios offer classes for school-age children. Yoga can be playful and interactive for parents and children at home, as well.
Jessica Mei Gershen, a certified yoga instructor who teaches yoga to children at Brooklyn Yoga Project and founder of Yoga For All Needs, recommends making yoga playful and fun for kids, whether in the classroom or at home. In her yoga classes, Gershen weaves in fun games and stories with positive themes like compassion, gratitude, and strength.
“Yoga is really effective because it’s so tangible. Learning physical postures builds confidence and strength as well as the mind-body connection,” Gershen says. She also has found that the effects of yoga go beyond physical fitness and also allow kids to build confidence and awareness beyond the classroom. “Through yoga, kids start to realize that they are strong and then are able to take that strength, confidence, acceptance, and compassion out into the world,” notes Gershen.
