Anaadi Foundation was featured in today’s newspaper The New Indian Express’s Edex edition. Founder, V Adinarayanan, was interviewed about his personal journey in Yoga and his vision to provide better education to his students.
Here is an excerpt of the interview:
What led you to quit a day job to set up the Anaadi Foundation?
It has to do with the fact that I respect students, a lot. I think they have the energy and capability to do wonders in life, if given the right direction. Yoga has helped me get where I am and thus I want to pass this legacy on to the students. After getting enthusiastic response from students of Amrita University, where I taught Cultural Education, I wanted to reach out to more students in the country. Thus, I left my job in June 2015 to set up Anaadi Foundation.
Is the organization only about Yoga or is there more to it?
Yoga forms the primary base of the organisation but it is dedicated to the self-unfoldment of youth through its carefully designed programs with science and spirituality as building blocks. The program is designed to have Mahabharatha based teachings which involve the narration of the detailed storylines of the Mahabharatha together with discussions on scientific, social and philosophical aspects. Combined with psychology based activities, it helps participants apply the deep principles of the Mahabharatha to handle their day to day problems.
