Yoga Competition

The yoga competition is the final competition of the year. It’s an opportunity for the students to practice and demonstrate a basic level of yogic fitness through the yogic fitness test which is comprised of three minutes of camel pose, bow pose and 108 frogs. It’s also an opportunity for certain students to push their limits in the individual competitions. The general ability for our students to practice plank pose, stretch pose and sarabdandes are pushed forward every year. Here were this year’s results including three new high scores.

Special Awards

At the end of each year we take time to celebrate those who have excelled and those who have put a tremendous amount of effort into the various aspects of the MPA program. Here are the students who were recognized this year. One unique award that was given this year was awarded to Manjot Singh for being an overall embodiment of the MPA Spirit. Manjot Singh excels in all aspects of the MPA program from academics to sports, yoga and leadership. He is always ready and willing to face anything with a positive attitude. He’s liked by all of the students and is a great representation of what MPA stands for and is trying to achieve. The yoga competition and the special awards were the last things to factor into this year’s winning house determination. Manjot Singh and fellow squad leader Paramjot Kaur led Gold House to their third victory in a row. Congratulations Gold House!
