To promote good health, yoga classes and fitness courses are organized
for children, youths and adults in many BAPS centers. Professionals
who have had years of experience conduct these courses.
The Sanstha regularly
promotes exercise and fitness through sports activities like:
- Annual Sportsí Day Meets
- Athletic Meets
- Swimming trips
- Martial Artsí classes
- Football matches
- Basketball meets
- Badminton Tournaments
- Cricket matches
BAPS centers in Kolkata
and London have their own local league cricket teams. The London
center even has its own football team playing in the local league.
In London, the Haveli complex has a well-equipped gymnasium encouraging
people of all ages to participate in sporting activities. This
idea was much appreciated by the ex-Prime Minister of Britain,
Mr. John Major and the Archbishop of Canterbury, Rt. Rev. George
The Sanstha has plans
to build similar halls in other centers.
