Meet Ruthvi, an eighth-grader at BGS Public School in Channarayapatna. For the past four years, Ruthvi has immersed herself in the art of yoga. From foundational poses like Vrikshasana (Tree Pose) and Ardha Chakrasana (Half Wheel Pose) to more advanced ones like Vamadevathiprusana and Gandabherunda Asana, she has mastered approximately 200 asanas. Her dedication extends to pranayama techniques such as Bhramari Pranayama and Kapalbhati Kriya.

But Ruthvi’s commitment to yoga goes beyond physical fitness. She believes that regular practice enhances concentration, self-confidence, and overall intelligence—a positive influence on her studies. Starting yoga at a young age, she has already garnered numerous awards in state and national-level competitions.

In pursuit of excellence, Ruthvi dedicates two hours each morning to online training. Under the guidance of yoga gurus Chandru, Sarath, and K.R. Naveen, she hones her skills. Currently, K.R. Naveen from Kadur provides her with invaluable online coaching.

For Ruthvi, yoga isn’t just about physical health; it’s a mental tonic. She describes it as “Sanjeevini”—a remedy for maintaining well-being. Her journey has taken her to 50 yoga competitions across Bhadravati, Mysore, Koramangala, and New Delhi, where she consistently shines and brings home awards.
