Education is not just books, lessons, demonstrations, results and marks. Learning blossoms in many different ways and so it is very essential to provide a variety of opportunities for our children to express themselves. Maharishi Vidya Mandir, Thiruvotriyur conducts regular classes by well trained teachers to encourage children to appreciate and excel in music, dance, drawing, painting and other handicrafts. All these activities help children connect with each other and the nature in a unique way that is beyond our imagination. The children always surprise us by their innovative creations.
We provide sports training by engaging expert trainers in both indoor and outdoor games. Children have a variety of options to choose from, which include Badminton, Boxing, Archery, Skating, Gymnastics, Silambam, Table Tennis, Carom board and Chess.

Above all, sports, as life is, are full of opportunities and possibilities. That is why, preparing our children to participate in sports events is very essential.
Our club activities provide opportunities for our children to research and implement projects in science, mathematics, language and ecology by taking them to field visits and training them in organic farming and self-sustenance so that they will be able to develop a desire to live in sync with nature and face any situation in life with clarity and confidence.

Yoga is an integral part of our tradition. It is India’s gift to the world. The word yoga means union. The union here refers to experiential reality of oneness. It is training the mind and body to synchronize between themselves and then synchronize the being with the cosmic energy. Yoga is essentially a spiritual discipline. It is an art and science of healthy living. Thus the aim of yoga is self-actualization. It is globally accepted by the UNO declaration. 11th December is celebrated as International Yoga Day. We at Maharishi Vidya Mandir, Tiruvotriyur practice yogasanas and meditation along with our children every working day between 8.00 am and 8.30 am.
