Yoga and fitness classes held at BAPS mandirs raise awareness about personal fitness. Youths focusing on their academics and careers often neglect staying fit. At BAPS mandirs, youths are taught to exercise and eat healthy through these classes. These courses provide interactive methods of instruction, including practical demonstrations of yogic postures and exercises, video presentations, and one-to-one instruction. Martial Arts classes are also taught at many BAPS centers to improve personal fitness, while also focusing on concentration and discipline. Special conventions include morning yoga classes in formats that are attractive and fun for teens and youths to participate in, such as Yoga on the Seashore, Yoga and Sports, and Traditional Yoga (in traditional apparel such as dhotis). BAPS develops the body, mind, and spirit of youths through its personal fitness programs.
