Free Online Fitness Classes

Given that students are now home-bound and are unable to step out even for a stroll in the park, CBSE has introduced free live fitness classes to help students stay fit through this lockdown period. These sessions are aimed at helping the students with simple actionable tips around basic exercises, nutrition, yoga & meditation.

Launched on 15 April, these fitness classes can be accessed on the following channels: Youtube, Facebook, and Instagram at 9.30 a.m. every morning. These fitness videos will also be available online for students to refer to at a later time.
