Both mental development and physical exercise is necessary for success in life. Exercise is essential for having a sound mind in a sound body. The University has a well equipped gymnasium for students and staff residing on the campus. The facility provides an ideal conducive environment for staff students for a well rounded workout.
Yoga and Meditation is a wonderful gift for all. It can make the life even more beautiful if incorporated in life at a very young age. Both of them provide a perfect building block for a healthy, joyful, and gratifying life. From the time immemorial, the knowledge of Yoga and Meditation was imparted to young pupils in India. Efforts are now being made to do the same in our University as well. Now the time has come when we as nurturers and caregivers must reach out to the students for reviving this age-old practice. There is a dire need of placing yoga and meditation on an upper pedestal in student's life. These two have been recognized as a great enabling force to develop positivity and prosperity in life, further leading to optimism and confidence. Keeping in mind, the important role played by these activities, here at Jagannath University has been inculcated in daily life of both students and staff.
