AHMEDABAD: Gujarat Chief Minister Anandiben Patel today said the state government was thinking of introducing a yoga course in the schools across the state.

"We are planning to introduce a program in schools to teach some particular yoga positions to children," she said, addressing a gathering of Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM), BJP's youth wing.

"After regular practice and training, these children will eventually become qualified yoga teachers. We will supply trained yoga teachers to the world, as the demand is growing," said Patel.
