The development of the BODY focuses on physical fitness and the maintaining of an active and healthy lifestyle.
Aiglon education provides physical challenge to build strength, resilience and ﬁtness as well as to build conﬁdence and a sense of achievement as the rewards for physical effort.
This process builds respect, both for oneself and for others who undertake physical challenges. Respect for one’s body includes good living habits such as healthy diet, exercise, rest, personal cleanliness and tidiness.
Respect for one’s body requires making choices that reﬂect responsibility and the avoidance of habits that diminish ﬁtness and physical aptitude.
The development of the body can take a diversity of forms. In addition to personal exercise regimes, physical development is promoted through team and individual sports, expeditions and performance. Furthermore, dexterity, co-ordination, sensitivity and awareness can be developed through a wide range of skills that include all the creative and performing arts.
A ﬁt and able body means that physical effort can be applied in the service of others.
