BANGALORE: Yogathon Challenge, nation wide campaign to spread awareness about Yoga will be organised by the Art of Living on World Heath Day on April 7. People from across 26 states and four union territories will be trained to perform Surya Namaskaras and complete 108 rounds on a single platform.
Surya Namaskar is a series of 12 asanas which helps people to tone up their body to rejuvenate internal organs and bring good health in simple, yet a effective matter. It will be held in 1,800 venues across the country in various school, colleges, stadiums and also in prisons.
Dinesh Ghodke, a member of the youth wing at the Art of Living said, “Bangalore alone is set to witness over 24,000 participants who will perform Yoga at 97 venues. The venues include M S Ramiah Collage and KIMS College among many.” The event will be held in two sessions. The first session is from 6 am to 7.30 am and the second session is from 5pm to 6:30 pm. Participants will receive a ‘spirit of yoga certificate’ and the winner who completes 54 rounds will be awarded a certificate.
