To get into the Guinness Book of World Records, a mega yoga demonstration will be held in Dakshina Kannada (DK) and Udupi districts on Wednesday, Udupi District Minister Vinay Kumar Sorake said on Sunday.
Sri Dharmasthala Manjunatheshwara Yoga Matthu Naithika Shikshana Yojane of Shanthivana Trust in association with the Department of Public Instructions will conduct the event.
He said ‘Yoga for Future’ is the theme of the event. “One lakh students from two districts will gather at 50 different playgrounds between 10 and 10.30 am and demonstrate Soorya Namaskara and a few yogasanas to get in to the Guinness Book,” he said. Some of the yogasanas include Trikonasana, Parshwa Konasana, Shashankasana, Pavana Mukthasana, Sarvangasana, Vajrasana, Makarasana, Bhujangasana and Dhanurasana.
“This attempt will be categorised as the world’s largest yoga class at multiple locations,” event co-coordinator Shailaja Srikanth said. There will be one yoga instructor for every 50 students.
Meanwhile, two students from Sri Dharmasthala Manjunatheshwara Yoga and Naturotheraphy College will demonstrate yoga at each of the 50 places and two Class A officials will be the witnesses. The entire event will be videographed.
“The exact number of students participating will be counted by the number of ribbon bands issued,” she said.
