Yoga world record: Ahead of the annual occasion of International Yoga day that will be celebrated on June 21, a Mysuru girl has added to its glory in a wonderful way with her truly magnificent achievement. The 13-year-old girl Khushi has set a world record of performing a certain yogasan (yoga posture). On Sunday, she had performed Niraalamba Poorna Chakrasana, a yoga posture 15 times in a minute, which made it a world record, reported news agency ANI. Amid the rounds of applause at a community hall in Mysuru’s RBI Nagar, the girl was given the certificate of her achievement. However, very few of the people applauding the girl’s feat would know that she was once suffering from respiratory problems. Yes! The girl who had broken previous records made in this category was introduced to Yoga to cure her breathing problems, as per a report by Navbharat Times.
Khushi is a daughter of an official working at the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). In her childhood, the girl had some problems in breathing. Looking for its solution, her father took her to a Yoga Guru. Under the guidance of the Yoga guru, Khushi overcame her problem but this had developed in her an interest in Yoga. After getting fully cured, she decided to continue the practice of Yoga. It was her determination that she took the challenge to go for the world record and achieved it, said the report. Besides inking a world record, the June 11 performance of Khushi has another significance – by performing the Yogasan, she has broken her own personal best score! According to the report, the girl had already performed the Yogasan 13 times during her practice. But on the final day of performance at the community hall of Mysuru’s RBI Nagar, she took it to 15.
