“Health for Humanity” Yogathon by HSS

published on January 21, 2010

Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh USA, Inc. (HSS) announces its fourth annual Health for Humanity Yogathon beginning January 16, 2010.

The Health for Humanity Yogathon involves a unique, nationwide effort by HSS to create awareness about yoga and its advantages in achieving a healthy body, mind, and spirit. During the two-week Yogathon, from January 16 to 31, HSS will encourage its members and others at its 140 centers across the country to perform one million repetitions of the yoga routine known as the Sun Salutation, or Surya Namaskar.

Last year, over 6,500 people from 34 States participated in the Health for Humanity Yogathon, performing over 700,000 repetitions of the Surya Namaskar yoga routine. Since 2007, the Yogathon has attracted the attention of the yoga community, civic leaders, and even elected officials across the country. Many have encouraged their fellow citizens to participate for a healthier lifestyle.

The Surya Namaskar yoga routine integrates simple postures of well-balanced movements in ten steps with an easy breathing technique to provide immense health benefits, whether you are a beginner or a yoga enthusiast. HSS invites everyone to learn the Surya Namaskar yoga routine, participate in the Health for Humanity Yogathon, and experience the benefits of achieving a healthy body, mind, and spirit through yoga.

If your community organization or yoga school would like more information about participating in the Health for Humanity Yogathon, including training resources and advertising aids to make the project successful, please contact the official HSS SNY website: www.hssus.org/sny.
