Yoga record on international yoga day. An 11-year-old girl named Samridhi Kalia set the Yoga record of posing for 40 yoga postures in less a minute. The girl nailed the live-streaming by posing 40 yoga postures and entered the Golden Book of World Records.
She amazed the world by performing 40 yoga postures in one minute inside a small box. it was on Sunday she performed the yoga postures. She is a grade-7 student of Ambassador School in Dubai. Her parents are from India.
She said hard work, practice, and perseverance paid off. “I feel one should never give up. I practice at least two hours every day. I look up to my maternal grandmother who lives in India. She is over 70 but still gets up at 4.30 am every day to go to for her yoga classes. It feels nice when everybody is proud of you. It encourages you to be your best.”
Samridhi is an expert in various yoga asanas along with accolades in artistic and rhythmic yoga. She has won several awards and also bagged Pravasi Bharatiya Divas Award in January for her outstanding achievement in the field of Yoga.
“I always try to challenge myself further every time. The first record I created in January this year was for doing the maximum number of advanced yoga postures, which were about 33 postures in a span of one minute, not in a restricted area.”
“I first got inspired by watching other children, who were excelling in their particular fields and creating similar records, so I thought why not do the same?”
According to her father, “She first started doing yoga in school and we noticed she had a knack for it. Her school was participating in a yoga competition in Malaysia and she insisted on going there. That was her first overseas trip alone with her school, about five years ago, where she won a few medals. We are extremely proud of her. She has secured winning spots at most events she participated in and has traveled across the globe for competitions. I feel parents should identify their children’s talents and encourage them to endeavor in their areas of interest so that they can achieve greater heights in their pursuits.”
