Nagpur-based wellness startup and yoga platform, Habuild, has set a new World Record of having the largest number of people doing yoga. The feat witnessed over 2,46,252 people from all across the globe to participate in their Live Yoga Sessions and keep their fitness New Year goals intact on Jan 12.
The official team of Guinness World Records invigilated the prestigious event. The officials declared that 2,46,252 participants were part of the event and celebrated the importance of Yoga and well-being on a global scale. The platform is running a 21-Day Challenge free of cost with them without giving up for 21 days.
The habit building and holistic wellness brand, Habuild, conducted the online event to inspire people from different walks of life to do something about fitness in the New Year and not give up on their resolutions within the first two weeks. The free yoga option is only to encourage people to be motivated to work out and decide to go in for a subscription only once they are sure about not quitting.
Referring to the remarkable achievement, Saurabh Bothra, CEO & Certified Yoga Instructor, Habuild said, “It is a matter of immense pride for Habuild and the entire community that committed to health and wellness over the past few weeks to attain such a remarkable achievement. On January 12th, we celebrate Swami Vivekananda Jayanti. He strongly believed in ‘Charaiveti’ which means “Keep going”. He passionately traveled the world, sharing India’s values and culture to the world. He just kept going in his pursuit. ‘Charaiveti Charaiveti’ encourages us to persist. Hence, we purposely chose the 12th of January or the Quitters Day to celebrate this huge success and announce to the world that if one decides to commit to the power of yoga, then there’s nothing that can stop them, and not everyone is a Quitter. I am grateful to all participants who understood the essence of Yoga and it was an honour to see the footfall increase from the previous challenges too.”
The ongoing 21-Day Yoga Challenge is witnessing hundreds of yoga enthusiasts from diverse realms of life. The participants in the historic event came from 92 different countries across the globe, while there was representation from all the states of India. This ongoing yoga challenge commenced on January 2, 2024 and it remains open to all participants, free of cost, until January 22, 2024.
