India might’ve won 2 Guinness Records on International Yoga Day, and then BJP leader Ram Madhav might’ve stirred a controversy over Vice President Hamid Ansari’s absence which backfired because it turns out Ansari was not invited in the first place! But the most fun of all was DMDK chief Vijaykanth’s attempt to Yoga, which looked like his first ever try at the ancient practice, and you got to see it!!
The video opens with a shaky Vijaykanth, wearing his trademark all-white clothing, as he moves towards the stage where a young boy performs asanas perfectly. Vijaykanth stops to watch the young volunteer and shakes his head as if its cake walk. But when he actually tries to do the poses, he finds out the hard way, that yoga indeed needs a lot of practice.
The clueless DMDK chief seems lost, looking around to understand what is happening. He then takes help from a fellow volunteer and learns how to sit straight! Hilarious moments go ride up hill when its time for breathing exercises. He doesn’t know which nostril to press and which to release. So, there is this awkward moment when he pauses to stare at his own fingers.
Throughout the seven minute laughter-riot, the DMDK leader, flinches, winks, staggers, almost-falls and attempts teaching yoga to his 100-or-so party members.

International Yoga Day, this 21st June, 2015 was something on a grand scale for India, as it achieved what it wanted to in a nutshell, two Guinness World Record. The NAMO government had already been planning on it for a long time, the grandeur of the Yoga day was felt country wide and especially the capital Delhi.
One of the Guinness World Records  was for 35,985 participants performing Yoga asanas at one venue (the most at at a single known time), which earlier was in 2005; 29,973 students from 362 schools performing Yoga in Gwalior.
The second record was for the most number of nationalities at a Yoga Lesson, a category introduced for the first time for an yoga event. The minimum criteria set for any yoga event to enter the record books was participation of at least 50 nationalities and 84 nationalities performed Yoga at Rajpath.

Yoga in air, okay this is new and International Yoga day is soaring high. SpiceJet has collaborated with Insha Foundation of Sadhuguru to conduct mid-air yoga sessions on some of its Boeing flights this Sunday.

There’s a form of yoga named as “Upa Yoga” which the SpiceJet crew and the Isha Foundation instructors will perform at a height of 35,000 feet on June 21, the International Yoga Day.

According to the airline, approximately 50 dedicated Isha instructors and SpiceJet crew members, who have been specially trained to perform Upa Yoga, will undertake a 10-minute session onboard select Boeing flights across the SpiceJet network.

Passengers onboard the flights will be encouraged to participate in the yoga exercises while seated, SpiceJet said in a release. Upa is a simple yet powerful style of yoga that activates the joints, muscles and energy system and incorporates pranayams.
