Yogathon FAQs


1. What is Yogathon?
Yogathon is an initiative of the Art of Living to create awareness about yoga and create interest in its practice for healthier living. The first ever Yogathon in Singapore happened in April 2013 at ECP & NUS. The next Yogathon in Singapore is happening at NUS on February 11th, 2017 ! Hurry & Register!


2. When and where can I register?


3. What are the categories?
The Yogathon Challenge is to inspire people to learn Sun Salutations and allows you to participate in the marathon to the best of your ability. We have two categories:
Gold Challenge: A serious attempt to complete 108 rounds of Surya Namaskar. Participants will be awarded a Gold Certificate.
Spirit of Participation: An open category to challenge yourself to do as many rounds as you can.


4. Why Sun Salutations?
Sun Salutation is a wholesome body workout comprising a special sequence of 12 yoga postures. Done at a fast pace, it can be an excellent cardiovascular workout that stretches and tones all the muscles. However, done at slow pace, Sun Salutations acts as an efficient stamina building exercise. Research shows, this yoga sequence improves the blood circulation and strengthens the immune system.
