Dubai: If you are among those workaholics whose brains and bodies always go into overdrive, better go for a healthy break now than be a candidate for a breakdown soon, a yoga master has cautioned.
“We all want to go faster and faster and we don’t know how to take a break. When a car has to go very fast, you also need to have a good brake for it. If you don’t have a good brake, you’ll crash at some point,” Girin Govind, yoga master and secretary to Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, Art of Living (AOL) founder, told Gulf News ahead of the Yogic Marathon or Yogathon 2013 scheduled on Friday in Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
Organised by AOL, Yogathon 2013 is a free event for yoga and fitness enthusiasts where they will be taught the 12 yogic Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutations) postures to relax the body, mind and breath rhythms for improved wellness and deliver amazing results in a short time.
Yogathon 2013, which is now in its third year, is also a mega-challenge for participants to complete 54 sets (108 rounds) of the Surya Namaskar for a Gold Certificate. All participants, however, will receive a “Spirit of Yoga Certificate”.
