Pupils across UK attempt to break Guinness World Record in Yoga

This autumn, pupils in primary schools across the UK will join a mass online participation attempt to break a world record for the most children to practise yoga together.

Pupils taking part have the chance to create and enter their very own Yoga pose, with the winning pose being practised during the 10 minute attempt at the start of the school day.

“All primary schools are welcome to register and we’re supporting schools with free weekly yoga clips to help prepare children with a handful of Yoga poses for the main event. Any child in any primary school anywhere can take part, it’s an inclusive practise.” comments Joanne Wharton, Yoga in School Specialist at Shaping Healthy Minds Online, children’s online Yoga company.

In 2016, 35,985 people took part in the largest ‘in person’ Yoga lesson in New Delhi, India, whilst last year, 3,118 people broke the world record for most people practising plank pose together in Zhuji, China.
