After Chandra Bahadur Dangi made the world record as the world’s shortest man standing at just 55cm tall, another Nepali man is all set to do the country proud again by setting another world record in yoga.
Nani Ram Dahal reportedly practiced yoga for a record 37 continuous hours from 8 am on Monday to 9 pm on Tuesday. He broke the previous world record for the longest yoga marathon set by an Austrian citizen, Michael Schwab, in September 2009. Schwab held the record at 29 hours and 4 minutes.
An elated Dahal has said he will soon inform the the Guinness Book of World Records to claim the world title for longest yoga practice. He set the “new record” in the presence of a team of 18 yoga experts, including Dammar Sunuwar and Meera Barakoti, amid a programme organised at Balmiki Campus, Exhibition Road.
