Yogathon New Zealand


Yogathon is a 2 weeks long national event, organised by Yogathon New Zealand. It aims to create awareness about Yoga and it’s health benefits. The event is open and free for all. The activity focus of the 2 weeks is Surya Namaskars (Sun Salutations). Participants are able to obtain free information and in some cases free introdcution to Surya Namaskars (sun salutations), which are a series of Yoga postures.

Participants keep a record of their daily repetitions of Surya Namaskars for this period. The aim of Yogathon NZ (2014) is to together attain a total of 108,000 repetitions or Surya Namaskars for all the participants combined over this period.

Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutation) is a sequence of yoga postures. A sequence of Surya Namaskar flexes every part of the body. If done at a faster pace, it is a cardiovascular workout.

Who can participate?

Any member of general public can participate. Yogathon is open to individuals of all ages and abilities.
