USA, January 31, 2010: Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh USA, Inc. (HSS) concluded its Fourth Annual Health for Humanity Yogathon on January 31, 2010. During the two-week Yogathon, over 9,000 participants completed nearly 950,000 repetitions of the yoga routine known as the Sun Salutation, or Surya Namaskar.

HSS launched the Health for Humanity Yogathon as an annual event in 2007 to create awareness about yoga and its advantages in achieving a healthy body, mind, and spirit. Participation has increased each year.

HSS Yogathon National Coordinator Piyush Satapathy was pleasantly surprised after tallying this year’s numbers. “We substantially exceeded last year’s numbers by all measures: participants, repetitions, locations, and supporting organizations. To maintain the challenge, we will have to increase all our targets for next year’s Yogathon.”
