Nearly 1,632 pregnant women in Gujarat’s Rajkot city today set up a new Guinness Book of world records by practicing yoga on the occasion of International Yoga Day.
“Yoga sends a strong message that it can be very useful and beneficial. We want pre-natal yoga to be introduced permanently for pregnant ladies. We have started it in Rajkot. We will provide this to 20,000 women. More than 140 private doctors and more than 80 government doctors are associated with this. I am hopeful this message would be beneficial to all,” District Collector Vikrant Pandey told the media.
Earlier, the record was held by China, where more than 900 pregnant women had taken part in the yoga practice.
