Dubai-Based Indian Girl Smashes World Record for Yoga

Dubai-based Indian girl has broken world record for yoga

A Dubai-based Indian girl has smashed a world record for doing a hundred yoga poses in a small box within three minutes, the media reported.

This is Samridhi Kalia’s third yoga title, and the second in less than a month, the Khaleej Times reported on Saturday.

The 11-year-old entered the Golden Book of World Records once again on Thursday for executing the ‘fastest hundred yoga postures performed in restricted space’.

She completed the challenge in three minutes and 18 seconds at the Burj Khalifa’s viewing deck.

Her third world record just weeks after getting the title for performing around 40 advanced yoga postures in one minute inside a small box.

She claimed the second world record on International Day of Yoga, which is observed on June 21 every year.

The Grade 7 student of Ambassador School in Dubai believes that such incredible achievements are made possible with sheer hard work and perseverance.

“All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them. Work hard in silence, let success be your noise. I feel that my greatest asset is not my physical ability, it is my mental ability,” the Khaleej Times quoted Kalia as saying.

Apart from three hours of daily yoga practice, she plays lawn tennis, cycles, swims, enjoys ice skating, and is learning badminton as well.
