Yogathon New Zealand is organising a nationwide ‘Health for Humanity’ Yogathon from 12 to 26 October 2013. This is the third consecutive year of the Yogathon event - collective practice of Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutations) - in New Zealand.

Yogathon NZ aims to create awareness about Yoga and its health benefits. During the two-week long national event, a cumulative total of 108,000 repetitions of Surya Namaskars (Sun salutations), a sequence of simple yoga postures, are expected to be performed by all participants combined. The event is open and free for all.

Yogathon NZ 2013 invites various yoga centres, schools and tertiary institutes, social, cultural, and spiritual and community organisations, regardless of individual faiths and beliefs, to register in this ‘Health for Humanity’ Yogathon.

The purpose of Yogathon NZ is to promote yoga in a scientific perspective of health, to make it a part of school curriculum in future, encourage healthy living and connect yoga schools and practitioners in New Zealand through participation on this annual event.
