Coaching Institute Aims to Provide 72,000 Participants for Series of Yoga Events Planned on June 21 in Kota to Create World Record

With the International Yoga Day inching closer, the stage is being set in Kota to host one of the biggest international events on the world's calendar. Renowned coaching hub for engineering and medical aspirants, Kota is now prepared for an image makeover. This city of Rajasthan is all set to make an attempt to create a World Record by organizing a series of Yoga events.

"Kota has a reputation of training the best medical and engineering aspirants to make a career of their choice. Working closely with students for these many years, we realize the stress that the students undergo. Keeping this in mind, we have always encouraged our students to practice yoga, as it helps in feeling relaxed and good," said Rajesh Maheshwari , founder-director, Allen Career Institute.

The fact that the city is vying to enter the Guinness Book of World Records for hosting the maximum number of yoga events on June 21st, has definitely encouraged everyone to do their bit. Adding on to the public enthusiasm is the fact that yoga guru, Baba Ramdev, will be present in Kota, when the city will attempt to make it to the Guinness Book of World Records.

"It's not just the general public or the organizers that are sweating it out at these yoga camps, which have been operational since the past one month; Allen Career Institute has also been organizing such camps for its students, so that they get a grip of it. To be honest, at the moment, yoga fever has gripped Kota, for sure," said Maheshwari.

He then added, "With the national exam results declared, either there are new aspirants or the ones who will be appearing for both medical and engineering tests in the year 2019 are pretty relaxed and can actively participate in such camps. The idea is to make them aware of the benefits of yoga, so that they make it part of their life style."

For about a month, Kota has been in the yoga frenzy, especially after Baba Ramdev confirmed his presence in the coaching city of India. Most of those encouraging people to participate in this event in order to create a world record have till date organized camps at 500 locations, within Kota city.

"The idea of making it to the Guinness Book of World Records is definitely commendable. It will help in re-branding the city, which till date is famous for its coaching centres. We have been training our students to participate in this mega event, which aims at gathering a maximum number of participants at a specified venue to perform yoga asanas and with this soon Kota will also be known as Yoga City too. At present, Mysore holds the record for having as many as 55,000 people perform yoga, and we are looking forward to break this record with 72,000 Allen students and citizens of Kota city," said Maheshwari.
