We volunteer for Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh, a US-based non-profit organization that aims to promote community spirit and ideals among Hindus residing in the United States. Our focus is to instill the values and virtues of Dharma in our next generation and contribute to the overall physical, intellectual, and spiritual development of local communities. With this core idea in mind, we have been organizing Surya Namaskar Yajna – The Health for Humanity Yogathon every year around mid-January, wherein we reach out to local communities to perform this unique routine of Sun Salutation (Surya Namaskar) Yoga that can significantly improve our overall health and well-being.
This Sun Salutation Yogathon (SNY) is a nationwide effort to create awareness about yoga and its advantages in achieving a healthy body, intellect, and spirit. In the 2010 Yogathon, more than 9,000 people from 40 states performed nearly 950,000 Surya Namaskar, and realized the potential of this project in contributing to their positive health. HSS encourages its members at its 200+ centers across the country, and all interested people and organizations to perform one million repetitions of Surya Namaskar.
