Dubai NRI sets world record on International Yoga Day

tt6ayew3Ivan Stanley set a new world record in what he claims is the longest headstand, marking International Yoga Day celebrations on June 21.

The 61-minute shirshasana (headstand posture) is likely to be announced as a new Guinness World Record after the Guinness committee officially verifies his attempt. The video footage of Stanley’s performance and other documents will be provided to Guinness officials.

Stanley, a Christian, said the headstand is considered the king of all yoga postures that has innumerable health, mental and emotional benefits.
