Class V Girl From Udupi Sets Guinness Record In Yoga
Tanushree Pitrody, an 8-year-old student from Udupi, has astounded everyone with her record-breaking Yoga performance. The class V student has made it to the Guinness Book of World Records in the category of ‘One minute miracle’ by doing ‘Niralamba Poorna Chakrasana’ 19 times.
Santhosh Agarwal, a representative of the Golden Book of World Records, witnessed her performance and handed over the certificate.
Born in March 2009, Tanushree’s father Uday Kumar works as an electrical contractor. Her mother Sandhya is a homemaker. Tanushree’s parents introduced her to dance when she was three-and-a-half years old. She has a whopping 269 stage shows across the state to her credit. The girl is currently learning Bharatanatyam, hip-hop and semi-classical dance at the Mukuntha Kripa Music and Fine Arts, Udupi.
Her father told TOI that Tanushree didn’t attend any yoga classes as she knew dance movements well and her body is quite flexible. Five months ago, Kushi, a girl from Mysuru, set a record in ‘Niralamba Poorna Chakrasana’ by doing it 15 times in a minute.
“I casually asked my daughter if she could do it. Without practice, she did it nine times. So I decided to give her practice. To break Kushi’s record, Tanu had to perform 16 times, but she done it 19 times in a minute. I’m proud of her,” he shares.
Tanushree envisions herself to be a dance and yoga teacher in future. She credits her achievement to her her parents who used to download YouTube videos for her
Her mother and Shobith Shetty of Dharmastala Ayurvedic College in Pareeka guided her in yoga. She also mentioned that her parents are ready to go any distance for her and her sister Ruthu. She wants to make her family proud.
The young girl has proved that there is limitless potential in each one of us waiting to be unleashed. Her achievement is definitely going to motivate millions of children across the country to take up Yoga and make it an everyday part of their routine.
