Yogathon transformed into YogaSeva

Yogathon launched in August 2010 transformed into YogaSeva, an integral aspect of UtsavSeva
Yoga has become a universal language of spiritual exercise in the United States, crossing the many lines of religions and cultures. The Dharmic Hindu community actively supported and engaged communities in President Obama’s “Active Lifestyle Challenge” through Yogathon which focused on youth and adults, in a nationally coordinated open house, to bring health benefits to the communities. 

This event was held on Sunday, Aug. 29th, 2010.  The open house included an introduction of the
temples to the community; explanation of yoga and its connection with philosophy and tradition, with a workshop on yog-asanas for youth and adults.  Nationally, more than 150 temples, ashrams and centers participated in providing yoga service within their communities. The yoga workshops were coordinated through Patanjali Yoga Peeth and Art of Living Foundation

Yogathon transformed into YogaSeva in September 2010 and is an integral part of UtsavSeva
