70-yr-old sets yoga record

DC | Coreena Suares | 10th Feb 2013

Hyderabad: Age is no barrier to realise your dreams. This was proved  by 70-year-old Y. Narasimha Murthy, who  entered the World Telugu Book of Records by performing ‘Jala Yoga’ (underwater yoga).

Murthy, a resident of Dilshuknagar,  is a retired State Bank of Hyderabad manager. He performed 38 yoga postures under water in 30 minutes at the Saroornagar stadium swimming pool.

“I have been practicing the postures since the last 10 years. I dedicate the record to my family and friends,” Murthy said.

According to officials of  World Telugu Book of records, “He was supposed to perform 30 postures, but he performed 38 of them in 30 minutes and created the record.”
