Yoga is a practice that has gained immense popularity in recent years for its numerous benefits on both physical and mental health.

Many individuals around the world have taken up the practice. Some have even set world records for their accomplishments in various yoga poses.

Priya Ahuja, a trained physiotherapist, is one such individual who has made a name for herself in the world of yoga. She set a world record for the longest time performing the ‘Ashta Vakra Asana.’

Her dedication to the practice and her achievements have inspired many to take up yoga and pursue their passions.

Here you will know about Priya’s journey and explore her remarkable achievements in the field of yoga.

Priya Ahuja, a trained physiotherapist and yoga enthusiast, has set a world record by performing ‘Ashta Vakra Asana’ for 3 minutes and 28 seconds.

With this feat, she earned a place in the Guinness Book of World Records.

Later, she performed the same pose for 4 minutes and 26 seconds, entering the India Book of Records.

Priya lost her father at a young age. She was enrolled in a professional physiotherapy training course by her mother, who recognised her talent.

Despite the presence of many yoga schools and centres in Haridwar, Priya established her own clinic, Sparsh Clinic.

Priya’s father-in-law played an instrumental role in helping her realise her dreams, as her father passed away before her achievement.

Her interest in yoga was further inspired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s promotion of it. She has trained numerous physiotherapists who are now providing yoga training.

In 2014, she served as the head of the physiotherapy department at Mata Vaishno Devi Trust Haridwar, where she was impressed by PM Modi’s enthusiasm for yoga.

Priya has received many awards for her contributions to the field of yoga. But she cherishes the ‘Sushma Swaraj Award’ the most.
