Vegan yoga instructor and social activist Yasmin Fudakowska-Gow recently broke the record for the longest yoga marathon, pending Guinness World Record certification. Fudakowska-Gow’s 32-hour marathon of uninterrupted yoga flow also took donations and raised awareness for the Stephen Lewis Foundation, an organization that works to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS in Africa. Leading up to the marathon that concluded August 3, Fudakowska-Gow completed 108 Sun Salutations a day for 108 days. “This idea comes from my heart and is fueled by a sincere desire to promote yoga, bring people together, and to demonstrate the power of this ancient practice,” said Fudakowska-Gow, who is also passionate about the link between environmentalism and a plant-based diet.
