Undated: Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh USA (HSS) invites you to join with your friends and family in the 8th annual "Health for Humanity Yogathon" or "Surya Namaskar Yajna".

According to HSS this 16-day event aims to create awareness about Yoga and its advantages in achieving a healthy body, mind and spirit.

Surya Namaskar integrates simple Yoga postures in 10-steps that, along with easy breathing technique, can provide immense health benefits to both the body and the mind.

Makar Sankranti day marks the change of season as the sun enters the sign of Capricorn or Makar. Makar Sankranti ushers in longer days; thus, the festivity symbolizes sunshine in life.

To mark this occasion, HSS has organized the "Health for Humanity" Yogathon from January 17th to February 1st, 2015.

This program is open to people of all ages, gender, and races. Details of this event, training resources, and advertising aids are available on the official HSS SNY website: www.hssus.org/sny .
