In an impressive feat, Yoga exponent Tanushree Pitrodi has set her 8th world record in the discipline of Natya Shastra. The accomplished practitioner entered the Golden Book of World Records by presenting 108 ‘karana’ postures described in the ancient text in just 3 minutes and 29 seconds.


The event, which took place at the Bannanje Narayana Guru Auditorium, witnessed Tanushree’s remarkable display of skill and dedication. The 108 karanas, a combination of leg movements, hand gestures, and body postures, have their origins in Lord Shiva and have been codified in the Natya Shastra.

Speaking about the achievement, Tanushree’s guru Sriramakrishna Kodancha explained that each karana is not merely a pose but a practiced movement. He further elaborated that the karanas hold significant importance in Natya Shastra and are widely recognized for their therapeutic benefits.

Gaurav Mittal, the representative of the Golden Book of World Records, was present at the event to hand over the certificate of record to Tanushree. The accomplished practitioner, who is also a student of St. Sicily High School, has set an impressive eight world records, including one Guinness World Record and seven Golden Book of Records.
