INDORE: Child Prodigy Miss Aavya Thacker of Indore, Madhya Pradesh, India has been included by World Book of Records for being able to do SalambaShirshasana for 12 minutes 30 seconds. Yoga is thought to have been practised since the dawn of civilisation. This spiritual prudence or discipline is founded on an incredibly subtle science that focuses on bringing mind and body into harmony. When it comes to almost anything, children are quick learners and keen observers. Miss Aavya Thacker of Indore, Madhya Pradesh, sets a new record for being able to do SalambaShirshasana (supported head stand) for 12 minutes and 30 seconds. Her incredible talent has been acknowledged by the London World Book of Records, and she gets included in the Kids Edition-2022 for the second time. Yoga has been shown to increase energy, happiness, and promote a healthy weight, as well as cure other mental illnesses. Yoga is both a science and an art of living a healthy lifestyle. Aavya's mother is a yoga instructor and practitioner. She used to take sessions when they resided in Bahrain. She is a Reiki, chakra, and colour therapy expert. Even when she was crawling, Aavya would place her hand in the pranayama position. After she grew up, she used to follow her mother. She used to run and do Shirshasana during lockdown. It didn't occur to parents at the time. Later, based on her interests, they began to focus on and guide her accordingly. SalambaShirshasana is a yoga pose that is inverted. Aavya tried this pose, in which she stood on her head with her hands on either side of her head. At such a young age, she was able to hold this pose for more than 12 minutes 30 seconds with intense determination. Her attempt earned her a place in the Indian book of records as the 'longest duration held headstand position by a child.' She was 6 years, 10 months, and 10 days old when she set the record. Imitation is a significant developmental milestone for a toddler. Acting exactly like their parents is a huge step toward learning everything there is to know about themselves. Aavya began imitating yoga poses and practising with her mother at that point. She approaches it as a task and ensures that she completes it. In setting this second world record, her mother serves as a role model for her. Her parents are contemplating teaching her chakrasana, malasana and other yoga poses in the near future.
