A yangsheng (life-nourishing) gymnastics and yoga performance of over 3,000 people on a street in downtown Ho Chi Minh City has set a Vietnamese record as it attracted the largest-ever number of elderly participants. 

The record-setting event took place on Sunday morning on Le Loi Boulevard in District 1.

It was jointly organized by the Ho Chi Minh City Department of Culture and Sports, the Ho Chi Minh City Association of the Elderly, and the Ho Chi Minh City Federation of Yangsheng Gymnastics and Yoga.

The event was launched to mark the International Day of Older Persons (October 1) and respond to the prime minister’s decision to set October of every year as the ‘Month of Action for Elderly Vietnamese People.’

The mass performance of five yangsheng gymnastics and yoga repertoires was carried out by 3,333 elderly people following a music show by clubs of life-nourishing gymnastics across the city, according to Nguoi Lao Dong (Laborer) newspaper.   

With such a number of participants, the event has been recognized by the Vietnam Records Organization (Vietkings) as setting a record in the category of ‘the performance of life-nourishing and yoga exercises with the highest number of elderly participants in Vietnam.’

A Vietkings representative presented the record certificate to the aforementioned federation.     

“We have practiced our repertoire carefully so that we can perform it in the best way,” Tuyet Trinh, a female member of the District 11 Yangsheng Gymnastics Club, told Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper.
