I just got the word:

Dear Yasmin Fudakowska-Gow,

Thank you for your recent evidence. We are pleased to confirm you have set a new Guinness World Record for ‘Longest Yoga Marathon (Female)’.

A certificate has been couriered to you and should arrive shortly.

Yours sincerely,

Guinness World Records


WooHooo! I think I’m going to have a gathering of sorts at the studio sometime in September. Maybe a potluck party? You will all be invited, of course. 🙂

For now, I’m in Maine on a little beach retreat with Craig and my parents. It’s lovely to wake up near the sea and do yoga outside. I am trying to practice twice daily– a hour before breakfast and an hour before dinner. It’s a good routine, but I’m allowing myself a little flexibility to do whatever I feel like. After so much busyness in the last four months, it is also great to spend time with people I love. I am enjoying being immersing myself in vacation mode, which involves plenty of reading, beach combing and food.

(The book I’m reading right now is “Three Cups of Tea” by Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin. I highly recommend it. Very inspiring.)

I still want to meet my fundraising objective of $10,800 for the Stephen Lewis Foundation by Dec. 1. We’re 22% of the way there. Anything you can contribute to this great cause is really appreciated. Please spread the word. Also, if you have any ideas for how I can continue fundraising, please let me know.

Here’s the link to my online donation page:

    woo hoo!! congrats. having the luck that i do, i found your blog after you were about 103 days into your challenge. however, i found it so interesting that i read it cover to cover (do blogs have covers?…mind boggling) in about 2 days at work. i'm new to yoga and it's been so fun for me to see where the practice can take people. by the way, i can do about 8 salutations before wanting do die, but your blog makes me feel proud of each and everyone of them. enjoy your time away and thanks for sharing!!

    It is so incredible that you did this. I didn't even find your blog until after you were done, but I'm totally inspired & blown away! Thank you for all that you have done for the yoga community & to raise awareness as well. When I have some money to spare (and I should in a week or so) I'll definitely donate. It won't be much, but it's something, at least!

    Dear Yasmin. I only found your website today. Can I still donate? The donations page seems to have been taken down?

    Well done on your amazing challenge and journey, totally inspired me.

    What are you planning next?
