A Canadian yoga teacher on Tuesday claimed to have created a Guinness record by performing yoga non-stop for 32 hours.

The current Guinness Record of marathon yoga is 29 hours and four minutes.

Pending Guinness World Record certification, she said, she holds the record for the longest yoga marathon. Guinness records need at least six people to be present at the venue of the event all the time to authenticate them.

During her yoga marathon, the Canadian also raised money for the Stephen Lewis Foundation which is working to combat AIDS in Africa.

Before undertaking the yoga marathon, she completed 108 surya namaskars, or sun salutations, for 108 consecutive days.

"August 3 is my final day of this 108x108 project. It has been an unbelievable adventure so far and a profoundly transformational experience. I have learned from so many great yoga teachers," she said.

"To complete this journey, on August 2 and 3, I am exploring what it would be like to do a prolonged practice and in doing so, have decided to challenge the Guinness World Record for longest yoga marathon, which is 29 hours and 4 minutes. This record has never been attempted by woman nor by a Canadian. My goal is 32 hours,'' the Canadian said.

Like the US, yoga has also become very popular among Canadians in recent years. Major cities like Toronto and Montreal boast a large number of yoga centres.

Andy Murray set a world record by running 3,000 miles in 85 DAYS

DAREDEVIL doc Andy Murray plans to set a world record by running 3,000 miles in 85 DAYS - with NO time off.

The 30-year-old aims to make as many headlines across the world as his tennis namesake by running more than 30 miles a day from John O'Groats to the Sahara desert in North Africa.

The gruelling charity challenge, which begins on November 8, will see the Aberdeen GP complete eight miles MORE than a marathon every day for nearly three months.

Japan's Akinori Kusuda, 65, ran the 26.2-mile distance 52 days in a row last year to claim the Guinness World Record for the most marathons run on consecutive days.

But if Andy achieves his amazing feat the world record will be his.

He said: "It would be amazing to be the benchmark for marathon running. I'm not at that stage yet though so I need to keep focused on getting the job done."

Andy admits his Scotland-to-Sahara adventure is the biggest challenge of his life and his preparations are as brutal as the journey that awaits him.

He plans to run a whopping 100 miles every week until the day his expedition begins.

He is fitting in a night each at his local tennis and squash clubs and two games of five-a-side with his friends to toughen-up his training schedule.

Last weekend, he shattered the record for running the length of Hadrian's Wall by finishing the 84-mile stretch in 16 hours and 59 minutes - THREE HOURS faster than previous holder Jon Watts.

This Saturday, he is tackling Skye's spectacular Cuillin Ridge, a range of mountains regarded as one of the UK's most daunting.

Andy said: "I'm so tired at the moment from all the training. And I know that by December I'll feel twice as exhausted.

"I'm not complaining though. The best thing you can do is forget about what you're doing.

"When I'm running or taking part in any sport, I lose all my thoughts. I'm determined to push myself to the max for this."

John O'Groats to Sahara Desert

DETERMINED Andy starts his epic journey at John O'Groats on November 8.

He'll head south after stopping off to climb Ben Nevis on day five.

Then he will pass through England, France and Spain before enduring temperatures of up to 45°C (113°F) in the Sahara. The adventure finishes in Merzouga, Morocco on January 27.

Andy said: "In Spain and Morocco I'll have to run with a SLEDGE because of the sand.

"It will carry my food, juice, waterproofs, Vaseline, painkillers, passport and money. It'll be tough, but there's just no way round it."

Andy has been taking running tips from marathon man Mark Cooper, 27.

The pair teamed up for the Hadrian's Wall run on Saturday.

Edinburgh office worker Mark ran 50 marathons in 56 days - 1,310 miles from Holland to Spain - earlier this year.
