    I would like to check if my mother in law can register to take part. She’s 73 years old and is a former national champion in yoga. She practices yoga till date, daily without fail and got excited to know that our beloved Prime minister will be in Mysore on that day. It is her wish to be part of that celebration. She had taken part in the Guinness world record international yoga day celebration held at Vidhana Soudha few years ago. Please help me fulfil her wish.
