HSS Phoenix has successfully organized ‘Surya Namaskar Yogathon 2016’ on 31 January 2016 at the Horizon Community Center, Scottsdale, Arizona, with a cause called "Health for Humanity". The event was attended by a number of enthusiasts of all age groups. It was a great job from HSS volunteers, creating awareness among Indian Diaspora about the effective benefits of Surya Namaskar.
