Freshly-elected Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who once meditated in a cave near a Hindu shrine during his campaign, shared a couple of animated yoga lessons in the run-up to International Yoga Day.
A video featuring a character resembling Modi was published on the prime minister's Twitter account on Thursday. Clad in a blue T-shirt and black pants, an animated version of India's top official shows how to perform a tadasana, also known as Palm Tree posture. The video then goes on to explain how this particular exercise contributes to physical health and mental balance.
On 21st June, we will mark #YogaDay2019.
I urge you all to make Yoga an integral part of your life and also inspire others to do the same.
The benefits of Yoga are tremendous.
