  • India gears up to celebrate 4th International Yoga Day

The Chief Minister, along with Power Minister R K Singh participated at the state Yoga celebration in Raipur.

Agastya Muni, one of the Satyas, has worked in India to make yoga a part of life. Prime Minister performed Yogasan, Pranayama and Dhyan with about 50,000 yoga enthusiasts and volunteers at the Forest Research Institute campus. "Yoga imparts mental, physical and spiritual discipline to our lifestyle", the LG said.

"Dehradun to Dublin, Shanghai to Chicago, Jakarta to Johannesburg, Himalayan highlands or deserts, yoga is enriching millions of lives all over the world". "Yoga is lovely because it is ancient yet modern, it is constant yet evolving", he said.

The Consulate General of India in South Africa also released a statement to extend Yoga Day wishes.

School and college students, government servants and people of all ages stretched their limbs to practice asanas at public demonstrations, workshops and lectures on yoga held across the central districts to mark the International Day of Yoga on Thursday. Giving him company were thousands of other yoga enthusiasts who performed the asanas on saffron yoga mats. Instead of increasing suffering, yoga heals.




Even at the World Economic Forum in Davos early this year, Modi took a team of yoga experts who conducted meditative and sweat-out sessions for top company leaders from all over the world.

The growing popularity of yoga across the globe had brought India closer to the world and this position is going to get strengthened in times to come, he said.

There was also floating yoga on board the Japanese naval ship JS Ise and on the Indian Navy's INS Sahyadri, both taking part in military exercises in the Pacific, the Indian Navy said. "Instead of dividing, Yoga unites". The Culture Minister spoke at length about the positive aspects of Yoga for keeping body and mind totally stress-free.The Minister said, as a doctor he is practising Yoga for almost 30 years. Actually, June 21 is the longest day in the Northern Goddard.

Yoga is a spiritual exercise that operates in the public domain, giving people of different tribes, ethnicities, race and gender a scope to adopt and adapt. Echoing similar sentiments, Union Ayush Minister Shripad Naik said the fact that yoga helps in tackling various challenges of life is yet to be understood by the people.

Modi portrays himself as a keen yoga practitioner, last week posting on Twitter his morning routine involving plodding around a tree and flexing over a boulder.
