  • International Yoga Day LIVE: PM Modi begins the day with a yoga session in Lucknow

The United Nations designated International Yoga Day in 2014.

"On the occasion of Yoga Day, Prime Minister Modi addressed a gathering in Lucknow".

Recalling how the United Nations gave its nod for International Day of Yoga, Modi said there might not be a single country where yoga-related programmes are not held.

Parveen Jain, President of National Real Estate Development Council (NAREDCO) - the apex body of the real estate sector, also said that to remain mentally and physically fit - yoga is very essential. Prime Minister further said, "Yoga can help people keep calm....it helps people to maintain a healthy body and mind despite various challenges". "Now, it has become part of every person's life", he said.

Modi urged everyone to make yoga part of their lives saying that it is not expensive to practice yoga and should be included in the daily lives just as salt is included in food. In the last three years, new yoga training institutes have developed, demand for yoga trainers and training institutes have been rising. One could spot a celeb here and a politician there, an athlete stretching or a yoga enthusiast enjoying doing some of the trickiest asanas all over the country!

Narendra Modi started the International Yoga Day celebrations from Lucknow with UP CM Yogi Adityanath and nearly 50,000 participants.
