International Yoga Day 2018: 10 Facts To Know About The Spiritual Exercise

So take a look at how our stars are celebrating International Yoga Day.

"When disintegrating forces gain prominence it is yoga that unites, creates amity in societies, which forms the basis of national unity and unity among nations, and finally leads to universal peace and brotherhood".

Prime Minister Narendra Modi led the country-wide celebrations in Dehradun, where around 50,000 enthusiasts at the Forest Research Institute campus stretched an extra muscle in various yogic asanas. "In a distracted world, yoga helps focus", Modi said in another video released on Twitter this week. As awareness about the need for a healthy lifestyle increases, youngsters as well as senior citizens are keen on following yoga.

Addressing the gathering at Friday, he said, "In today's fast changing time, Yoga binds together a person's body, brain and soul, hence making one experience a feeling of peace".

Yoga is a group of physical, mental and spiritual practices or discipline which originated in ancient India. "In fact, Yoga Day has become one of the biggest mass movements in the quest for good health and well-being", Modi said while addressing a large gathering.

In China, which has close to 11,000 officially recognised yoga schools- underlining the wide following for yoga in the country- the annual worldwide yoga commemoration has taken on a life of its own: besides Indian embassy and consulate-backed activities, local governments and yoga schools have also seized on the event to hold their own yoga demonstrations.

"In yoga, we have the ideal solution to the problems we face, either as individuals or in our society", the Prime Minister said. Instead of further animosity, Yoga assimilates.

Mr. Modi arrived at the Friday at around 6.30 am and addressed the people before performing asanas with them.

Modi said yoga presents a ray of hope for future of the world.

"Yoga is not just a set of exercises that keeps the body fit".

Former Indian cricket team opener Virender Sehwag, who is known for his witty and hilarious posts on social media, came up with another cheeky tweet on the occasion of International Yoga Day on Thursday. It is a passport to health assurance, a key to fitness and wellness.

In Bhubaneswar, a special camp was organized by the Khurda District Patanjali Yoga Samiti on Durga Puja Mandap premises in Nayapalli.Puri Gajapati Dibyasingha Deb, who joined as the chief guest at the camp practiced yoga along with hundreds of participants.
