India’s yoga-loving prime minister Narendra Modi celebrated the second annual International Yoga Day by leading a throng of practitioners through a series of poses and breathing exercises.
He arose early Tuesday to get down on a mat with 30,000 others in the city of Chandigarh—and proclaimed the 5,000 year-old Indian tradition to be the “biggest mass movement in the world”.
People who make yoga an integral part of their life accrue a range of health benefits, including stress reduction, better balance and more flexibility of movement.
Last year, the Indian government announced that millions of its country’s stressed and out-of-shape officials would be participating in free daily yoga lessons.
