These 13 yoga exercises are strongly recommended by PM Modi for physical, mental well-being

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has turned yoga into a mass movement and is embracing it, urging others also to follow suit for overall well-being.

During his address at the United Nations General Assembly in 2014, Modi had called for following the ancient tradition of exercise for physical and mental balance, following which the UN also declared June 21 as International Yoga Day.

"Yoga is an invaluable gift of India's ancient tradition. This tradition is 5000 years old. It embodies unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfilment; harmony between man and nature; a holistic approach to health and well-being. It is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and the nature. By changing our lifestyle and creating consciousness, it can help in well being. Let us work towards adopting an International Yoga Day,” Modi had said.

Aptly said, yoga does make a huge difference in lives of people as various yogic exercises improve blood flow in the body, keep one fit and also improves brain activity.

Modi is leading the masses in this regard and is doing everything he can to promote yoga in every household. Apart from joining the masses in India’s Union Territory Chandigarh, Modi also took to Twitter since June 21 and shared various yoga asanas and breathing exercises.
