In the run-up to International Day of Yoga 2019 on June 21, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday posted an instructional video of the yoga pose Bhujangasana, also called cobra pose.
In the 3D video posted on Twitter, the animated avatar of the Prime Minister, wearing an orange t-shirt and brown track pants, is stretching into the accurate position, while the voice-over details benefits and tips of the asana.
Prime Minister Modi has been consistent in promoting Yoga via the micro-blogging site.
A few days back, he had shared another animated video of himself performing the Ustrasana and urged people to learn the posture as it helps in strengthening the back, shoulders and improve flexibility.
International Yoga Day was started after Modi, in 2104, suggested it in his speech at the UN General Assembly. The members of the Assembly chose June 21 to mark the day as it is the longest day of the year.
The Central government and other organisations mark this day each year with multiple events and guests from across the globe.
