The Prime Minister participated in the Yoga Day celebrations at Rajpath in New Delhi in 2015, the Capitol Complex in Chandigarh in 2016 and at the Ramabai Ambedkar Sabha Sthal in Lucknow in 2017.

This handout photograph released by India's Press Information Bureau on June 21, 2018 shows Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi (C) taking part in a yoga session to mark International Yoga Day in Dehradun in Uttarakhand state.

Yoga is thus everywhere in India now.

As modern lifestyles take a toll on the body and mind, Modi said it is unfortunate that the focus of the conventional system of healthcare is more on cure rather than on prevention.

Let us know in the comment section below.

Addressing the event, the Minister said the discipline of yoga helps to maintain a healthy and attractive life. For the first time, they became so co-proponents on a proposal.

But this doesn't bother the spiritual head of the biggest ashram or retreat in Rishikesh, the Indian city on the banks of the Ganges river considered the world yoga capital.

Earlier the record turnout was around 5,000 past year.

YO1 is derived from "Youvan" meaning youth in Sanskrit. Even though the country has scaled many heights of urbanization, it has done so while being rooted in its traditions and culture. The UN General Assembly declared June 21 as the International Yoga Day in 2014.

Yoga training programmes, camps, retreats, seminars, workshops are organized at group and mass level.

There was also floating yoga on board the Japanese naval ship JS Ise and on the Indian Navy's INS Sahyadri, both taking part in military exercises in the Pacific, the Indian Navy said.

More than 2,500 students and NCC cadets from schools in BHEL Township performed yoga postures under the supervision of teachers. Breath is the most attractive gift and yoga makes people realize that.

Harcharen Vaz, an Indian education professional, said: "I started off with power yoga a year ago and had been practising it aggressively". Don't people from RJD and JDU practice Yoga? The event was jointly hosted by the Nepali government and a yoga foundation, Xinhua news agency reported. It was heartening to see the children participate in the event with good cheer and a lot of enthusiasm.

Yoga connect people from different nations and different walks of life, it fosters a sense of harmony among fellow beings and with the rest of the universe.
