Prime Minister Narendra Modi is also promoting the significance of yoga during telephonic conversations with international leaders.

During a telephonic conversation with United States President Donald Trump on Saturday, Modi touched upon the significance of practices such as Yoga and Ayurveda for ensuring physical and mental well-being of the people in these difficult times.

Modi also discussed the utility of yoga and traditional herbal medicines while having a telephonic conversation with the Prime Minister of Spain Pedro Sanchez.

He also  shared 3D animated videos of him performing yoga on Twitter after a person asked him about his fitness routine during a ‘Mann Ki Baat’ programme.

Yoga is one of the best ways of keeping oneself fit as well as a de-stressing method which can have multiple health benefits.
