Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday shared some Yoga videoes on Twitter after someone asked him about his fitness routine during the lockdown time during 'Mann Ki Baat' on Sunday. Sharing a YouTube link of the videos, PM Modi wrote, "I hope you also begin practising Yoga regularly."
During yesterday’s #MannKiBaat, someone asked me about my fitness routine during this time. Hence, thought of sharing these Yoga videos. I hope you also begin practising Yoga regularly. https://t.co/Ptzxb7R8dN— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) March 30, 2020
PM Modi, in another tweet, said, "I am neither a fitness expert nor a medical expert. Practising Yoga has been an integral part of my life for many years and I have found it beneficial. I am sure many of you also have other ways of remaining fit, which you also must share with others." The videos are also available in different languages, he added.
The Yoga videos are available in different languages. Do have a look. Happy Yoga practicing.... https://t.co/QAJM0UooRm— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) March 30, 2020
Last year, in the run-up to the fifth International Yoga Day on June 21, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had shared videos of his animated version doing several asanas.
In the run-up to the Yoga Day in 2018, Prime Minister posted a video of his morning exercise and yoga on June 13, 2018 from his official residence 7, Lok Kalyan Marg, New Delhi. The video on the twitter was posted following his acceptance to Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli’s popular ‘Fitness Challenge’.
The fitness challenge was the brainchild of the then Minister for Youth Affairs and Sports, Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, who on May 22 had initiated a social media campaign to encourage Indians to exercise more.
Here are moments from my morning exercises. Apart from Yoga, I walk on a track inspired by the Panchtatvas or 5 elements of nature - Prithvi, Jal, Agni, Vayu, Aakash. This is extremely refreshing and rejuvenating. I also practice— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) June 13, 2018

In a bid to encourage people to stay fit during the nationwide lockdown, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said that he will soon upload a couple of his videos on social media platforms.
"As regards to fitness, I think that will be quite a lengthy topic. So, I will upload some videos on it on social media. You can surely see those videos on NamoApp," he said while addressing the 63rd edition of his monthly radio programme Mann ki Baat on March 29. India is under complete lockdown since March 25 after PM Modi asked citizens to stay indoors to contain the global pandemic.
