Ahead of International Yoga Day on June 21, PM Modi on Wednesday tweeted another yoga video that demonstrates an animated version of him performing 'Surya Namaskar' or 'Sun salutation'
Wearing an orange T-shirt and track pants in a 3D video, PM Modi's animated version can be seen performing the posture while a voice-over directs the entire asana in detail, naming each step.
Surya Namaskar increases the capability of your lungs, it is useful in the management of Diabetes, increases the metabolism of the body, regulates the secretion of endocrine glands, helps manage body weight, strengthens muscles.
In the video, he further informed that people with Hernia or peptic ulcer must not perform the asana, including those suffering from sciatica, cervical spondylitis, and acute arthritis. Menstruating women and pregnant women should not perform Surya Namaskar either.
The Prime Minister has been regularly tweeting asana videos since June 5 in the run-up to the International Yoga Day, which was started after Modi, in 2014, 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 day is marked each year with multiple events in the country and abroad.
