Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi led the way for International Yoga Day, Friday, June 21, performing sun salutations and other flexible feats in a mass session with an estimated 30,000 other devotees of the discipline.
Yoga Day, observed mostly in India but also worldwide on the Northern Hemisphere’s longest day, was Modi’s idea. It was adopted unanimously by the U.N. General Assembly in 2014 and first took place in 2015.
Modi, whose moves in Ranchi, in northern India, were live-streamed on the internet this year took to business networking website LinkedIn to extol yoga as a “panacea” for stress and even hate.
