Coronavirus lockdown: This is how PM Modi remains fit with yoga
As people struggle to cope up amid the lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has shared 3D animated videos of him performing yoga to show how he remains fit.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday took to Twitter to share 3D animated videos of him performing yoga to show how he remains fit during the coronavirus lockdown. This comes as COVID-19 cases In India crossed 1,000 mark.
"During yesterday's #MannKiBaat, someone asked me about my fitness routine during this time. Hence, thought of sharing these Yoga videos," he tweeted. I hope you also begin practising Yoga regularly," he wrote.
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.— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) March 30, 2020
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
Responding to a question in his monthly radio address "Mann ki Baat" on Sunday on how he is keeping fit during the lockdown, the prime minister had said he would post the "Yoga with Modi" videos.
"But do remember, that I am not a fitness expert, I am also not a yoga teacher. I am merely a practitioner," he had said.
"... some yoga asanaas have greatly benefitted me. It is possible that some of these tips might help you too during the lockdown," Modi said on Sunday.
The Prime Minister, who declared a 21-day lockdown last week, also warned people against violation of the restrictions, saying those doing so were "playing with their own lives". He apologized for the lockdown decision inconveniencing the poor, but made it clear that it was the need of the hour.
In the run-up to International Yoga Day in June last year, the Prime Minister had shared similar videos to encourage people to practise yoga.
