On the occasion of World Environment Day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi took to social networking site Twitter and tweeted a video of his animated version doing a yoga asana in order to inspire people to embrace yoga, with few days left for the International Yoga Day on June 21.

In the animated video, PM Narendra Modi demonstrated Trikonasana, a triangle pose, that he took the audience through step by step and explained the benefits of the same. In the 3D animation video, Modi is seen standing on a maroon rug, with huge windows behind him that gives a glimpse of greenery outside. It starts off explaining the three triangles that the human body forms during Trikonasana.

In the video, PM Modi directs every movement and asks the audience to put special attention on the breathing movement. The video even has a cerebro-muscular figure to highlight the areas that the asana would impact upon.

June 21 was designated as World Yoga Day on Modi's suggestion in his speech at the UN General Assembly in 2014, and over the last five years, it has only improved its reach throughout the world.

"On June 21, we will mark Yoga Day 2019. I urge you all to make yoga an integral part of your life and also inspire others to do the same. The benefits of Yoga are tremendous," the Prime Minister said in the Twitter post alongside the video.

Governments of many nations mark the day in a big way with thousands participating in mass Yoga events across the country. Modi is expected to join an event in Ranchi this year.
