International Yoga Day Is Nearing, Here Are 5 Celebrities Who Owe Their Physical and Mental Perfection to Yoga

"Yoga is an invaluable gift of India's ancient tradition. It embodies unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfillment; harmony between man and nature; a holistic approach to health and well-being. It is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and the nature. By changing our lifestyle and creating consciousness, it can help in well being. Let us work towards adopting an International Yoga Day. " – Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

In 2014, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi proposed 21 June, the longest day of the year, to be declared as the International Yoga Day at the United Nations General Assembly. Since then, 21 June annually witnesses millions of fitness freaks and international dignitaries perform yoga.
