Prime Minister Narendra Modi joined nearly 37,000 fellow participants at Rajpath on Sunday to mark the International Day of Yoga. The UN resolution, which Modi had proposed during his last visit to New York, has seemingly garnered significant support, with everyone -- from celebrities to Muslim groups -- agreeing to participate in the event.

People across the world practised the ancient art, which, the Prime Minister states, promotes a cleaner way of living and a healthier body.



Below are some pictures of people taking part in Yoga Day celebrations.
