PM Modi shares video of yoga asan, says it helps relieve stress
NEW DELHI: In a bid to encourage people to stay fit during lockdown, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday shared a video of a yoga asan which he practices.
"Whenever I get time, I practice Yoga Nidra once or twice a week," he wrote on Twitter.
Yoga nidra is known for relieving stress.
"It furthers overall well-being, relaxes the mind, reduces stress and anxiety," he wrote.
He shared a video each in English and Hindi.
According to details available on various websites, yoga nidra helps relieve stress.
Responding to a question during Mann ki Baat on Sunday on how he is keepingÂ fit during the lockdown, he had said he would post the videos.
周日“心连心”（Mann ki Baat）广播节目中，被问及在封城期间他是如何保持身体健康的，他回答说会分享视频。
"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 asanas have greatly benefited me. It's possible that some of these tips might help you too during the lockdown," he said on Sunday.
A nationwide 21-day lockdown was enforced on March 24 to check the spread of coronavirus as social distancing is possibly the only way to prevent people from infecting the deadly virus.

By now you should know it’s not your cup of tea to run the Country. For God sake Quit
A 21 days simple Yoga for beginners would have given tremendous benefits for them both in physical & mental health.
People who die because of any illness is their own making... not being careful and a false sense of bravado...
Feku Modi better leave gossips work for citizens immediate needs, otherwise take a pleasure trip to Wuhan along with Amit so that all Indians get relive and stress.
Naatakendra DramaDas was going to Give Up Social Media. But then Everyone started talking about Corona and ignoring Naatakendra. So Naatakendra who craves Media Attention gave up his plans.
This guy is in self promoting mode 24 x7 x 365 He should have been a actor
Only idiots can share these kind of things at this point

Is this the appropriate time to think about yoga, you bloody fool Modi? SHAME on you for not fighting this war against corona virus. Doctors and nurses dont have proper equipment to deal with this virus. 70% Indians dont have health insurance. And here we have shameless moron Modi focusing on yoga.
You are basically publicity seeker , Chief Political Marketing Man of BJP ,winning elections by dividing country on religion basis and yet you will rule for 50 years, because there is no opposition in the country.
I am thoroughly Disappointed in the manner in which this Government also fools the public even, in times of Distress.
people are dying out of starvation and he is preaching yoga.
Masterstroke by Modiji.
Ask him to active in helping migrant worker.. people are dying due to hunger...
what evwr the situation of the country or the world. this man wants publicity. shame
come on now media,stop asking such useless question to him.tired of watching all these drama,and he is also shameless never feel shy to answers such useless questions.
Better he advises Yoga helping relive hunger
Poor labourers walking on the street to reach their villages can see this to practice.
First time since independence a PM has shared video of yoga asan. This never happened in 60 years of Congress rule. Salute. Hats off. Jai Hind. Bharat Mata ki Jai.
Nero is busy in Yoga. If he had installed thermal scanners on airports when Corona was around the corner in India. He could have save the whole Nation. But he didn't act swiftly and now the whole nation (majorly poor) are suffering from him idiotic Lockdown. He should have ensured the the supplies of food,medicines should prompt before announcing Lock down.
This is also a good lesson for the country.
Statement by a painter I met last week, If I work may die of covid-19 and If I dont work will die of hunger. Dont know if I have to tell him to do Yoga
