The development comes after PM Modi, earlier in the day, shared a video of a yoga asan which he practices daily. PM Modi shared the video with an effort to encourage people to stay fit during the nationwide lockdown. “Whenever I get time, I practice Yoga Nidra once or twice a week,” he wrote on Twitter.
PM Modi said that the Yoga nidra is known for relieving stress. “It furthers overall well-being, relaxes the mind, reduces stress and anxiety,” he wrote on Twitter. PM Modi had shared the video both in English and Hindi.
As per opinions of experts, yoga nidra helps relieve stress. Replying to a question during ‘Mann ki Baat’ on Sunday on how he is keeping fit during the lockdown, PM Modi had said he would post the 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.
