Yoga Day is a proud day for India, thanks to PM Modi it became possible – Vij

Since then we are continuously celebrating Yoga Day on 21st June. It is a proud day for the country that the whole world has accepted this knowledge of India. All this has been possible because of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Make yoga a part of your lifestyle – Vij
Sh. Anil Vij said that the purpose of celebrating Yoga Day is that those who are not engaged in this work yet should also be engaged. Doing yoga for one day in a year is not going to bring any kind of welfare. We celebrate Yoga Day because people should make Yoga a part of their lifestyle.
He said that yoga is a very ancient science of our country; sages have done a lot of research and have determined each and every yoga. The true meaning of yoga is the cultivation of body and mind.
Many types of diseases arise in the body, the way the blood flow should be in the whole body, it gets blocked due to some reason or the other and is not completely done; this is the reason for many diseases.
When we do yoga, its meaning is here to put pressure on different parts of the body so that the blood flow in the body can be done properly. It also protects against many diseases and in case of disease, it is also treated. The meaning of yoga is that we should keep the mind in control and we should also control it.
