Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, whose proposal for the global event won United Nations approval in 2014, led the way, performing his asanas with over 50,000 others in the northern city of Dehradun.

Members of the Modi administration followed the Prime Minister's lead and either attended or hosted yoga events around the country. Instead of further animosity, Yoga assimilates.

Other events were scheduled in New Delhi with 10,000 enthusiasts registered, but the biggest was expected to be in Mysore in the south with 80,000 signing up, according to organisers.

To make the event more relatable to the audiences in the UAE, Saba Khan, founder of House of Nature, a holistic alternative medicine and natural therapy in Abu Dhabi, has created a special Arabic Fusion Yoga.

"As the Sun is for all, the Moon is for all, rivers are for all, in the same way yoga is for all", he said.

Rami Gingari, a yoga instructor from Sudan, says there has been a noticeable increase in yoga studios in the UAE.

For the International Yoga Day (IDY) 2018, the AYUSH Ministry is all set to organise a tour for the overseas Yoga professionals to the "Yoga's birthplace" that is the southern state of Kerala.

The artwork featured Modi, US President Donald Trump, Chinese leader Xi Jinping, Russian President Vladimir Putin and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un all in the lotus position. From politicians to celebrities to sportsman all took part in the Yoga day celebrations held across the country. While it might be hard to believe, it is a fact that religiously practicing yoga is extremely beneficial for your heart and lungs as it causes the organs to rhythmically expand and contract, helping them remain in a healthy condition, India Today reported.

He has also spearheaded an initiative to reclaim the discipline as a historic part of Indian culture since his Hindu nationalist government came to power in 2014.

Yoga has boomed in recent decades, with millions doing it regularly, although in the West it is often more of a gymnastic than a spiritual activity.

Yoga became known in the West towards the end of the 19th century as it was undergoing a major revival in India under the Hindu teacher Swami Vivekananda (1863-1902). It also deepens the experience of doing yoga and establish social connections with people of the yoga community.

"Many of our valued patients are from the UAE and the GCC and this event is a ideal opportunity to introduce yoga to the local community in a way that is educational and fun at the same time", says Saba.
