New Delhi: Ahead of the upcoming International Day of Yoga, June 21, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday tweeted a video of an animated version of himself performing 'Vakrasana'.

The animated clip took the audience step by step through each detail of the 'Vakrasana', or the spinal twist yoga pose. It also explained the benefits.

"Have you ever practiced Vakrasana? Its advantages are numerous and long lasting. Watch this video," Modi tweeted.

World Yoga Day was suggested by Modi and adopted by the UN General Assembly in 2014.

Governments of many nations mark the day in a big way with thousands participating in mass yoga events. Modi is expected to join an event in Ranchi this year.
