On the proposal of the Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, starting this year, June 21 is being celebrated as the International Yoga Day. Although the popularity of yoga in our Nepali celebrity circle doesn’t seem to be that much, we have collected and shared the experiences and best wishes of some celebrities on the Yoga Day.
Actress Namrata Shrestha says that, her father had introduced Yoga to her. These days, she practices meditation and relaxation – one of the branches of yoga.
The Indian Embassy in Kathmandu had organized a Yoga workshop to mark the International Yoga Day. The comedy duo MaHa (Madan Krishna Shrestha and Hari Bamsha Acharya) participated in the event. In his Facebook post, Madan Krishna has said, “Happy International Day of Yoga. We did Yoga today in Indian Embassy and in Pashupati area. Yoga is good for health, brain and prosperous life.”
Actor Raj Ballav Koirala says, Yoga is necessary to ‘cleanse your body, mind and soulâ€¦’ He wishes peace and serenity prevail in our lives through prayers, meditation and yoga.
