To celebrate Yoga’s holistic approach and to promote physical and mental health, but within constraints of social distancing, we practiced yoga, as a family – Three generations together today! We wish you a happy world Yoda day! #internationalyogaday.”

Actress Shilpa Shetty shared a video on her Instagram handle and spoke on the importance of yoga and breathing exercises.
Captioning her post she wrote a long- note stating, “Happy World Yoga Day. BREATHE… it’s THE most important function that the body performs. Breathing right helps provide oxygen to the organs to perform all the crucial processes, from cognition to digestion to strengthening the immune system. So, on World Yoga Day, let’s start by practicing the Bhramari Pranayama. It helps generate up to 15% more nitric oxide through the vibrations of the humming sound, ‘Aum’.”
She further added, “This, in turn, helps early recovery and healing from Covid-19. Spare a few minutes to focus on your breathing today with the Bhramari Pranayama. It relaxes the mind and lowers stress while improving concentration and alleviating anxiety. Tag 3 friends who MUST start their day by breathing right. Tab tak, swasth raho, mast raho!”
Many other Bollywood celebs also pour in wishes for International Yoga Day and ask their fans to integrate yoga into their daily routine.
