Yoga is a physical, mental and spiritual practice from ancient India. For many people, it is a way to keep fit and relax.

In December 2014, people declared June 21st the International Day of Yoga. June 21st is also the summer solstice, which is the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere.

Millions around the world celebrated Yoga Day. In India, tens of thousands joined Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a yoga session.

Difficult words: declare (make something official), hemisphere (a half of the earth), session (the time when you do something).
