International Day of Yoga – level 3

07-07-2017 07:00

Millions around the world celebrated the International Day of Yoga on Wednesday June 21st, which is also the day of the summer solstice, the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere.

The physical, mental and spiritual practice originated in ancient India, and in India alone, tens of thousands joined Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a yoga session. Yoga is a great way to keep fit, relax and get some space from life’s distractions for many people.

The United Nations General Assembly in December 2014 declared Yoga Day unanimously.

Difficult words: originate (come from), alone (only), unanimously (with the agreement of all people involved).
