23-06-2015 07:00

International Yoga Day is on 21st of June. Some people prepare for it. They do yoga in New Delhi. New Delhi is the capital city of India.

Thousands of people are there – school children, members of the armed forces, government officials and fans of yoga. There are so many that they even affect the traffic.

One student talks about yoga. He says that it helps with stress.

Difficult words: the armed forces (the army), government official (person who works for the government – bosses of the country), affect (change in a negative way).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Do you do yoga?
