Yoga has broken the barriers of religion, region and language and has proved to be helpful in uniting humans with human values, the minister said.

Naqvi said he himself has been practising yoga for the last several years and it is the "golden key to good health".

"Yoga provides energy to our body as well as our mind. It helps in maintaining a balance in our lifestyle. The aim of yoga is to calm the chaos of conflicting impulses. Yoga not only positively changes the lifestyle but it also increases the level of health," he said.

Prime Minister Modi led the country-wide celebrations in Ranchi where around 40,000 enthusiasts stretched an extra muscle in various yogic exercises at the Prabhat Tara ground.

In Delhi, the celebrations played out at several venues -- from the sprawling Rajpath and the lawns of Red Fort to municipal parks, hospitals, gardens and offices with thousands of enthusiastic Delhiites performing asanas.
