Indian missions in countries like China, Australia, the US, Britain, Pakistan and others organised Yoga practice sessions on various postures that are to be performed on June 21.

Pictures on websites of Indian missions across the world showed that people gathered in large numbers to be part of the international event.

Also, the iconic United Nations (UN) building in New York displayed different Yoga postures.

Syed Akbaruddin, who serves as India’s permanent representative at the United Nations, shared the pictures of the building on Twitter.

“Yoga lights up UN, To celebrate #IDY2016, Yoga postures light up @UN headquarters in New York,” he said in one of the tweets.

The Yoga postures, the pictures suggest, could be seen from far off places in the US city of New York.

The Indian High Commission in Britain held a session at Potters Fields Park, Tower Bridge in London.

Similarly, a mass Yoga practice session was organised in Australia’s capital Canberra as part of the celebrations of the second IDY.

Yoga sessions were also held by Indian missions in China and Pakistan to prepare Yoga enthusiasts for the event.
