International Day of Yoga in Japan

A large event was hosted by the Indian Embassy in Japan to celebrate the United Nations designated International Day of Yoga on Thursday at Tokyo's Tsukiji Honganji temple. The International Day of Yoga has been celebrated across the world annually on June 21 since 2015. 

This year is the first time I have heard of it. (Maybe because I do not practice yoga.) Do you practice yoga?  Did you know about this annual day of yoga?

I used to do yoga back when I was a teenager. My body was, and still is, a bit too stiff for yoga. They say that yoga will soften your limbs, but it never. happened to me. What I learned most from the sessions were the various breathing techniques, and I still use some of them.
Yes, I have heard of the International Day of Yoga.

I don't do yoga, so I didn't know. Yoga seems to be popular in Japan as well.

I do a little yoga, but not enough to have heard of this day, apparently!
