Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi hosted a morning yoga session on the north lawn of the United Nations (UN) in New York on Wednesday, June 21, during his first state visit to the US.

The event broke the Guinness World Record for most nationalities at a yoga session. It was held as the UN marked International Yoga Day.

“Yoga is truly universal,” he told the crowd. “When we do yoga, we feel physically fit, mentally calm, and emotionally content,” he said. "But it is not just about doing exercise on a mat. Yoga is a way of life.” Credit: Narendra Modi via Storyful
