Author Sarah Tucker reports on the United Nations marking the first International Yoga Day on Sunday
On Sunday, yoga enthusiasts will flock to London’s Alexandra Palace and the Southbank to celebrate the United Nations marking the first International Yoga Day.
With classes offered for free and organised at the behest of the Indian Prime Minister Narenda Modi, over 177 countries around the world are taking part. In London, events run from 9.30am to 2.30pm.
