The preparations for third edition of the International Yoga Day are in full swing. Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev has also confirmed his participation for the event. "I would appeal everyone to come out and perform Yoga on the Yoga day (June 21). Modi ji will be in Lucknow and I will be in Ahmedabad. Yoga is compulsory for all professionals. Yoga gives you fitness, sharp memory and boosts your confidence. Hence, it is a very important exercise for a human being," said Baba Ramdev on Friday promoting the event.
