Prime Minister Narendra Modi has joined the list of Bollywood celebrities and politicians in doing his bit for the #HumFitTohIndiaFit challenge.
Here are moments from my morning exercises. Apart from Yoga, I walk on a track inspired by the Panchtatvas or 5 elements of nature - Prithvi, Jal, Agni, Vayu, Aakash. This is extremely refreshing and rejuvenating. I also practice— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) June 13, 2018

The video was tweeted out by the prime minister on Wednesday morning, and it shows him walking across obstacles, doing breathing exercises and performing some Yoga asanas.
“I walk on a track inspired by the Panchtatvas or 5 elements of nature - Prithvi, Jal, Agni, Vayu, Aakash. This is extremely refreshing and rejuvenating”, said PM Modi of his morning routine which includes earth, water, fire, air and sky, according to him.
He had been challenged to this by Indian cricketer Virat Kohli, one of the first few names to join the challenge.
