Prime Minister Narendra Modi has posted another yoga video on Twitter, ahead of International Yoga Day on June 21 demonstrating the 12 steps of the Surya Namaskar.

However, those with hypertension, hernia, peptic ulcer, sciatica, cervical spondylitis and acute arthritis are advised not to do Surya Namaskar.

The video further states that women who are pregnant or undergoing their menstrual cycle should avoid doing Surya Namaskar.

Notably, the various steps that make up the Surya Namaskar include the Pranamasana, Hastauttanasana, Hastapadasana, Ashwa Sanchalanasana,
