Anushka Sharma has been roped in by the Ministry of AYUSH to promote the practice of yoga, ahead of International Day of Yoga on June 21st.

AYUSH stands for Ayurveda, Yoga & Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy and is charged with developing education, research and propagation of indigenous alternative medicine systems in India.

As part of the project, Anushka will try to motivate fans and fellow Indians to include yoga in their daily fitness routine to uncover its health benefits.

The actress said, “Yoga is the law and it tells us about how to moderate leading our lives. Yoga does not bind us, it liberates us. So, that we can look upon all the creatures of this world with the feeling of love and peace.”

She has also invited persons to take part in the #MyLifeMyYoga video blogging contest.
