As many as 182 yoga practitioners from Vadodara''s Yogniketan performed 108 Surya Namaskars or Sun Salutations near the Statue of Unity here on Saturday, the leap day-2020.

Surya Namaskar is a sequence of 12 yoga poses and is known to have an immensely positive impact on body and mind.

A leap year occurs every four years on February 29. Such a day happens after every four years to keep the calendar year in synchrony with the astronomical year, or the time it takes Earth to make a full circle around the sun. (ANI)
