More than two dozen students from the City Montessori School in Lucknow, India celebrated the first International Day of Yoga at UN Headquarters in New York.
It was the culmination of a school trip to the United States.
Two students, Sagarika and Amulya, both 16, were chosen to speak at the event after a number of government representatives and UN officials.
Stephanie Coutrix spoke with them right after their speech which focused on the significance of yoga. Sagarika began by explaining how she felt after taking part in the celebrations.
