A 72-member team of City Montessori School (CMS), Lucknow, will leave for the United States tomorrow for a live performance at the United Nations Headquarters on June 21.
On May 19, they staged a special performance before Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath at his official residence.
"We have trained 72 students from different classes to perform at the mega event on Yoga day at UN. It will also be attended by UN Secretary General Ant nio Guterres," CMS founder Jagadish Gandhi told PTI.
"They will leave for the US tomorrow and also visit parts of New York during their stay. A special performance was arranged at the CM's residence where the students were also awarded," he added.
On PM Modi's call, the UN General Assembly declared in December 2014 that June 21 would be observed as International Yoga Day every year.
Besides Lucknow, the government had been considering Bhopal, Jaipur, Ahmedabad, Ranchi and Bengaluru as possible venues for the mega event.
The first Yoga Day celebration in the country was organised at the Rajpath in New Delhi on June 21, 2015, in which representatives of 191 countries had participated.
Last year, the main was organised at Chandigarh.
