In the video Modi can be seen exercising in the garden:
Here are moments from my morning exercises. Apart from Yoga, I walk on a track inspired by the Panchtatvas or 5 elements of nature – Prithvi, Jal, Agni, Vayu, Aakash. This is extremely refreshing and rejuvenating. I also practice

PM Modi shared the video in the morning and it shows him walking across obstacles, doing breathing exercises and some Yoga asanas. PM Narendra Modi’s daily exercise routine includes Yoga along with walking on a track enthused by 5 elements of nature – Prithvi, Jal, Agni, Vayu, Aakash. According to him, this is extremely refreshing and beneficial.
In another tweet, Modi has nominated newly appointed Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy, table tennis star Manika Batra and entire fraternity of brave IPS officers, especially those above 40 to take up the fitness challenge and post their videos.
However, Karnataka’s Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy rejected PM Modi’s challenge. He said he is more concerned about the development of his state than his physical fitness. In the tweet he thanked PM Modi to nominate him but also rejects the challenge:
