Indian Ambassador to Ireland Radhika Lal Lokesh launched the Dublin event.

Hundreds of yoga enthusiasts practised their poses in Dartmouth Park on Saturday morning for the launch of International Yoga Day.

About 400 people gathered for the celebration of yoga, which was organised by the Indian Embassy in Ireland, Yoga Therapy Ireland and several other Indian and yoga organisations.

This is the second year an international day of yoga has been celebrated, following lobbying by the prime minister of India Narendra Modi to the United Nations in 2014.

June 21st was declared as the International Day of Yoga by the United Nations General Assembly last December to coincide with the summer solstice.

Over 190 countries, including 40 Muslim countries, supported the move to have a special day for yoga.

The Dublin event was held a few days before the declared date; on Tuesday President Michael D Higgins will host a United Nations International Day of Yoga garden party.
