The launch on Friday was also timed to mark Thai Heritage Conservation Day, which falls on April 2 every year.

The hermit exercises are a series of stretches that have been traditionally used to ease aches and pains. The postures are depicted in statues at Wat Phra Chetuphon (Wat Pho) that were placed there during the reign of King Rama III (1824-1851).
