Videos: Here Are All The Yoga Asanas Recommended By Shilpa Shetty
While almost all Bollywood actresses advocate the importance of fitness in their lives, there are few who are as ardent in their belief as Shilpa Shetty. The actor regularly shares her fitness routines on Instagram and has built up quite a following based on her fitness videos. Today, Shetty is known as much as an actor as she is known as an advocate for Yoga which is often referred to as the architecture of peace for its physical, emotional and mental benefits.
On her birthday, we share a list of yoga asanas that are recommended by her on Instagram:
“Life is all about finding the perfect ‘balance’ in everything that we do. Be it our work-life balance, or our income-expenses, or even our food intake. Everything done in moderation while maintaining a healthy balance derives the best results. So, whenever I feel like I need to centre myself, I turn to Yoga; it’s my favourite balancing act. Earlier today, I decided to practice Tolasana, which is a hand-balancing asana. It may look easy, but requires a lot of core strength. It helps strengthen the wrist, arms, shoulders, chest, and core. It also works on toning the abdomen, while improving flexibility in the hip and hamstrings. Always remember, this asana should not be practiced with current or recent shoulder or wrist injuries,” she shares.
“I decided to do the Paschimottanasana, or the Forward Bend Pose. It may look rather easy, but it gives the spine, shoulders, and hamstrings that much-needed stretch. It also enhances blood flow to the pelvic region. Whenever you feel like the body has stiffened up, start your day with this yoga asana,” she wrote in an Instagram post.
“The best way to beat the stress is to occasionally draw out the ‘boat’ pose or the Naukasana. It can row you out of many issues that your body may be undergoing. It helps strengthen the core & hip flexors. It also strengthens and improves flexibility in the hip joints and legs. It stimulates abdominal organs and improves digestion, while improving the steadiness of the body,” reads her post.
Eka Pada Baddha Padma Vrikshasana
“It is excellent for strengthening the ankles, calves, thighs, glutes, and spine. It also improves balance, flexibility of the knees and ankles, and helps improve concentration,” Shetty believes.
Eka Pada Dhanurasana
“Today began with Eka Pada Dhanurasana and Dhanurasana. Apart from giving the back some much-needed stretching & strengthening; it improves the function of the pancreas, stimulates reproductive organs, and opens up the chest, shoulders, and neck. It also helps develop an attitude of self confidence and fearlessness,” she wrote in her Instagram post.
“Focusing on your navel will help you open your mind and reduce blood sugar levels as it works on the pancreas. It also helps improve the flexibility and mobility of the knee and ankle joints. Moreover, the frog pose helps reduce fat from thighs, belly, and hips,” the actress shared.
