Deepika Padukone is a passionate advocate for yoga. She has been practising yoga for many years and has spoken about the many benefits of the practice. So it was only fair for her to take to Instagram to show her love for it on International Day of Yoga. In a recent post captioned, "How many of you know what this asana is called? #worldyogaday," Deepika Padukone can be seen practising her yoga skills wearing a black sports bra and yoga tights from Adidas attempting and achieving the perfect posture. As a brand ambassador for Adidas, it was only fair for us to spot her in it. But like anything Deepika Padukone wears, a plain black monochrome outfit does equal justice on any day apart from International Day of Yoga as well. She tied her hair up in a sleek low bun which is not just a signature for stylish reasons but also to allow hassle-free mobility. Minimal effort reaps maximum results for Deepika Padukone whether she is on the red carpets or in blockbuster films, and the same can be said for her off-duty sporty looks as well.
Upon asking a question in her caption, reactions poured in on the comments of some of the most hilarious and mostly true reactions. One user wrote, "Is it "Bed k neeche chappal phasi" aasan?" "Falling on your parents feet for Goa trip permission asana," said another. Among the few who got it right, fellow yogini Alia Bhatt was one of them who commented, "Puppy pose." For the unversed, Deepika Padukone can be seen attempting the Puppy pose, also known as Uttana Shishosana in Sanskrit, that stretches the spine, shoulders, and chest. It is a great pose for beginners and can be modified to make it more or less challenging.
Deepika Padukone often shares moments from her yoga sessions on social media, sometimes even with popular Bollywood instructor, Anshuka, at her Mumbai studio, Anshuka Yoga. A good session on this important day couldn't help but share their bare-faced selfies with the world. One can tell Deepika Padukone's skincare routine with her products is working fabulously on her skin to give her that natural and flawless glow.
She has posted videos of herself doing a variety of poses, including Warrior Pose, Tree Pose, Downward Dog Pose, and Bridge Pose on Instagram in the past and always in stylish monochrome Adidas sets.
Yoga has been widely recognized as a good way to improve your physical and mental health. It is a safe and effective way to get in shape, reduce stress, and improve your overall well-being. Deepika Padukone's post may just be the calling you needed to start your wellness journey.
