Shilpa Shetty started her week in Manali. Amongst the misty mountains, she started with padahastasana, parvatasana and marjariasana and finally twisted herself in the very fitting mountain pose. It is a great move to open up the entire body while stretching the back, improving digestion and circulation. Matching the skies in a blue sports bra and tights, Shilpa started the week with a natural high.
Manali isn't called ‘Dev Bhoomi' (the Valley of Gods) for nothing! 😇 The energy and beauty are exhilarating. So inspiring that I decided to start my day at the break of dawn with the mountain pose in front of the mountains. Starting with Padahastasana, Parvatasana, Marjariasana... this flow opens up the whole body; strengthens & stretches the back, hamstring, calf muscles & shoulders; improves digestion & blood circulation. If you want to be immovable like the mountains, then you must try this flow. @simplesoulfulapp . . . . . #MondayMotivation #SwasthRahoMastRaho #SSApp #FitIndia #yogaflow #mountain #strength #Yogi #manalidiaries #yogaADVERTISEMENT
When she was in the middle of the forest practicing tree pose, she looked like quite the wellness wonder woman in a printed sports bra and matching tights.
‘Balance' is the ability to control your body's position, whether stationary or while moving. It is a key component of fitness; along with strength, endurance, and flexibility. Vrikshasana, or the tree pose, is a kind of Hatha yoga asana that works on enhancing the body's balancing abilities. It strengthens the thighs, calves, & ankles; and helps improve focus. The shift of the entire body's weight to each leg also helps strengthen the ligaments and tendon of the feet. More importantly, it helps build self-confidence and self-esteem because it aligns & calms the body, mind, & spirit. Dedicate a few minutes to yoga every morning to give you a boost of energy to start your day 🧘🏻♀️ 🧘🏻♂️ @simplesoulfulapp . . . . . #MondayMotivation #SwasthRahoMastRaho #FitIndia #yoga #YogaSeHiHoga #vrikshasana #GetFit2020 #throwbackphoto #fitness #healthylifestyle
