International Yoga Day 2020 is right around the corner and as we do for fashion and beauty inspiration, the world of Bollywood beckons us for yoga as well. It's well known that the celebrities of B-town make fitness their top priority to complement their work. Pilates and cardio sessions may be a few of their choices but homegrown yoga is always a top pick in Bollywood circles. On the occasion of Yoga Day 2020, we're looking at the stars who swear by the fitness practice and give us yoga inspiration all through the year.
1. Shilpa Shetty
I've suffered from muscle spasms and back stiffness very often in the past. When I started Yoga, I was skeptical about performing a lot of the complex asanas. Being able to flex and stretch the way I can today has been a very steady and gradual process made possible by two things: Yoga and my will-power. Today, I can easily move my back while practicing asanas like the #CatCamel pose. It's a very easy asana, but it helps improve the spine's flexibility, strengthens the wrist and the shoulder, helps relax and calm the mind. Enough motivation to start the week on an energetic note. How do you start your week? #MondayMotivation #FitIndia #FitIndiaMovement #yoga #yogisofinstagram #yog #CatCamelpose #health #fitfam #strengthen #fitnessADVERTISEMENT
It goes without saying that Shilpa is the yogic pro in B-town. The fabulous fitness-ista holds the crown as one of the earliest proponents of the practice who even released instructional DVDs before the days of social media. That's where Shilpa shares her yoga moves today as well as on her app.
2. Malaika Arora
There's no one who looks as good doing yoga as Malaika. With a chain of yoga studios to her name, following a healthy lifestyle has always been a top task. Malaika has been sharing her contorting skills with us for ages and manages to do so looking extremely stylish.
3. Kareena Kapoor
#throwback to the time when travelling to @kareenakapoorkhan and making her do dozens of Suryanamaskars were just the beginning of our high intensity trainings! The dedicated darling of a human she is❤️ @kareenakapoorkhan @rupal_sidh @rupals_yogasthenics #kareenakapoorkhan #kareenakapoor #celebrityyogatrainer #celebrityfitness #yogaeverydamndayADVERTISEMENT
From her much-talked about size zero on-screen appearance to her post-pregnancy transformation, Kareena's workout game has always been a talking point. Most notably, she is known for her superb Surya Namaskar skills which are a staple even when she travels.
4. Rakulpreet Singh
Throwback : when the world wasn't upside down but I was !! My yoga journey Began in 2018 and since then it's pure joy to do my practice everyday. Life is all about balance. You don't always need to be getting things done. Sometimes it's absolutely ok to shut down , kick back and do nothing. ❤️ @anshukayoga this was the first time I did an inversion ????
The actresses' yoga journey began all the way in 2018. She's fond of the workout form and calls it a 'pure joy' to do every day. Regular yoga on the mat might have been getting too monotonous for her as she works an inverted pose here.
5. Jacqueline Fernandez
Possibly one of the fittest actresses in Bollywood, Jacqueline's toned physique is all kinds of inspiration. With pole dancing and runs, she can't turn away from a yoga pose too. Here she tries an inverted pose which boosts circulation.
6. Alaya Furniturewala
Though Alaya may only a film old in Bollywood, she has progressed far ahead in the yoga world. She may not have practised it before but it has quickly become her 'new favourite thing' in the lockdown.
7. Bipasha Basu
A fitness inspiration for many years, yoga is one of the workout forms that fits effortlessly into Bipasha's repertoire and helps her build her strong physique.Comments
