The style diva gives her favourite, easy-to-do asanas and their benefits for a fitter and healthier lifestyle. Read on to know more…
Lotus Position (Padmasana)
Padmasana or Lotus position is a cross-legged yoga posture which helps deepen meditation by calming the mind and alleviating various physical ailments. A regular practice of this posture aids in overall blossoming of the practitioner, just like a lotus; and hence the name Padmasana
“Padmasana is my favourite Yoga asana. It requires the focus of mind and concentration power. This asana signifies balance between the mind, body and soul by nurturing your whole self. It stimulates the flow of energy in body and when practised frequently it will build your ability to concentrate in other situations off the mat!” comments Reebok influencer Malaika Arora.
Sun Salutation (Suryanamakar)
This yoga practice is for the appreciation, paying of honor and reverence to the source of all forms of life, the Sun. It is commonly practiced to energize the body and ease out stiffness.
On Suryanamaskar, Malaika Arora says “Suryanamaskar is a full body workout as it massages, detoxifies, and stimulates almost every organ of the human body. It improves your blood circulation that aids in bringing back the glow on your face; hence ensuring both physical and mental well-being. It is an incredible link between the warming-up poses and the intense yoga asanas. For me, Suryanamskar is my complete workout package”
