Working out is enjoyable. However, bringing your friends to the gym makes the entire experience more enjoyable and exciting. A throwback video of Malaika Arora, who is currently recovering from an accident, demonstrates this point. The actress and her fellow yoginis hit the yoga studio for a rigorous and energetic full-body workout, inspiring us to get our yoga mats out. Malaika’s yoga partners during the training session were Akansha Ranjan Kapoor, Kubbra Sait, and Nidhi Singh. Janhvi Kapoor even responded amusingly to the video.
Sarvesh Shashi, Malaika Arora’s trainer and yoga partner, posted her video on his Instagram page on Friday with the caption, “#flashbackfriday to these amazing yoginis. Everyone has a wonderful weekend.” The video shows Malaika and the other stars performing Skandasana, also known as the Side Lunge Pose in yoga. Scroll down to watch the video.

Malaika and her fellow yoginis performed the Side Lunge pose, also known as Skandasana, by standing upright with a straight spine and parted legs. They then moved their bodies to one side, folding one leg at the knee and stretching the other, hands joined in a namaste pose. This was followed by the ladies standing straight with one leg slightly raised in the air.
Malaika’s video received a lot of likes and comments from viewers, including celebrities like Janhvi Kapoor, who had an amusing reaction to it. “Why don’t you make me do this?” she wrote.
