It’s that time of the week again when we impatiently await Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty Kundra’s early Monday morning Yoga inspiration to warm up our procrastination shivers. Shilpa catered to our excitement by providing the perfect Monday inspiration and fitness inspo to “prepare the mind, body, and spirit for a good day ahead” with three Yoga asanas as we begin a new work week.

Shilpa took to her social media profile like she has done every week for more than a year, to upload a video straight from her garden, giving followers and health aficionados a peek of her vigorous yet peaceful training session. Wearing a black tank top covered with a pink shirt with cut sleeves that was tied above her waist.

Shilpa completed the athleisure trend by wearing it with tights and pulling her hair back into a high ponytail.

Shilpa stood on a grassy spot and did the tree posture, followed by the warrior pose, and finished with the dancer’s pose. “Nothing better than starting the day with yoga,” she said in the post. “It prepares the mind, body, and spirit for a wonderful day.”

“So, I elected to start my day with the Vrikshasana, followed by the Virabhadrasana III stance, and then Natrajasana,” Shilpa explained. Shilpa enthused about the health advantages of this workout programme, saying, “It strengthens the ankle joints, hips, and legs.” It also improves balance, posture, and flexibility, as well as attention and focus and mind-body synchronization. The ability to breathe in fresh oxygen is a huge plus. Have a wonderful Monday! …. #SwasthRahoMastRaho #SSApp #SimpleSoulful #yoga #yogasehihoga #yogisofinstagram #FitIndiaMovement #MondayMotivation

Vrikshasana, also known as The Tree Pose

It is performed by balancing on one leg, with the other folded and supported on your inner thigh. Extend your hands over your head and point them straight up.

Clasp your hands in anjali mudra. Gaze into the distance, shift your weight to your left leg while keeping your right knee bent in half-lotus position, and hold for a few seconds before releasing and repeating with the opposite leg.

Benefits: This asana promotes mental and physical equilibrium. It strengthens your legs and is a terrific hip opener since it helps the body build pelvic stability and strengthens the bones in your hips and legs. The shifting of the entire body’s weight to each leg strengthens the foot ligaments and tendons. It also strengthens the thighs, calves, and ankles and improves attention.

Precautions: This asana should be avoided by people who have vertigo, migraines, or sleeplessness.

Virabhadrasana, also known as The Warrior Pose

Stand with your feet 4 to 5 feet apart. Place your right foot at a 90-degree angle with your toes pointed out, while your left foot is at a 45-degree angle. Bring your hands up to your shoulders and maintain them parallel to the ground. Bend your right knee and turn your gaze to your right hand. Maintain a square hip and a parallel right thigh.
