Bollywood heartthrob Sidharth Malhotra raised the bar of fitness goals on this International Yoga Day by nailing Yoga exercise, Sukhasana, under the ocean waters which is one of the coolest things.
Rather than performing Yoga asanas on land, Sidharth led Bollywood in performing the meditative exercise underwater too. He also shared a throwback picture the on World Yoga Day 2021. In the picture, he was seen performing meditative exercise underwater, just above the ocean floor while scuba diving during his exotic vacation to Maldives.
He was seen sitting crossing his legs simply in asana position and as he floated deep underwater, he rested his hands on his knees as he nailed Sukhasana. In the post, he was seen donning a pair of neon green swimwear shorts, a scuba mask with mask tamer on the strap and a pair of scuba diving fins or flippers.
He captioned the picture, “Check on yourself, as much as you check your Instagram! Happy #InternationalDayOfYoga (sic).”

Know the Method to do Sukhasana
To do this, you need to sit on a Yoga mat or on the floor with your legs stretched out. Now, bend one of your legs and place it under the opposite thigh and repeat the same with the other leg.
For this asana, you need to sit erect and keep your head, neck in a straight line. Now put your hand on your knees or thighs in Chin Mudra or Jnana Mudra, now put your palms up to be open or down to feel grounded and start inhaling slowly, and exhale slowly root down through your seat
Know the Benefits of Sukhasana
Apart from stillness, Sukhasana relieves your muscles and joint pains as it helps the person to maintain a good posture, gives flexibility and provides strength to the legs. This, in turn, lengthens the back muscles and spine, broadens the collarbones and chest, stretches the external aspect of the knees and unlocks the hips.
