Shilpa Shetty Kundra has always been wowing us with her acting and dancing moves since the 90s. We’ve been amazed by her moves from her debut movie Baazigar to her moves in Dostana’s Shut up.
The most fabulous part is that she has still maintained her high energy level and her figure. So, how does she do it all?
Well, the simple answer to that is yoga! We all are aware, how much Shilpa Shetty Kundra inspires us with her yoga moves. In fact, she calls herself a ‘Mindful yogi’ on Instagram.
Recently, she used the social media platform to introduce us to a new asana.
“Beginning a new day and a new week on an energetic note may not always be the easiest thing to do. But, what we can do is stretch and flex our muscles well enough to prepare ourselves for the day ahead”, she said in her post.
She showed us how to practice Eka pada Kapotasana:

This particular Yoga asana is often called the one-legged king pigeon pose, and here’s how you can perform the pose:
Step 1: You can start it with the downward-facing dog and bring your right leg forward like you’re getting into a lunge.
Step 2: Place your right foot and knee on the floor, instead of diving.
Step 3: Now try to keep your left leg on the ground and extend it behind you.
Step 4: You need to lift your left leg, according to Shilpa’s version of performing it. You can also use your hands to lift it. Now try extending your right arm back and holding the left foot with the right hand.
Step 5: Raise your left arm up and ahead of you.
This particular flow that Shilpa is practicing might seem difficult in the beginning but you’ll be able to do it right with practice and diligence.
Stating the benefits of this asana, Shilpa wrote in her caption: “This variation not only stretches the thighs, hamstrings, groin, abdomen, chest, shoulders, & neck; but also helps open up the hips & adds more flexibility to the hip region. It also helps the mind and body relieve stress and anxiety… allowing you to think & function in a better manner.”
