Pushing us to receive our Yoga mats out and get each and every muscle working, Malaika Arora dropped a new fitness challenge this Monday. Encouraging fans to “exercise each and every inch of your muscle and welcome new aspirations and goals”, Malaika was once seen teaching netizens how to celebrate strength in one’s body with Virabhadrasana or the Warrior Pose 2 of Yoga.
Nailing the exercise move herself by the poolside, Malaika shared in the caption, “It’s time to calm down, slow down and celebrate you and your loved ones. Bask in the sun, calm down by the pool, exercise each and every inch of your muscle and welcome new aspirations and goals (sic).”
She added, “Today’s pose is that which celebrates the strength in you- Virabhadrasana often referred to as Warrior Pose 2. The pose stretches your hips, groins and shoulders. Improves stability and balance, enhancing respiration and blood circulation (sic).”
Get up with legs 4 to 5 feet apart. Place your correct foot at 90 degrees angle with the toes pointing out while keeping your left foot at 45 degrees angle. Bring your hands at shoulder level and retain them parallel to ground.
Bend your correct knee and look towards your correct hand. Retain your hip-square and correct thigh parallel to the ground. Hold onto the pose for 10 to 15 seconds, then release the posture.
Virabhadrasana or the Warrior Pose 2 energizes tired limbs and opens up your chest and lungs excluding stretching your hips, groins and shoulders and making improvements to stability and balance. It also stimulates your abdominal organs.
