Mumbai: The world celebrates International Yoga Day on Thursday, and it’s a matter of pride that a practice that originated in ancient India has attained such prominence across the globe.
Our Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s fascination for the set of exercises is well-known and he deserves credit for popularising it further since he took on one of the most important positions in the country.
The importance of Yoga is not lost on our Bollywood stars as well.
Shilpa Shetty Kundra coming out with a CD of her Yoga videos and Lara Dutta Bhupathi practising the exercise with a baby bump, had created huge headlines before.
Among the younger actresses, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Katrina Kaif, Alia Bhatt, Jacqueline Fernandez have spoken about the multiple benefits it has provided them.
On the occasion of International Yoga Day, another actress, Kangana Ranaut has showcased brilliantly some of the Yoga asanas in videos which are going viral.
Kangana twists her body like a professional, almost as if she doesn’t possess any bone, performing ‘Abhyaasa’ and ‘Chakrasana’ in the videos.
These videos prove that Yoga provides immense flexibility to the body and overall well-being that experts have vouched for since decades.
