Malaika Arora is very flexible and the credit perhaps goes to her dedication towards exercising, especially yoga.
The Chhaiya Chhaiya actor has inspired us by performing a variety of yoga asanas; her Instagram posts are proof. And today we have the 47-year-old fitness enthusiast doing yet another yoga asana called Parivrtta Parsvakonasana. “It is an excellent yoga pose for stronger, tighter, and sculpted abs,” she wrote.
This yoga asana also helps strengthen and stretch the legs, knees, and ankles, according to yogajournal.com. It stretches the groins, spine, chest, lungs and shoulders, and improves balance and stamina.
Malaika also explained the steps for doing the asana. Take a look:
