Malaika Arora shares her fitness mantra on perfection

Health, according to the World Health Organization, is “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease and infirmity”.[1] A variety of definitions have been used for different purposes over time. Health can be promoted by encouraging healthful activities, such as regular physical exercise and adequate sleep,[2] and by reducing or avoiding unhealthful activities or situations, such as smoking or excessive stress. Some factors affecting health are due to individual choices, such as whether to engage in a high-risk behavior, while others are due to structural causes, such as whether the society is arranged in a way that makes it easier or harder for people to get necessary healthcare services. Still other factors are beyond both individual and group choices, such as genetic disorders.

Malaika Arora never stops giving us fitness inspo, and this time she has a special message for anyone seeking perfection.

Malaika Arora’s fitness regime has been an inspiration for many people to grab their mats and try yoga poses. In a latest social media post, the yoga enthusiast shared the one fitness mantra she truly swears by – and it is definitely something that we can learn from.

The Instagram video features Malaika practicing Pinchamayurasana or the forearm balance, under the supervision and support of her fitness trainer. 

“I have a firm belief that perfection is a myth but consistency helps one focus on progress… #progressoverperfection,” the actress captioned the video, in which she is seen balancing her body on her forearm and slowly pushing her legs up in the air. Gradually, she nails the Pinchamayurasana. 

She duly acknowledged the motivation she gets from her trainer by thanking him for “always pushing me to the best of my potential”.

Know the 5 benefits of Pincha Mayurasana for your fitness and wellness:

1. Upper back strength:

The forearm stand can provide strength to the shoulders and upper back muscles. The right alignment and posture can do wonders and provide strength to your upper body.

2. Improved balance:

Though this yoga pose seems impossible to look at, it can be achieved with the help of a trainer, the right concentration and focus, and lots of practice. It keeps you in shape and maintains your body balance.

3. Calms the mind:

When you turn upside down, it helps relieve stress and combat depression. The blood rushes downwards and provides fresh blood to the brain. As it is a mindful pose, it helps to combat worrisome and negative thoughts.

4. Igniting the side body:

This upside-down pose requires a lot of muscular toning in the outer torso area. The muscles that zig-zag between the ribs are known as the serratus muscles and they are activated in a big way in this asana. It not only ignites the side body but also balances the overall body.

5. Develops arm strength:

The arm strength, triceps, deltoid, and smaller structures are all strengthened with the performance of Pichamayurasana. The lower arms provide you a weight-bearing base, and as such they get stronger, along with your wrist with the forearm pose.
