Shilpa Shetty begins her week with yoga asana for cleansing

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.

The actress was seen doing the abdominal twist asana that is known to have cleansing benefits when done properly. In the video, Shilpa can be seen standing on a yoga mat and stretching her body backwards followed by a plank position. Her position changes to balancing her body while sitting on toes. The actress repeats this yoga posture on both sides.

Shilpa attributed her post to the celebrated Indian yoga teacher B.K. S. Iyengar. Her post read, “ I remember reading a quote by Shri B.K. S. Iyengar a while ago. “Asanas maintain the strength and health of the body, without which little progress can be made. Asanas keep the body in harmony with nature.”  

Shilpa keeps switching between the yoga poses she does and even her exercise regime.

Touching upon it, she adds, “I enjoy practising diverse asanas because each one of them helps me work on my mind, body, and soul effectively. I started my day with the Udarakarshanasana (or the abdominal twist), which is a part of Shankha Prakshalana: the yogic cleansing of the intestine.”

According to the actress, these are the benefits of Udarakarshanasana:

  • It helps relieve constipation and other digestive issues
  • It also helps remove toxins from the body
  • It improves spine flexibility
  • It provides a good stretch to toes, ankles and knee joints.

And all the advantages combined convince Shilpa that there is “no better way to start the week” for her.
