Alia Bhatt performs Sukhasana; here’s why you should too

欢Alia Bhatt’s love and dedication to fitness is not unknown. Time and again, she inspires her followers by sharing sneak peeks from her gym and yoga sessions. It was no different this time as the actor was seen performing yet another yoga asana, the Sukhasana.

Celebrity yoga trainer Anshuka Parwani took to Instagram to share a picture of the 28-year-old performing the pose. “Like Alia believes, ‘it’s a beautiful day to go after your dreams’.” she wrote.

According to Binda Kanayalkar, senior guide, GetSetUp, “‘Sukhasana’ is a posture which signifies a comfortable, steady and stable asan. Yogasutra describes this as ‘sthira sukham asanam’ ‘sthira’ means steady, ‘sukha’ means bliss, comfortable.”

“Sukhasana is very simple and can be performed by anyone who can sit on the floor or on a hard surface. Older adults with back or knee problems can also make an attempt to practice by folding one leg at a time with the support of a cushion under their thighs. Regular practice will show many benefits for physiological age-related ailments,” she added.
