It’s a hot favourite with Bollywood celebs like Alia Bhatt and Malaika Arora. And guess what, our Tollywood diva Pragya Jaiswal loves it too. The Nakshatram actor recently posted a couple of photos of her practising aerial yoga, and we can’t help but feel inspired. This gravity-defying form of exercise is an offshoot of traditional yoga, with a twist.
Check out Pragya hanging from nylon ropes as part of her workout session. Aerial yoga, which mixes traditional yoga poses with other forms such as Pilates and dance, requires soft, fabric hammock which is made using special, high-density nylon and held up using carabiners and support chains. Are you also looking for newer ways to stay fit? How about you get inspired by this hottie and try out this form of exercise too?
Want to know why you should be trying it out? For starters, it will help your body become flexible. Since you do the exercises while being up in the air, literally, it helps your body release tension in the muscles and bones. Added bonus, your core muscles get stronger. There’s more. Since you need to practically move and stretch every bit of your body during aerial yoga, your muscles become toned and redefined. It also makes the joints stronger.
