"When life turns upside down simply adjust your view #yogathoughts," Rakul captioned the post.
The 31-year-old actor did the Sirsasana or headstand wearing a flamingo pink sleeveless crop top and matching workout tights.
Sirsasana Or Headstand Benefits:
Sirsasana is also known as the king of all asanas because it supplies nutrient-rich pure blood to the brain and scalp, thus acting as a regulator.
Additionally, Sirsasana helps calm the mind, alleviates stress and depression, activates the pituitary and pineal glands, stimulates the lymphatic system, and strengthens the upper body, spine, and core. It also enhances lung capacity, stimulates abdominal organs, and boosts digestion.
How To Do Sirsasana?
Begin by sitting in the Vajrasana position to do this pose. Then, widen the knees slightly and place the elbows parallel to the shoulders, keeping arms extended. Now, interlock the fingers and place the crown of your head on the mat.
Lift your knees and shoulder blades off the floor gradually. Then, bring your feet close to your face such that your head and back are in a straight line. Now, lift one leg, followed by the other and extend them. If you are unable to do it, use the wall for support.
