If you are into fitness, then it’s a must to follow certain accounts — one of them being Bollywood actor Esha Gupta’s! She frequently posts yoga poses on Instagram, with some really inspiring and thought-provoking captions that you definitely do not want to miss out on!
Known for her roles in movies like Jannat 2 and Rustom, Esha has been quite active on social media, and we love her for giving us a sneak peek into her fitness and yoga moves. In her recent post, she can be seen doing uttanasana.

Step 1: Stand in a tadasana or the mountain pose, and while resting your hands on the hips, exhale and bend forward from the hip, and not your waist.
Step 2: Draw your belly slightly in, and focus on lengthening your front torso as you start with uttanasana.
Step 3: Make sure your knees are straight, and slowly keep your palms on the floor. You can also touch the back of your ankles. Esha can be seen doing the modified movement by holding her arms above her head.
Step 4: Keep breathing, and with each inhale, lift and lengthen your front torso a little bit. And with each exhale, release a little.
Step 5: Hold this position for 30 seconds to 1 minute, depending on what your body allows.
Step 6: To come back from uttanasana, slowly bring your hands back to your hips and rotate at the hip. Do not simply roll your spine up, as it can injure you.
So, if you are pumped enough, go ahead and practice this now!
