We love Malaika Arora for all the fitness inspiration that she fills us with! Bollywood’s favourite yogini always gives her fans a sneak peek into her workout routine, whether it is through her short videos or posts that show her performing yoga asanas, pilates, or high-intensity workouts. She is regular with her exercise regime, and that’s what inspires us the most! And if you’re someone who follows her, you might already know about her #MalaikasMoveOfTheWeek series. 

As part of this series, she usually shares yoga poses to stay fit. And this time around, Malaika took to Instagram to post a picture of herself. In this post, she can be seen doing camatkarasana (wild thing pose). 

Here’s what the chhaiya chhaiya girl of Bollywood wrote in her post:

Namaste Everyone! ? I hope everyone is doing fine and taking utmost care of their health.”

“This week’s #MalaikasMoveOfTheWeek is camatkarasana (wild thing pose). This pose stretches and opens the chest, shoulders, and hips, strengthens the arms as you put your weight on one arm. It is great for energizing the body and the mind, and also improves self-confidence.”

Take a look at her Instagram post:

Here’s how to do camatkarasana (wild thing pose):
  1. Start in adho mukha svanasana(downward-facing dog pose). Lift your left leg and start opening your hip towards the ceiling, making sure you bend the left knee.
  2. Continue opening the hip and begin pivoting on the ball of the right foot. Next, your toes, so that they face the back of the room. Come into position for a backbend.
  3. Bring the left foot to the floor on the outside of your right foot.
  4. Raise your right arm and point it towards the front of the room.
  5. Stay in this position for a few seconds.
  6. Repeat on the other side.
  • If you are a low BP patient, you must avoid this asana.
  • It is right to take an opinion from your doctor before doing this pose. It is important to know if you’re physically fit to perform or not.
  • Because it is a backbend, you need to be more careful while executing the pose.
  • If you’re suffering from any kind of injury in your wrist, shoulder, neck, elbow, and back, stay away from this asana.
  • Avoid this pose, if you’re a migraine patient.

So ladies, be careful and try the pose!
