Trust hot mommy Kareena Kapoor Khan to always give us fitness goals. She has been consistently working hard to get back into her pre-pregnancy figure, and as always, she trusts yoga! Her latest workout post gave us a sneak peek into her fitness routine and guess what?
Kareena and her yoga instructor Anshuka showed her fans a glimpse of all the moves, and guess what? At the end of the session, the Bollywood babe did the shavasana or the corpse pose to relax her body post the workout.
Here’s what she wrote, “Savasana in my bun with my favouritest @anshukayoga.”
But is savasana as simple as it looks or could you also go wrong? It’s time to find out!
1. Choosing the wrong mat
This might sound harmless, but guess what it isn’t just about practising savasana. You need to do it on the right mat! How are you going to feel relaxed if all you have are aches and numbness, after practising those moves? You might just think it’s regular soreness, but guess what your yoga mat could also be the culprit. If you are slipping, sliding or not receiving any proper support, then make sure you get the right one to help you relax post your workout!
2. Wrong posture
You might think there’s really no proper posture when you practice savasana, but guess what? That’s not true. There is a particular approach that you must follow, and if you aren’t doing that, then it’s time to understand the basics and level up.
Here’s how to do it:
3. Difficulty in staying still
Are you someone who is occupied all the time? Do you always need something to do? Well, if that’s the case, savasana is going to be hard for you. That’s because you have to stay still and focus on the present moment for 10 minutes. If you can’t do it, try scanning your body from head to toe for a few minutes. It will help in a huge way!
4. Mind chatter
What if your body feels relaxed but your mind is still active, during savasana? Well, that’s a common mistake. So, if your mind continues to chatter, try to meditate and notice your thoughts. If they continue to bother you, try and let them go. Of course, this won’t happen in a day. It does take a lot of practice.
