Netizens have flooded social media with memes and jokes on the #pawrihorhihai trend started by the influencer Dananeer Mobeen. In fact, the trend became even more famous after musician Yashraj Mukhate added his unique beats to the iconic video! 

Recently, Rakul Preet created her version of ‘pawri’. In her latest social media post, you can catch her practising yoga with celebrity yoga instructor Anshuka Parwani. In the caption, she wrote:

“Yeh main hoon .. yeh @anshukayoga hai aur yeh Yamato pawri ho rahi hai ? and that’s how we pawriiiiiii ?”

Donning a turquoise top and black yoga pants, she is doing a perfect shoulder stand pose (Salamba Sarvangasana) with leg stretching modifications. The De De Pyaar De actress is clearly raising the bar of fitness goals and inspiring all of us with her yoga practise!

Anshuka Parwani also shared the video of Rakulpreet’s power-packed yoga session on Instagram. Here’s what she said: 

“Some synchronised flexibility flow with @rakulpreet is our energy for the day – I love how we randomly decided to get into this stretch while chilling ?”

Isn’t it motivating?


Keep an idea of your risk of weight-related issues.

Here’s how you can go about doing a shoulder stand:
  • Lie down on your mat and bring your knees to your chest. Extending your hands towards your feet.
  • Press your hands into the ground to help you lift your hips off the floor. 
  • Now, move your hands to your lower back to support it with bent elbows while pressing the arms into the ground.
  • Try to maintain balance with hand support on the lower back. This will also reduce the stress on the neck.
  • When you are feeling comfortable in this position, take a deep breath and start lengthening your legs and straightening your knees. Your shoulders, hips, and feet should be in a straight line.
  • Hold the pose for 5 to 10 breaths, according to your comfort.
  • Release the pose by bending the knees over your head and rolling out of the pose.

So, ladies, now it’s your turn to do it like Rakul Preet and improve your flexibility!
