Time and again, Bollywood celebs have shown their passion for fitness by hitting the gym even on their busiest of days. But as the years have gone by, celebrities are now going for a different method to stay fit and fine. They’ve now incorporated yoga into their fitness routine and encouraging everyone to do the same. On the occasion of International Yoga Day 2018, here are some B-Town actresses who took the yoga route.


1. Shilpa Shetty

This video means a lot to me,you will know why.. because there can be No Courage if one is not scared.. Courage is attempting what you are scared of .. Doing yoga for 15 years now and I have no shame in admitting that I was “scared“ to attempt the Sirsaasana.. Having suffered with Cervical spondolisis (still have goose bumps remembering the time I was bedridden for a month) with a C4 C5 disc injury in my neck and recurrent issues having to use a neck brace after (which is why I took up Yoga) It’s taken me 15 years to triumph over my demons..was always very tempted to attempt but I didn’t want to risk my neck as I’m inundated with responsibilities as a mom and a professional.. then I used my “age” as an alibi. So told my Yoga teacher and he said.. “If not now then when??!!The greatest pleasure is when you are able to do what you cannot do”..Started slowly with the wall a month ago and now without any support..only going to show that there is something inside us that is greater than any obstacle.. you just have to have Faith.. and BELIEVE. Will power , determination, positivity and practice will make anything you want to achieve possible..Today I can proudly say ,Yes I have Courage 😇and that’s a great weapon to have 😬. Thank you Guruji @sairajyoga for pushing me 🙏 #mondaymotivation #courage #faith #gratitude #ecstatic #yogi #karmayogi #yogalove #yogachallenge #yogalife #yogagirl #yogainspiration #yogaeverywhere #yogaeveryday #igyog #instayoga #fitnessmotivation #motivation #fitness

She is probably the pioneer of yoga in Bollywood. Her passion for fitness is no secret. Her workout pictures and videos urge people to take up yoga. Her love for yoga gave us the famous DVD called ‘Shilpa’s Yoga’. She left us dumfounded by doing Sirsaasana a couple of months ago, an exercise she has been attempting to ace for the past 15 years.

“Courage is attempting what you are scared of…Doing yoga for 15 years now and I have no shame in admitting that I was “scared” to attempt the Sirsaasana,” wrote Shilpa alongside a video.



2. Alia Bhatt

She doesn’t miss out on her workout even on a vacation. Alia practices a subset of yoga called anti-gravity yoga.  She constantly tries to motivate her fans to lead a healthy lifestyle.



3. Malaika Arora

Malaika swears power yoga and makes time for it despite her busy schedule. She is known to be a fitness freak. She even shared a series of videos leading up to International Yoga Day, inviting her fans to “Inhale. Exhale. And immerse yourself in a world of well-being.” She advised them to ‘remain present’ through ‘conscious breathing’ and ‘controlled movements’.



4. Bipasha Basu

Just like Shilpa Shetty, Bipasha has launched a DVD of her own. On multiple occasions, the actress has shared pictures of doing yoga with her hubby, Karan Singh Grover. “Yoga takes you into the present moment, the only place where life exists,” Bipasha wrote on International Yoga Day, 2016.



5. Kareena Kapoor Khan

Kareena Kapoor getting back in shape after pregnancy has been a much-talked-about topic among people and the secret is yoga. Bebo knows her body so well, so we knew exactly what works for her. We did a lot of Fly Fit-it’s the baby I’ve created, a mix of aerial yoga and Pilates,” yoga expert and Kareena’s trainer had told Vogue in an interview.



6. Jacqueline Fernandez

‘Yogini’ with @lanaroxy ⭐️

The actress needs no introduction to yoga. She has been putting posts of various asanas on her social media handle, thus inspiring her fans to take up a fit lifestyle. She left us stunned when she did a yoga asana with her body balanced on a pole.



7. Nargis Fakhri


Fakhri is obsessed with hatha yoga and has been practising since 2006. The actress never fails to inspire her fans about yoga. She has been seen working out with her beau Matt Alonzo and we absolutely love the videos.
