Fitness enthusiast Shilpa Shetty often motivates her fans by posting her yoga videos. In her latest post, she shared her journey of learning Shirshasana (Headstand) which is one of the kost difficult yoga poses. Her post was a compilation of videos from 2017 to 2020 in which she showed how she learned it over time.
She told in the caption, “Whoever thought it was easy for me… Nothing in life is.. till you try consistently. When I first tried the Shirshasana, or the Headstand, almost 3 years ago with a bit of fear as I was told I wouldn’t be able to since I suffered with cervical spondylosis. Started out late, but I made it my personal goal to attempt it with diligence , faith, and the belief that “the mind is more powerful than the body”. It took me a few months to accomplish the mission I was on but nailed it nevertheless. Ever since, I practice this asana to sustain this accomplishment, no matter what happens. Three years later, it still makes me extremely happy to know that I can manage to perform and record myself performing the Shirshasana all by myself.”
She then shared the benefits of doing a headstand. Shilpa wrote, “This asana helps increase blood supply to the head, therefore, it is beneficial for the brain’s functioning and for all sensory organs in the head (eyes, ears, etc.) It also improves focus and ability to concentrate, while it regulates the functioning of all the systems of the body.”
