"Yoga is a big part of my life."
Anushka Sharma shared her yoga journey over the years on the occasion of International Day of Yoga on June 21, 2022.
The actress shared pictures of her doing various yoga asanas during different years, including when she was pregnant with her daughter Vamika.
Sharing the pictures on Instagram, Anushka wrote: “A throwback of my yoga journey in pictures…
“A relationship that starts and stops too sometimes but one that has seen me through all ages and phases of my life.
“Forever grateful to the ancient and truly unparalleled form of wellness #InternationalYogaDay.”
Many of her fans reacted with a “wow” in the comments section.
A fan wrote: “Dear lovely Anushka super yoga, well done!”
Another commented: “Great, you have superb form.”
Anushka had surprised her fans when she shared a picture of her doing the Shirshasana during her pregnancy.
She had talked about how she did the asana with the help of her husband, cricketer Virat Kohli, and after consulting her doctor.
She wrote: “This exercise is ‘hands-down’ (and legs up) the most difficult one #throwback.
“P.S. – As yoga is a big part of my life, my doctor recommended that I can do all such asanas that I was doing before I was pregnant (after a certain stage) barring twists and extreme forward bends, but of course with the appropriate and required support.
“For the Shirshasana, which I have been doing for many years, I ensured that I used the wall for support and also my very able husband supporting my balance, to be extra safe.
“This was also done under the supervision of my yoga teacher @eefa_shrof who was virtually with me through this session.
“I’m so glad I could continue my practice through my pregnancy.”
Anushka is all set to make her comeback on the silver screen after four years.
She was last seen in the 2018 film Zero, and will now be seen as former cricketer Jhulan Goswami in her biopic, titled Chakda Xpress.
While sharing the Chakda Xpress teaser with her 59 million Instagram followers, Anushka Sharma wrote:
“It is a really special film because it is essentially a story of tremendous sacrifice.”
“Chakda Xpress is inspired by the life and times of former Indian captain Jhulan Goswami and it will be an eye-opener into the world of women’s cricket.”
Directed by Prosit Roy and produced by Clean Slate Films, Chakda Xpress is set to release directly onto Netflix.
