Actors like Alia Bhatt, Malaika Arora, Shilpa Shetty and Bipasha Basu practise yoga on a regular basis. However, considering that they are fitness enthusiasts and like to take it to another level, they often mix yoga with different forms of exercises, like aerial acrobatics. These asanas are not easy to master and require rigorous training sessions but are quite effective for quick results.

Bollywood celebrities often showcase their yoga skills on Instagram.
